What are these marks on the back of my legs??

Ok I have no idea how long these have been here since I don't look at the back of my legs often and no idea how they got here...they are about one inch above the back of my knees.
Pics aren't that great, marks are darker and more defined than pics show. They are on both legs in pretty much same exact spot.
I am assuming its popped blood vessels, or something like that, but I've never had this happen before anywhere on my body so I have NO idea how I got them. Has anyone had this happen to them? Are they permanent? How could I have gotten them and how can I get rid of them?

Thanks! edit: sorry the pics are so big...I tried resizing but photobucket is being weird for me.

It's hard to say from those pictures.

They could be ruptured capillaries, which is not difficult to do. Could be from something as simple as using an exercise machine in which a pad is placed behind your knee. The fact that you have the same pattern on both legs, indicates that that it was probably just that, or from some other type of force that was applied behind your knees. If they are ruptured capillaries, the marks should disappear in a few days at the most.

And yes, I have it happen to me every week.

Ok thanks! Yeah I took about a dozen pics and those were the best that came out.

I was thinking about it, maybe it was from one of the chairs I sit on in class? I don't know if that would be enough force though, I don't think I push my legs up against the chairs that hard.

Well thats good to know they'll go away! Thanks again!
