LOL

I think I'll just make something up. My dad's O something, and my mom's AB something, I think... LOL So I could by ANYTHING.


message 19: by Silver (new)

Silver I'm not even going to try it, since I don't know my blood type...


message 20: by Nightshade, I feel like a bad mod. :( (new)

Nightshade | 1289 comments Mod
WAIT!!!! LUNA!!!! So your dad is O, and your mom is AB... I just learned about blood types!

O- ii
AB- I(A)I(B)

Luna, you could either be A or B blood, genetically!


message 21: by Lunabell , Its creepy how this group is called "Never Dying". (new)

Lunabell  (lunabell) | 1405 comments Mod
Cool!!!

Tell me stuff about blood types!!! I like listening to info. *sits down in comfy chair* *waits for Nightshade to talk about blood types* *yawns, still waiting*

Ok, here it comes...

What blood type you have depends on what blood type your parents have, actually. It also depends on whether they're carrying dominant or recessive alleles (alleles are different forms of traits). Have you learned Punnett squares yet??? If you have, good. If you haven't, crud. This complicates things.

Anyways, dominant alleles are the ones that show up in your appearance. Recessive alleles are the ones that are hidden. Though the weird thing is, if you have TWO recessive alleles, it shows up. If you have one dominant and one recessive, the dominant one shows up.

For example, eye color (a simplified version). Brown is the dominant color, and blue is the recessive color. Let's say that little Billy's mom had brown eyes, and his dad had blue eyes. The dominant color (brown) will be represented as B, and the recessive (blue) as b. So Billy could get...

BB- mom, bb- dad
Since the B's and b's are combined, he could have either Bb (brown) or... actually, that's it.

Bb-mom, bb- dad
If this was it, and his mom had one dominant and one recessive, the story would be different. Billy could have Bb (brown) or bb (blue), because he could get the two recessive traits from his mom and dad.

So, for blood types...
O type- ii (alleles- both recessive)
AB type- I(A)I(B) (this is called codominance, when two dominant thingys are in)
A type- I(A)i (one dominant, one recessive) or I(A)I(A) (2 A dominant)
B type- I(B)i (one dominant, one recessive) or I(B)I(B) (2 B dominant)

So, Luna, if your dad is O, he would have ii. If your mom is AB, she would have I(A)I(B). So you could get...

I(A)i- A type blood
or...
I(B)i- B type blood

I know it's confusing. You can look up Punnett squares...


message 24: by jeeves... (new)

jeeves... | 2444 comments Mod
oh, i hate punnet squares... they remind me of numberz, which reminds me of math... >.<


message 25: by Nightshade, I feel like a bad mod. :( (new)

Nightshade | 1289 comments Mod
I LOVE MATH! But I don't like Punnett squares. Especially the sixteen-square ones.


message 26: by Emily (new)

Emily (emilyamazingxx) | 555 comments Punnett Squares can go die...And sorry, I don't know my blood type nor do i plan on doing math at this time at night lol


message 27: by Lunabell , Its creepy how this group is called "Never Dying". (new)

Lunabell  (lunabell) | 1405 comments Mod
LOL

GAH! I don't know what Punnett squares are!!!


message 28: by jeeves... (new)

jeeves... | 2444 comments Mod
i didn't learn about them till biology, so... i hate them anyway...


message 29: by Emily (new)

Emily (emilyamazingxx) | 555 comments i learned them in 7th grade and now again in biology after our mid-terms


message 30: by jeeves... (new)

jeeves... | 2444 comments Mod
i had them before mid-termz... glad they're done, ergh.... at leeast, they are for now, but they'll probly be back... everything i post on becomes a topic train-wreck... i don't think topic's like me :\


message 31: by Emily (last edited Jan 25, 2009 09:55PM) (new)

Emily (emilyamazingxx) | 555 comments lol i'm sure topics love you..and besides this isn't becoming a train-wreck, this is very important to the survey :)

LUNA! GO GOOGLE PUNNETT SQUARES! NOW!

But in case the internet is too confusing, like it usually is... Punnett squares are these squares (duhhh) that show the possible combinations of two traits, from the parents of whatever human or something. Sooo.... remember about the B and b? Dominant and recessive? It would look something like this...


___B____b___
b |__Bb_|_bb__|
b |__Bb_|_bb__|

Agh it's all weird. But you get the idea.

Jenn hey kayla, how does this survey help with the science fair project????

@_@

Ya.... I was wondering the same thing... but whatevs. XD

I ♥ science but I hate math... kinda stinks that they go hand in hand :(


message 46: by Kayla (new)

Kayla (knation5) | 3 comments Some scientists believe there is a connection between your blood type and your personality traits. We are trying to see if that is true.

Sara (weisthis) | 2985 comments Mod
Intresting!


message 48: by Silver (new)

Silver Okay, Nightshade, that part about the blue/brown eyes totally contradicts the end of my 7th grade science..........


message 49: by Bree (new)

Bree (breej6434) You'll have to share her results with us when she's done


message 50: by Nightshade, I feel like a bad mod. :( (new)

Nightshade | 1289 comments Mod
What happened at the end of your 7th grade science??? Because I know I'm right, unless I accidentally made a typo.
