You can tell a lot about a person through there eyes. Pupils never lie. Some say the eyes are the windows to your soul. You can tell if there sad, worried, happy, mad or high. Eyes help with communication you can talk with your eyes.

Eyes are about 1 inch across and weigh about 0.25 ounce. The human eye can differentiate approximately 10 million different colors and blinks an average of 4,200,000 times a year. This means if you were given a nickel for every time you blinked you would make $210,000 annually. Eyes are made up of over 2 million working parts and are the fastest muscle in you body, hence, the phrase: “In the blink of an eye”.

The world’s most common eye color is brown (79% of the population). The rarest eye color is green (2% of the population). After brown, 8%-10% of the world has blue eyes, 5% has amber or hazel eyes. Even rarer, almost none at all have gray or red/violet eyes.
