# How Many Times Do We Blink In A Day?

Lets just make this short and sweet. 16 times a minute, 960 times a hour, 23,040 times a day, 161,280 times a week, 4,838,400 times a month, and 58,060,800 times a year. THAT'S A LOT OF BLINKING!

Well, 16 times a minute, so (oops, had to blink) 60 minutes in a hour, 24 hours in a day, 365 days a year. So that is around 8, 409, 600. I am 13 and so 8, 409, 600 times 13=109324800 is how many times I blinked in my life. That is crazy. :D But The average person blinks 6-8 million times a year. Gosh! That is nuts! Oh, and how many times a second? Once every 3.3 seconds. Goodness! That is nuts!

Yeah? You blink 24 hours a day? That's weird.
Assuming that a person blinks 600 times an hour for the 16 or so hours they're awake, that would be about 9600 blinks in a day.

People can blink well there sleeping. There's another, thin, layer that blinks. Try gently closing your eyes then try blinking.
