A good blinking question...
« on: 14 November, 2017, 01:04:23 PM »

On average, how many times does a person blink per year? I remember, when I was about 10 years old, trying to work this out (because then I could then figure out how many times I'd be likely to blink in my entire lifetime).

So I wasted a good couple of weeks of the school holiday wandering round counting my eye blinks but always got interrupted somewhere around 900 and something, or lost count, or decided to go make a new catapult instead.

Now, please scroll forward a few decades. And I still want to find the elusive answer to my boyhood obsession. Just how many times does a person blink in a year?
