What does LLAP stand for?

Live long and prosper

Trekkies may end a conversation by telling you to LLAP, which stands for "live long and prosper." This acronym is a condensed version of Star Trek character Spock's famous salute.

In real life, Trekkies often pair "live long and prosper" with a hand gesture known as the Vulcan salute (shown below). In text, you may see LLAP accompanied by a hand emoji that replicates the Vulcan salute. If so, you can be certain that LLAP stands for "live long and prosper."
