Or your brain will shut down temporarily according to this:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4714067.stm

quote:
They found that blinking suppressed brain activity in the visual cortex and other areas of the brain - known as parietal and prefrontal - which are usually activated when people become conscious of visual events or objects in the outside world.

GMX_________Back when I was employed I used to blink for maybe twenty minutes at a time, only to be awakened by some loud snorting or growling sound that would usually cause me to say"WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?"

GMx: Very cool article. And I agree - folks, don't blink. [Big Grin] (If you're foolish enough [or someone responsible is compelling you] to use IE, go here instead.)

I wonder how many hits from GC people clubblink is getting. I can just imagine the webmaster going "hey, wait a minute, how come we have all these overseas hits all of a sudden. OMG, We are teh famous!!!". Must ask the DJ on Friday [Wink]

And yes, somewhat on topic, the original article was very interesting indeed.
