Today, I found out my blood type is B. My parents are type A and type O. It's not genetically possible to be blood type B if your parents are A and O. This means I am either an adoptee, a mutant, or an illegitimate child. FML

it's like bioshock. genetic modifications are fun! :)

lol gstone5 you say ops retarded when you spell parent Paret ^.^

um, ok, first off, you must not have payed attention during biology. A and B are both dominant, so it is impossible to have Ab blood and be and A blood type. It would make you AB type. duh. Also, O is recessive, so if there was a B with the O, the blood type would be B. Check your facts before posting next time

332, ever heard of a typo?

OP I hope for your sakes and for the rest of mankind that you don't become a geneticist

331, the world of genetics goes far beyond a Punnet square.

hey 331, you're an idiot. The phenotype A can either be expressed through genotypes AA or AO. The phenotype O can only be expressed through genotype OO. A and B both cause specific markers on blood cells. O does not. Therefore, AO only has A receptors and AA only has A receptors, making the blood type A. Same with B. The only way to get no receptors, blood type O, is to have the genotype OO. Now that that's explained... AA x OO yields: 100% chance of blood type A (AO, AO, AO, and AO) AO x OO yields: 50% chance of blood type O (OO, OO) 50% chance of blood type A (AO, AO) OP, you better hope your mother has a Bombay Phentoype, otherwise there's something your parents aren't telling you.

Actually you can be their child; epigenetic's plays a huge role. With blood types you have the up front genes Ia, Ib and i leading to the old type A, type B. type AB, and type O but before these proteins are made your body makes cells with organelles to make those proteins, if those are both recessive then no matter what they are type O even, if their genetically coded for Ib,Ib or homozygous type B. so if your dad was heterozygous for type A (Ia,i) you mom could hold the genes for Ib,Ib or Ib,I either way leading to a 50/50 for type B blood or type A. This is known as the Bombay phenotype; you're not weird, you're not a Freak, and you're not illegitimate. :) I was in AP Bio; I got a five. Hopefully this helps.

No well acually it's possible that the ops dad maybe his mom and dad where O and B or the moms was A and B and you just go it from ur ansestors

Obviously you because type O is a recessive gene which means you can't be type Ob

omg my bio teacher told us a story about something like this im so sorry dude.

First i think. anyway, look at fawkes. he is a mutant but he still has an awesome level OVER 9000!

awwwww. Thats a hard way to find out. Unless they look like you...

WHOOPS!!!! Your parents have some SERIOUS explaining to do!!!!

It's not possible. His parent would be BO not OB. O is always just O, but O can come after A or B. Unless one of his parents is AB or BO, it's not posible. The possible genotypes for A type blood are AA and AO. O is just OO. Therefore, if one of your parents really has O blood, they're OO. If your other parent really is type A, then they're either AA or AO. That means it IS impossible to have type B blood. Ask your O parent whether they're really O or if they're BO.

lol. blood type BO positive... that would suck >_>

you're being stupid stop that

WHOOPS!!!! Your parents have some SERIOUS explaining to do!!!!

Actually, look up "Bombay Phenotype," it's possible.

Is it actually that hard to spell something right?
