Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

How many of you were taught in elementary school/secondary school that human blood is blue when it is running through your veins underneath the surface of your skin?

-Az

A:

Dear Dr. Az,

Well, I learned that blood is blue when it's de-oxygenated and heading back to your heart. It hurts to be disabused of that notion.

-Inverse Insomniac

A:

Dear Az,

I don't remember where, but I definitely did learn that. So probably in elementary school or middle school.

-El-ahrairah

A:

Dear Az,

Yeah, I was definitely either taught this or believed it for a long time. 

Keep it real,

Count me in. 

~ Dragon Lady

A:

Dear Az

Oh yeah, and that everybody in Columbus's day thought the world was flat.*

-Humble Master

*That myth can be traced back to an extremely popular biography of Columbus written by Washington Irving

A:

Dear Doctor,

Yep, definitely learned that at some point.

-Tally M.

A:

Dear Az,

I didn't realize that wasn't true until just now...

-guppy of doom, who really trusted her elementary school teachers

A:

Dear Az,

I'm pretty sure I didn't learn that that wasn't true until I was an adult.

-yayfulness

A:

Dear Az,

Yup. 

Suerte,
