    Notice how red blood cells seem to stack when they settle out. Not sure if anyone knows the mechanism?

    Oooooooooo! A lovely picture, Jim, but it made my flesh creep. I’ve had two blood tests and two cannulas inserted in the last five days, so I feel for the ruptured venules. My right arm still has brown ecchymosis (look it up) from the rupturing of some of my own venules. Anyway, I’m sure you have had more experience than I of modern medical attention just lately. Keep smiling.
