Hey guys, I keep reading a lot of misconceptions about eye color, blood type, etc. I'm currently studying for my Genetics final tomorrow (last final before I graduate college...ugh), but if you guys reply to this, I'd love to explain it all Friday or so after I sober up from celebrating Thursday. It was material on the last test, but I don't want to look it all up and take up brain space meant for material for this exam.

I'll try, but I'm running off my memory of year 12 human bio.
Eye colour is a polygenic trait, meaning that more than one gene effects your eye colour. Something like 8, I think it was. This is a simplification, but at each loci (Location of the gene) you can have two genes for darker eyes, two genes for lighter eyes or one gene for each. If you had two genes for lighter eyes at each one, you'd end up with nice blue eyes, and since you don't have the genes for darker eyes you can't pass them on. Ergo, if your partner also has light blue eyes, your kid can't have dark brown eyes because neither of you have the genes to pass on.
Jesus I feel like I'm reading simple English wikipedia. Hopefully I'm getting the idea across without either sounding like a dumbass or using too much jargon.

I posted a picture above that explains how blue eyes parents can have a brown eyed kid.

Here is a picture that will explain it in basic form. I'll go into more detail later. Basically if your parents each have one of the genes that are broken, their eye cannot create pigment and is blue, if they have opposite types of mutations, then they can have a child who can have normal brown eyes.

Could it have been possible it was a random mutation?

Yeah, my Bio teacher was telling me that they used to do blood test's on students parents to predict what their child's blood type would be.

So of course when the students see their blood type wasn't possible with the parents, problems arose..

That happened in one of my classes a few years ago and the girl started to break down in the middle of the class. Turns out she already knew she was adopted and was just messing with all of us.

Recessive genes, ************   
I have blue/yellow eyes while my parents only have brown or green. My grandfather had the same eyes as me and my brother though, making our eyes recessive traits
