Lembas Bread (Lord of the Rings “authentic” Elvish bread)
2 ½ cups of flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
½ cup of butter
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon honey
2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla
Preheat oven to 425F. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix with a well till fine granules (easiest way is with an electric mixer). Then add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly.
Finally add the cream, honey, and vanilla and stir them in with a fork until a nice, thick dough forms.
Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness. Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.Criss-cross each square from corner-to-corner with a knife, lightly (not cutting through the dough).
Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.
***Let cool completely before eating, this bread tastes better room temperature and dry. Also for more flavor you can add more cinnamon or other spices***
as someone who has baked these A LOT

Fuck yes. Now the real question is… Will they fill my stomach in one bite?
"No, I wouldn’t date bisexuals."
"There’s nothing wrong with bisexuals…it’s just…"
"I’m just afraid of the competition. They’re greedy. "
Glassware can get pretty expensive especially if you’re in college and always getting sht faced and breaking your glasses. Start just using your empty beer bottles and turning them into your new glasses. Look dope, easy to make and cheap! Follow these 5 easy steps.
Step 1 – Grab a beer bottle preferably with thick glass such as corona bottles. Tie a string just above the label on the empty bottle
Step 2 – Keep the string tied and soak it in lighter fluid.
Step 3 – Put the string back on the bottle and hold it horizontally. Light the sting rotating the bottle so the flame spreads. You should hear the bottle crack slightly in about 10 seconds.
Step 4 – After you hear the crack, pour cold water on the string and the top of the bottle will fall off.
Step 5 – Now grab sandpaper and sand the edges of the bottle till it is smooth.

Dr. Krantz and Clyde mounted at the Smithsonian. Still my favorite thing ever.
Before Krantz died, he said to Smithsonian anthropologist David Hunt, “I’ve been a teacher all my life and I think I might as well be a teacher after I’m dead, so why don’t I just give you my body.” When Hunt agreed, Krantz added, “But there’s one catch: You have to keep my dogs with me.”

or, how Disney completely missed the mark in their latest adaptation (such as it is).
Disney’s Frozen (set to premiere Nov 2013) has all of the shiny trimmings of a surefire Disney hit—based off a faerie tale, featuring a plucky heroine and an antagonist with complex motivations and a tie to the protagonist, complete with attractive male and hilarious (though probably silent) animal sidekick(s). It’s the same formula Disney’s been using for years, with better-than-moderate success—look at Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, or (more recently) Tangled. Take a faerie tale, make it less gruesome than the original (seriously, I’m not even gonna touch the original version of Rapunzel; it gave me nightmares as a kid), box it up with an award-bait song (Tale as Old as Time, A Dream is a Wish, and At Last I See the Light, respectively), make millions, repeat.
My problem with Frozen is not that it’s a formula. My problem is not even that it’s an adaptation; no, my problem stems from the eensy little issue of Disney having the balls to bastardize the source material and then sell it as an “adaptation” of the amazing, kick-butt, all-girl (mostly) faerie tale of The Snow Queen.
More below the cut, because the damage must be seen to be believed. It gets long. Sorry.
pretty much my feelings exactly
