I did put blood group, then changed it to eye colour, as I don't see how that can be measured as quantifiable data. :S

 Blood groups are specific categories, so it is discontinuous, if you plotted a graph of results and got a bell-shaped curve, it would be continuous, but there isn't a wide range of blood groups, you fit into a category :)
