Justify My Zzzz

Is it wrong to kill a man just because his cell phone rings three times disturbing your sleep on the train ride in to work? And does anybody know how to get blood out of cotton?

I've heard those Clorox pens will get out just about anything...

Ultra Toast Mosha God said...

Firstly: no.

Secondly: Vanish. Or just burn it. That destroys most evidence...

Dale said...

Firstly, Gizmo I'm going to try that next time as it turns out I don't need to worry now.

Secondly and thirdly, I thank you for the support Ultra God. I burned the spattered clothes and with relief remembered that toady it's Totally Nude Tuesday at work.

You both posted about weird dreams last night. Weird.

Hydrogen peroxide and cold water are a homicidal maniac's best friends.

I have two kids with genetic predispositions to horrific bloody noses (something about capillaries and thin tissue). I can tell you that if you soak a blood soaked item of clothing in a solution of Biz overnight (always cold water), it will be sparkling clean. I usually soak and then run through the washer. It has never failed me. Even white cotton.

Holly said...

Chelene is right: cold water, not hot. Don't use hot water to treat blood stains; the heat in the water effectively cooks the proteins in the blood, guaranteeing that you will have that stain for as long as the fabric it's on exists.

Supposedly scrubbing the stain with salt can help too.

You learn things like this when you're at risk for bleeding on your clothes, sheets, pajamas etc once a month.

Since you asked, I thought you'd want to know.

justacoolcat said...

What? You don't have a wood chipper, a vat of acid, or incriminating evidence on someone that owns a funeral home?

Dale said...

Chelene, if I'm ever in trouble I'm calling you!! Ooooo, you make killin' fun.

I love the background info Holly! So making someone's blood boil is a bad thing then. Especially if it's near your good whites? Brilliant.

Of course I have all that stuff Coolcat but none of it is in pocket pal sizes suitable for transit. Siwwy wabbit.

Train talkers deserve to be killed.

mellowlee said...

Yikes! People just know waaaay too much about getting rid of evidence :) Makes me want to watch Shallow Grave again. The only think that would piss me off enough to do some damager would be if they lit up a cigarette in front of me. I had heard of peroxide and cold water, but the salt is new to me. See you do learn something new every day!

mellowlee said...

Oh my gawd. I just read my post and saw how many type o's there are :( I'm going back to bed!

You sleep on the train!?

Old Lady said...

put dawn dish detergent on and rub in, then squeeze lemon juice and let it set. Repeat as needed, this would be for colors, otherwise if white, get a bleach pen.

Dale said...

Andi for conductor!

That was a great film Lee, loved it. I lurn something new at least every other day.

When I'm not reading, complaining or listening to music, I sleep winter.

Dale said...

I'm glad the Internet is here. A wealth of wisdom. Thank you for weighing in Old Lady.

GrizzBabe said...

Sure, you can wash out the blood but remember, luminol sees everything!

Dale said...

Luminol! I forgot about that Grizzbabe. Why does anyone bother with the crime anymore?

Mob said...

Great post and comments.

X. Dell said...

(1) You can't get blood out of cotton completely. Police can trace microscopic blood particles upon flouroscopinc analysis.

(2) I don't know if the cell phone defense has been successfully done in Ontario. You'd have to check your province's lawbooks for legal precedence.

Dale said...

I appreciate a well placed quote Mob and there you go, Mob's your uncle. Fascinating, this is one of those things you just sort of put out there not expecting a response and turns out, all your blog friends have criminal masterminds.

X. Dell, your analysis (don't read that fast) is spot on if I may be so bold. I'm going to do a bit more research before I tell it to the judge.

I would have taken that cell phone and punched him in the throat with it over and over till his body slumped over and slid under his seat, then next exit toss the phone and the body out. Take a stand, and announce to the rest of the riders, "What? Anyone else want to take a call?"

I think that would have solved the problem..

But that is just me, and I have anger management problems.

Dale said...

I like your clear (upper) cut approach to this issue. At this time I would like to tell you that if I ever piss you off, I am willing to write a large cheque to avoid your wrath.

Bre said...

Perozide on a cotton ball gets blood out... or if it's a large stain just pour the peroxide on, rinse in cold water, then spray on some sort of stain remover before you wash it.

I am a stain removing queen myself... Though if you do murder someone, I know nothing.

Shroom-Monkey said...

You could never piss me off Dale... well not today anyways..

I will send you the info for the check, just in case...

blog Portland said...

I think killing him may be a tad much. Might I suggest a well-placed sneeze on the back of his neck?

Dale said...

I'm going to write a book, Several Ways Bloggers Get Out The Blood. You're in it Bre!

So glad to hear that Shroom but yeah, gimme the address.

Hi BP, I think your suggestion is a fine one. I'm going to practice this tomorrow morning. Pepper anyone?

Dale said...

Uh oh, Shamundson, I missed your comment way up there somehow and found it in my Comments Moderation page which I clicked on accidentatlly....I'm heading for Costco and will be buying one skid of BIZ and will keep you posted if anything goes awry.
