Several things to point out with SCP-173 and blinking.

1. Many people simply cannot or have a very hard time blinking one eye at a time, even for a short period in normal circumstances.
2. This is a high intensity situation, this thing can kill you in the blink of an eye. Adrenaline will be very high and mistakes are common. As well as people forgetting very simple things.
3. I did read an expanded fiction that 173 might have a mimetic influence that makes one eye blinking more harder, or words to that effect.

What many people who claim "Just blink one eye, problem solved" forget is that the situation they are in is not a "normal" situation. Just averting you gaze for a second will cost you, and if you can blink one eye at a time how long could you keep that up for? Try it and you will find it to be taxing and require alot of concentration and effort to maintain for an extended period.

Ahem, I might point out that 173 supposedly 'making your death more painful' due to blinking with one eye is indeed not canon to the article itself.

It breaks all established rules and isn't even mentioned anywhere. I find it beyond stupid.

And for the 173 death-choke, as I mentioned, it should be a randomly occurring death sequence instead of the neck snap, it should wrap your arms around your neck and you'll be locked toward its head. Your vision will begin to blur, and the screen will fade out to black.
It slep time bunner.

And then we hear the neck crunch sound.

No, I think he does mean chocking, he's going to beat the redacted out of you with a wheel support
1. A block or wedge placed under something else, such as a wheel, to keep it from moving.
