The other day a friend was talking about the blue people of Kentucky and part of me was like uh huh, right…

but he said it was true and naturally I went home and am here to report to you dear readers. There is something called Methemoglobinemia a disorder where you have a higher than normal amount of methemoglobin in the blood.  One of the most famous families with this disorder were the Fugates or as they are often referred the “Blue Fugates” from Kentucky.  The crazy thing is that when treated with ascorbic acid and sodium bicarbonate it goes away.

Then I also read about Argyria which is the improper exposure to silver dust, silver compounds etc.  In extreme cases your skin will turn blue.

Then I thought about Michele Lamy and her blueish black fingers.  I really like her.
