Shout out to all the religious kids who keep their beliefs to themselves in the middle of Science class.
Shout out also to the Atheists who don’t shit on everyone else’s beliefs because Science.
Shout out to everyone who can accept Science and Religion co-existing.

Well that was underwhelming.
you’re as irrelevant as “ueue” in the word “queue”
[walks around with an entire big mac in my mouth but never actually biting down] It’s a metaphor, see: you put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.
you took this from a fault in our stars augustus does the same thing only with a cigarette ok ok
i don’t know what you’re talking about this is an excerpt from my upcoming 100% original novel “the fart in our stalls”
It’s alive! Buried deep in the Siberian permafrost scientists found a ‘giant virus’ that has been asleep for 30,000 years. Named Pithovirus sibericum, it contains 500 genes and was revived in the lab. The researchers are now trying to assess if ancient viruses such as this one could pose a threat for humans. via Science Alert/fb

Millionaire bars – salted caramel chocolate shortbread bars
I love to bake cookies. From a taste perspective it’s hard to beat a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie. They’re everyone’s favorite but I enjoy going through the motions of creating something that takes a little bit more effort. Usually during the holidays I make Sue’s sugar cookies with buttercream frosting, but you’ve seen those here over and over again. Yesterday I decided a layered cookie bar was in order.
These are some of the best cookies to come out of my kitchen. They’re blissfully rich and sinfully good. The thin, flaky Maldon sea salt on the chocolate gives you a satisfying little crunch before it melts in your mouth. The homemade caramel is buttery. One small cookie with a cup of coffee (or in our case last night, glasses of cold white wine) will make you a happy person. It’s an added bonus that they’re stunningly beautiful.
I found many, many recipes online that are like this one (practically verbatim) but I’ll toss the credit to eatswellwithothers. My daughter Jill and I found a few minor problems which we fixed.
This recipe makes about 70 cookies. A whole plate full went with a daughter to work. That leaves plenty to be divvied up and taken to neighbors this afternoon.
For the shortbread:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
For the caramel:
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 2 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
For the chocolate:
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- Maldon sea salt flakes or other sea salt for sprinkling
To make the shortbread, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, making sure that paper comes over the sides of the pan. (You’ll be using the paper to lift the finished cookies out of the pan.) In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, blend in the flour mix until just incorporated. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking pan and press into an even layer. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the caramel, combine the butter, sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, stirring constantly. Continue simmering and stirring until the mix turns an amber color and thickens a bit. (I found this takes about 8-10 minutes.) Pour over the shortbread layer and even it out using and offset spatula. Chill cookies in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
For the chocolate layer, in a double boiler, combine the chocolate, corn syrup, and butter over simmering water. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour evenly over the caramel layer and use an offset spatula to smooth it out. Allow to cool for a minute or two and then sprinkle with the sea salt. Chill, covered, until ready to slice or serve.
Take a thin, sharp knife and cut around the long edges of the pan to separate cookies from the pan. Using overhanging parchment paper as handles, gently pull entire sheet of cookies from the pan. Cut cookies into 2-inch bars and then cut bars into 1-inch pieces. Cookies should measure 2 x 1-inches.
