GREEN-BLOODED MAN

Medical staff at a hospital in Vancouver were stunned recently when a patient started spilling green blood.

According to Sky News:
Tests showed the 42-year-old man's red blood cells had been absorbing sulphur, causing the strange colouring.

The patient, a Canadian, had developed "compartment syndrome" in both lower legs after falling asleep in a sitting position.

It is caused by restricted blood flow.

The report says the patient - who had been taking migraine medication, which caused the sulphur - recovered well.:
Didn't Spock have green blood?

This guy needs to be around at the next St. Patrick's Day celebration. Or, maybe he's just an avid Notre Dame fan. Ya know, "I bleed green."
