    Ya sound like a fast talking used car salesman or street hustler, ("Ya got change for a $100 bill, pal?" and I walk away without the $100 plus I'm down $50.) I can understand you and follow because I AM from the big city. But it just sounds reeedickUless. Just speak at a normal human speed. Not like you have to pee
    You didn't explain why some people ARE JUST BORN WITH 'EM! HELLO! I am a natural strawberry blond and I've had dark circles under my eyes since before I started kindergarten! I guess it was all those nights spent walking the floor because of a sick hampster.
    Also, why does every native Indian (from India) look like they're actually required to sleep on a bed of nails? HUGE, BLACK circles under their eyes yet many have fairly dark brown skin color.
    thx, TVG

    Welp, one of my friends is seriously screwed as he goes days without sleep quite often. In fact, I'm surprised he isn't dead as I'm no scientist but I'm pretty sure constantly not going to sleep is extremely bad for your health.

    I also have dark circles under my eyes, but:
    Ummm.... the blue veins on your wrist are actually blue... Where the blood travels around you body, giving off the oxygen collected from the lungs, it runs through the capillaries (I think that is how you spell it) and into your veins. The blood is then deoxygenated (Sorry about spelling) and travels through your veins back to the heart, then to the lungs and back again.. (I could go into more detail but I don't want to bore you :D) Sorry if you said this, I'm 11 years old, and just wanted to seem smart XD
    Good day everyone!!

    Alcohol in particular dehydrates the body and in time causes the appearance of dark circles.
