    How in the heck can it measure the oxygen in your blood stream by putting on the tip of your finger. That is crazy talk.
    This is how flat earthers think.

    “I don’t understand it so it must be fake.”
    No, that is how Creationists think. Flat Earthers are a myth, like the Loch Ness Monster.

    I suspect JH was kidding.

    Oximeters are easy enough to test yourself, anyway. Put one on, hold your breath, watch the numbers drop. Hyperventilate and watch them pop up to 100%

    Yes, they obviously work. It wouldn't be until later on when I would see it respond with a number below 95, and I'd be truly impressed. I never thought they were actually fake, but more that they worked via a lazy correlation. Again... how is this tiny little thing making with measuring something in the blood, from the outside. But then saw the lower number for the first time.

    I still had no idea how it worked and was too lazy to look it up. I literally needed a video to fall from the sky onto my lap to learn about it. I still think the tool is pretty darn impressive.

    I can measure the oxygen in your car's exhaust with a rock and a wire. There are crazier things in this world than are dreampt of in your philosophies, Horatio.

    blood color changes depending on oxygen level
    You can easily distinguish between blood from artery and blood from vein.
