Creating a Proper Dexter Kill Room

Dexter kill rooms require plastic. Lots of it.

When it comes to making the perfect “kill room”, Dexter doesn’t settle for sub-par materials. The perfect kill room consists of durable plastic wrap to cover every crevice of the room. He has to catch all the blood, prints and other forensic evidence from his kill.

Ordinary plastic wrap couldn’t withstand all that Dexter puts it through. From the intense room preparation to the gruesome murders, Dexter cannot risk having tears in the wrap or running out before covering the entire room and body.

Now we’re not suggesting this is the plastic Dexter uses, but the 4 millimeter thick film is high-density and tear resistant: just what is needed to withstand the bloodiest of his murders. This plastic prevents leaks so absolutely no blood or other “residue” will get onto the floor or walls.

Plus Dexter never has to worry about running out because this giant roll is 400 feet long!  He can cover the entire room with extra to spare to secure down the bodies.

Just look at all that plastic.

Dexter doesn’t stop there. The preparation for the perfect kill room takes a lot of work but what comes after is even more important, the disposal of the bodies.

In order to dispose the bodies, Dexter relies on the durability of garbage bags. The trash bags must be large enough and strong enough to hold these bodies without breaking or falling apart. Strong enough to prevent leaks so not even the smallest amount of blood can escape.

At a bare minimum, those bags have to hold up to make it onto the boat, and then into the ocean.

Dexter must use the most dependable of bags, with excellent resistance to punctures and tearing. Jaguar Plastic’s industrial strength bags are very heavy duty – and perfect for carrying heavy loads!

With a 60 gallon capacity he can fit the largest of bodies and body parts inside for a quick and easy disposal.

Preparing for a murder is no easy task. Dexter must find the most durable of plastic wrap and garbage bags for a successful killing. With no room for error, one drop of blood out of place or limb showing through the trash bag will ruin everything!

There are many ways to decorate your wall with toilet paper rolls. Flatten the roll and cut into bands. Pop them open a bit so you have a flower pedal shape.

The more bands you use the larger your flower will be. Or, you can glue them together in any pattern you’d like and hang them to your wall.

The Snacks That Define Us

So, I wanted to write a blog about the funny mugs that my office co-workers drank from during the day, so that I could demonstrate the uniqueness that is us, the ReStockIt employees. You’ve all seen the Halloween parties and Masquerade parties we like to throw, so you know we’re a fun-loving bunch. Tragically, we don’t extend that to our coffee mugs.

Mugs

So I’ll just talk about the mugs we DO use, and break room ideas! We have a pretty cool break room, for the most part. We have an air hockey table, and TV, along with our puzzle table-it’s a big hit with IT- and we never want for coffee. What would be really awesome would be a snack machine. It wouldn’t necessarily have to have fun, yummy snack goodies that we all know are terrible for us.

snack-vending-machine

There are such things as vending machines that sell fruit, organic chips and other snacks, and that is something that I would love to have in our break room at work! During our once-monthly birthday/anniversary celebrations, we try to have only healthy food to snack on, like yogurt, granola, a veggie tray, and whole grain chips and salsa. Wow, I just made myself really hungry. What can you do to have smart eating choices in your break room?

The Incredible Can of Canned Air

Canned air has become an office staple for cleaning your keyboard, dusting your CPU tower, and blowing all the dust bunnies off your desk. You’d be hard-pressed to find an IT department that doesn’t have a case or two lying around, and if they tell you they don’t have any then they’re lying to you. They just don’t want to give up the goods.

OurHero

I was spraying down my keyboard the other day (bagel Friday-don’t judge) and I thought about what other jobs canned air is used for. I use it at home to clean blinds, fans, and spray off the top of my kitchen cabinets and a co-worker uses them to dust her silk plants, but what else are they good for? A quick internet search came up with a plethora of ideas, from the brilliant to the hilarious.

  1. Blow dust off of delicate models such as cars, boats, and doll houses. Have you ever tried to Pledge a miniature china hutch?
  2. Blowing out the dust bunnies behind the two ton entertainment center that you will never move
  3. Spraying the crumbs your child left behind in the backseat of your car/van/SUV
  4. Freezing gum on a carpet for easy removal. I wonder if that works with hair…
  5. If you cut hair for a living, it works to blow hair off your clients neck better than a hairdryer. Just don’t give them freezer burn.
  6. Giving a boost to your straw-blow gun during a game of Office Domination. That is so not cheating…
  7. Blowing spiders out of the side-view mirrors on your car. The little suckers always seem to hide in there.
  8. Airing out your cubicle during a…methane…leak. Yeah.
  9. You know how your cat tends to sit on the keyboard when you’re trying to work? One quick burst is painless. Scary, but painless.
  10. Saving the Eiffel Tower from an evil sock monkey

The New Kid

THe new kid

Once upon a time, in an office much like your own, there was a new kid in town. At first, he didn’t realize there was something different that set him apart from the others, but they knew. Where they were metal and box-like, with a white glossy sheen, he was round and smoke-colored. When towels were pulled from them, they came out in a clump, and sometimes even ripped!

The new kid, well, his towels came out smooth and they never ripped, except where they were supposed to. Because of that, his friends in the office didn’t have to touch anything but the towels, so he felt great pride in guarding them against those silly human sicknesses. The boxes watched from their positions on the wall and fumed. Who did this new kid think he was? They, the boxes, ruled this office!

The old kids

The boxes conspired to trip up the new kid, who was happily hanging on the wall by the kitchen sink, doing his job. They whispered along the box-network after the office shut down for the night, but to no avail-there was nothing they could do to trip up the new dispenser; he was untrippable! Even the old boxes grew to admire how easy it was to change out his towels, and the ease in which his towels flowed. Not to mention that he needed his towels replaced a lot less than they did.

Then the day came when the boxes realized they were being replaced with more new kids. At first, there was panic, then the realization dawned that they could take it easy now, and relax. The new kid and his new friends would take care of the humans in the office, and much better than they could. They were happy to hand over the keys to the new kids, and live out the remainder of their lives in a storage room, retired.

The end.
