Blood is not blue

Just another PSA because I have seen people saying this a few times in the last few days

Blood is never blue ...it does not "hit oxygen" and turn red. This is a myth and really anyone who has ever had a blood test should realize this. 

/Rant oh and ps this is talking about healthy people. I dont know if there is any far off medical thing that can turn blood blue. But if that is real it is rare and I am not talking about that.

My high school anatomy teacher actually told us blood is blue. My mom, who taught an anatomy class at the time, about had a stroke.
