Do you guys think the blue veins are visible on my hands? I see them sometimes depends on the lightning but sometimes not it is hard to capture it on pictures, I think here I captured it a bit. Do you agree do you see it? I think it can be seen a bit, but I see it better on my phone then on laptop, it is so interesting how different lightning or even sometimes only a different screen where I view my pictures can make some difference. Did you know that blue bloods were called blue bloods, because of the blue veins which were visible? Thats why I like the idea.

You, Mort, are not 'pale skinned'.

"Despite how it looks when we peer at our veins, we don't have any blue blood in our bodies; oxygen-rich blood is bright red, while oxygen-depleted blood is slightly darker color (but still red). Instead, it turns out that our veins look blue because our skin reflects more blue light."

But am I not ruddy? I think Im ruddy. Im probably not the fairest skin type there is, Im probably a darker teint but still "White". White can come in different teints, or sometimes as lighter or as bit darker. What do you think?

In this picture look at my cheeks. I think it depends also on the lightning sometimes I look more a beige or olive colour, sometimes Im pink though?

Am I pink here?
