In today's Chosun Ilbo. Gads, isn't superstition fun?

Survey Suggests Blood Type Affects Shower Behavior A survey has revealed that people act and think differently during a shower according to their blood type and age. Dove, a manufacturer of cleansing goods, conducted a survey of 9,927 visitors to its website on their shower behavior.

Some 35 percent of blood type As said they have cried during a shower, while 55 percent of blood type Os said they think of the opposite gender. Of those who said they appreciate their body during a shower, 33 percent were blood type B, confirming the common belief that those with blood type B are vain. Among age groups, 20 percent of 30-something people responded they relieve their stress through a shower.

Some 65 percent of blood type As said they have never cried during a shower, while 45 percent of blood type Os said they do not think of the opposite gender. Of those who said they appreciate their body during a shower, 67 percent were not blood type B, disproving the common belief that those with blood type B are vain. Among age groups, 80 percent of 30-something people responded they remain equally stressed or become more stressed through a shower.

How many blood types are there? Eight? I did a little search and saw mention of 30 "blood-group systems." No idea what that means. Is it more, or less complicated than the 12 signs/creatures for months or years?

Also, Jews and Asians have a higher incidence of type B. Nuff said.

A survey shows that 60% of anything relates to something, and that, shockingly, 30% is left over to have some relation to an unspecified amount of stuff, with 10% left to be arbitrarily attributed or correlated to something else. All results are assumed to be causational rather than coincidental.

Indeed nothing allows for indisputable conclusions like an internet survey on a soap website.

Well, I'm AB negative and I can absolutely tell you that THAT survey is spot-on! The day I installed my pulsating shower massage I definitely DID cry in the shower, and I MOST DEFINITELY appreciated my ummmmm body......

There are multiple blood group systems that all apply to your RBC's. The only two that matter in regard to immune rejection are the ABO and RH systems. The other 28 or so supposidly don't factor in.

This is almost as nutty as FAN DEATH.

A good point. Also, I'd say most people (I'd guess maybe as high as 70 or even 80% ?) consider themselves above average somehow, in intelligence or whatever.
