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***

If you spend enough time in bed, it molds to you, covers all your weaknesses and warms you from your fears. Buried in blankets you can hide away from thoughts filled with germs making the mind sick. You can hear the little voices that ache through your body and makes your squirm with un content.
“I think this song’s one of the all-time greats. To be honest, when we first started doing the show, I didn’t know Zooey’s band at all.

#4. Sawing Off Rhino Horns to Prevent People from Sawing Off Rhino Horns
A rhino horn is basically a fingernail that evolved into a murder weapon and has no more curative properties than the filthy bits under your own nails, but you can still get $100,000 a kilo for ground-up rhino horn in Vietnam. … Sadly for the rhino, dehorning is usually carried out by ill-informed criminal dickwads with stubby fingers made nearly useless by decades of severe inbreeding, and thus the “surgery” is almost always fatal. So rangers came up with a novel solution to stop dehorning: dehorning.
That wasn’t a typo.

So now, Bruce, as you enter, tell yourself he’s just a man. Like you. Tell yourself he has flesh that can be ripped, bones that can be shattered. That he needs to breath, to sleep, to eat.
Prove it to yourself.
Stare back at him, into those damn eyes. Stare into them until he flinches.
Until you see them work like human eyes. Until you see the pupils change. It happens all of a sudden, just a tiny shift, but there it is. You stare back and you see it. The smallest flicker in the pupils, but still. And you say to yourself, see? Beneath it all he’s just what you thought he was.
And ignore the fact that what you saw those tiny pupils do was expand. Expand for you after you stared back long enough. Ignore the fact that what you saw those black points expand with…
