Let me preface this by saying that I probably spent more time researching for this post, than I did studying for any biology test in high school.
When BC was filming his Jekyll skits for the 13 Days of Halloween videos, his team requested “things you’d find in a lab” for props on set. It got me thinking… how can things originally meant for the science lab be repurposed?
