Hang on, let me count.
I counted 12 per minute
Awake 18 hours a day
I probably stay awake longer than others so the average will likely be less.
I think this is a pretty good estimate, actually!
I just blinked a lot, so therefore, you are not right about me now. I'm sorry, bit I got some dust in my eye. "Thanks dust! You ruined this person's estimate!"
It's called an average for a reason. Some people are above, some below.
had to look this one up but yes you are correct. Average human blinks every 5 seconds (12 per minute) and is awake 16 hours each day, just over 4.2 million blinks per year
