Wink or Blink?
It depends on the intention behind it. blinking is an automatic thing that our body does to keep our eyes wet. Winking is when people close one eye typically to convey a message, but it is not used to keep your eye wet. so in short it it depends on the intention.

Absolutely nailed it, outstanding.

Also welcome to the site!

Your avatar looks like the AOL guy dabbing.
A wink requires that there be an open eye or eyes to counterbalance the closed eye in order to communicate the intent to wink, given that winking is generally a form of communication. Therefore, he blinks.
But couldn't you equally argue that there has to be intention behind the wink? After all, a single eye twitching shut isn't a wink - it's a twitch. Ergo, if he has some form of indicating that closing his eye is signaling something, it's a wink.

That's getting off track though. In short, he normally blinks, but he can wink.

O hai.

Dibs on your soul.

This thread has now been moved to the sandbox.
For obvious reasons
I completely believed this belonged in general discussion.
How is this general discussion quality?

I'm not arguing, I just want to hear your viewpoint.
I find it amusing that this thread was moved from general discussion to the sandbox, but other stupid threads are still there. This thread deserves to be in general just as much as this one
"Close and open one eye quickly, typically to indicate that something is a joke or a secret or as a signal of affection or greeting" is a definition for wink, so by definition he's still safe for being able to wink.
This goes back to 3PenguinsWithAGun and Kylljoy; the intention behind it.
