Do you know your blood type?

I was just thinking about this. I do not know what my blood type is. Is that normal for a person to not know their blood type? I guess I figure that if I ever needed an emergency transfusion, I would probably be unconscious and unable to tell the doctors and/or the doctors would test my blood anyway. So I guess I figure knowing my blood type doesn't really matter.

No clue to be honest.

Re: Do you know your blood type?

In Japan, everyone knows their blood type. When you see a celebrity's vital statistics, for instance, blood type is always included.

Here are random pages for singers I follow and blood type is listed on both pages:
http://www.generasia.com/wiki/Kuraki_Mai
http://helloproject.wikia.com/wiki/Wada_Ayaka

As for me, my doctor told me mine after a blood test, so that's how I know (A+).

Re: Do you know your blood type?

We pricked our fingers and tested for blood type in junior high science class. A+.
The Spider-Man clone story always reminds me of it.

Re: Do you know your blood type?

I am AB+, which is fairly rare. On the positive side (see what I did there), I am a universal recipient

I don't know. Every time I see it I end up forgetting.

Re: Do you know your blood type?

A+ for me. I tried to donate on Friday, but my iron levels were too low, so I have to wait until next weekend. They told me that sometimes women have a hard time donating due to low iron levels. Mine was at a 36% - when I need to be 38% or higher. This was the first time this has happened to me as a long-time donor. I was bummed. Just have to stock up on the spinach this week!!

Re: Do you know your blood type?

Some kind of O, from back when I donated regularly. I used to be able to do it at work, then switched jobs and life got busier.

Re: Do you know your blood type?

I have no idea.

This thread has me thinking I should find out.

I predict that this thread will be bumped in a couple of years, I'll see it and I still won't know.

I find it disturbing that our local supermarket needs to know our blood types.
