Doctors were performing surgery on a man in Canada, and discovered his blood was not red, but dark green! Apparently, this is because of migraine medication which caused his blood to absorb sulfur as well as oxygen (apparently there's a term for it: sulfhaemoglobinaemia.) Also strange, the reason he was having surgery was not because of his green blood, but because he fell asleep sitting and was at risk of losing his legs altogether. Man, talk about a bad day for that guy. At least he is doing alright now.
