Exactly the kind of thing that makes up a modern mith. The experiments were done by a doctor something in 1907 and never repeated. Please don't get me mad if i say that is totally ignore that.

you should post your Fathers name on here... so that i'll know to never go to him if I get sick!
ok... ok!.. i was kidding! don't post your dad's name on the internet... that wouldn't be safe for you or your father..
Exactly this is the answer, it doesnt turn Smurf blue it just gets a more purplish tint to it than fully oxygenated bright red arterial blood. So yes in a way venous blood is blue-er than arterial blood. Note that you'll need to draw arterial blood before you can appreciate this difference and most samples drawn are of course venous, so if you've just taken routine venous samples and not done series of arterial blood gas measurements you wont have seen the colour difference.
can you give me a a proper proof.
even i agree with you but no one believes.
i need a good proof.
half of links on net say its blue half say its dark red.
thats the exact explanation
another good answer
Wow, I can't believe how many people believe blood is blue.
Blood is RED. Arterial blood is bright red. Venous blood is dark red. The color of blood is derived from its hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is red, either oxygenated or deoxygenated.
Veins are sometimes depicted in blue color in anatomy diagrams to make it easy to pick them out from the arteries. This often leads to the erroneous conclusion that venous blood is blue. Not true.
Another reason people think doxygenated or venous blood is blue is that veins can sometimes appear blue under the skin. Normal veins are actually mostly white or cream in color. The reason that veins observed through the skin and underlying soft tissue sometimes appear blue is that the skin and tissues preferentially absorb red light and mostly blue light is reflected back from the vein. Black lesions deep under the skin also will appear blue for the same reason, hence the term “Blue Nevus” for a mole that is located deep in the skin. Is the lightbulb inside of your brake light on your car red? Probably not, it's white, it just has a red lens (filter) over it. What you’re actually seeing is the surface of the vein and not the blood inside. The walls of veins are opaque, you cannot see through the wall and therefore you cannot see the blood inside of them. Capillaries are thin enough to see through. Hold your hand up and shine a flashlight through it from the other side and you will see red. That is capillary blood you are observing. It's red folks. If you see blue when you do this, your a crustacean.
