I love to blink. Blinking is fun. I blink, therefore I am. God gave us eyelids with little hairs poking out so we can blink to our heart's content. I would like to share with my fellow blinkers some quotes and information that I have gathered about that most pleasurable of actions.

Blinking is not a boring, inane function as many would have you believe. Each and every one of us is guilty of taking blinking for granted. Breathing is a revered necessity but blinking has always fallen ten paces behind, in it's shadow. But understand this… if we could not blink our eyes would shrivel up and fall out, and then where would we be?
The truth must be told or who knows where it will all lead? Blinking must be acknowledged as a prime requirement of the human body, second to none.
Confucius very wisely recognised the gravity of the problems caused by rampant blinkism, so I shall leave the last word to him...
“He who will not blink will have two agoneyes.”
