So my blood...
So my brother got a microscope, it's one with a screen so you can take videos, pictures and share them. Of course one of the first things we look at is blood. We were surprised at how much of a difference there was when we compared a slide of his with a slide of mine. I thought maybe I have a way higher platelet count, and that maybe that could account for the weird looking slide, but my blood didn't have a problem pouring out of holes easier and for longer than my brothers, so I don't think it's due to platelets... But I'm no expert. Here's the pictures. By the way these are at 60x Zoom.

Brothers Blood.

I don't want to alarm you but I googled (I know I know not an MD and the interwebz doesn't grant degrees) blood samples and most of the hits looked like your brothers. Might want to get a doctors visit in.

RE: So my blood...
Yeah, I might do that. I'm wondering how my blood is getting oxygen to my brain properly if their all stuck together like that (if they do in fact look that way inside my veins).

It's not even like I picked a special place for this picture, I could take another one zoomed out and all you would be able to see are these strings of red blood cells with the occasional free floaters.

I've made a quick images search and it looks like your blood sample is coagulated... or you're about to die from a horrible alien blood infection

RE: So my blood...
Possibly, mine coagulated faster. But then it should have stopped bleeding faster too.

What model of microscope does your brother have?

RE: So my blood...
You need to use an anti coagulation solution on the samples and you should be able to get images where they aren't stuck together.

Behold the power of the force!

Did you stain it ? How do you know you're not looking at a clump of epithelial tissue in what you're saying is your blood ? Or clumping in agglutination ?
