Eyes and AB+

Did you know the official color for the eye above is 'hazel'. Green seems more accurate. I've been trying to confirm that brown eyes are the most resilient to strong light, then blue eyes, then green eyes. Can't seem to find any facts to back this up. Possibly an urban legend?

My blood type is AB+. Type AB+ blood is considered the “universal recipient” because people with this type can receive any blood type. Unfortunately though, it is the only blood type where all other blood types are incompatible with this blood type. Only 4% of Americans are AB+, while 37% are O+.

And Did You Know:

Blood type is inherited, just like eye color.

Certain blood types are more common in certain countries. In China, over 99% of the population has Rh+ blood.

Different kinds of animals have different kinds of blood. Dogs have 4 blood types; cats have 11; cows have about 800. People have 8.

Some people think blood type tells about personality. Legend has it that Type A is calm and trustworthy; Type B is creative and excitable; Type AB is thoughtful and emotional; and Type O is a confident leader.

In Japan and Korea the idea of blood type as personality type is so popular that Japanese ask “What's your blood type?” about as often as Americans ask “What's your sign?”
