IMFW: Signed In Blood

Exciting news recently about a new test to identify people's blood groups, which was allegedly inspired by Voldemort's evil self-writing diary in the Harry Potter books. When a blood sample is applied to the paper, it actually spells out the person's ABO and Rhesus blood groups, the idea being that this is far more user-friendly and should reduce misinterpretations of blood group compared to the existing tests.

Warning: side effects may include possession by the Dark Lord.


  1. That's amazing and I am gutted that I'll (hopefully) never see one.
    It's almost worth putting myself in an emergency triage situation for it, but not quite.

    1. I know, it's amazing! You never know, perhaps one day they will hand these out like candy. Or something :P
