CSI Wannabes: How To Analyze A Bloodstain Pattern

These days, I don’t have time to watch TV. I can’t even remember the last time I watched a television show aside from the Super Bowl. I am blessed to be able to spend my free time on this blog and on Twitter instead. However, back in 2007 and 2008 before Bit Rebels and before I was on Twitter, I was a huge CSI: Miami fan. I think I’ve seen almost every episode ever made of that show. To this day, it ranks up there with my all time favorites.

If you’ve ever seen any crime solving show like that, you know that analyzing blood is always a big part of the investigation. Of course, I’m sure in real life it isn’t as glamorous as they make it out to be on television, but regardless, it’s always fascinating. We’ve learned from those shows that blood really can’t be cleaned up, and it easily paints a picture of what happened at a crime scene. I’m sure being a full-time criminal these days is harder than it used to be since blood analysis has come so far.

When I saw this chart, created by Forensic Nursing, I immediately went into fantasy mode. There I am, a CSI (with a hot body just like they all do on CSI: Miami), and I’m analyzing blood to solve the case. It seems like this would be fun to do, like putting together a puzzle. Is that creepy? I hope you like this as much as I did.
