My favourite christmas cookies ^.^

(To get rid of the egg yolks this recipe leaves you with, you can make another kind of cookie, Mailänderli for instance.)

[Basler Brunsli]

300g ground almonds
250g sugar
1 pinch of cinnamon powder
2 egg whites
100g baking chocolate
2 tbsp Kirsch

Mix up the almonds, the sugar and the cinnamon.

Beat the egg whites until they're stiff, fold them into the almonds.

Melt the chocolate (with a tiny bit of water), add both it and the Kirsch to the almonds.

Gently stir until you've got a homogeneous mass.

Thoroughly cool the cookie dough.

Roll out the dough about 7mm thick (on sugar, if you want to avoid it sticking to whatever's beneath it), apply cookie cutters. The less dough you nibble away, the more cookies you'll get (but the dough is quite delicious!).

Bake cookies for about 10-15min at 140°C (they should not stick to the baking parchment anymore, but still be soft).

Do not eat right away, they're still hot, being fresh out of the oven and all... :/

I was quite astonished I got one, too. If I could, I'd invite you :-)

It's kinda fun, although there's a serious lack of portals around here. But I'm submitting suggestions... :D

Keep looking on nianticproject.com . The daily clues lately seem to contain activation codes. (8 characters, all uppercase and numbers). Alternatively, rumour has it that you sporadically can get lucky in #invites  on irc.irchighway.net . And +Brandon Badger seems to run a creativity contest with invites for the winners here on G+. ^.^

Because there are many "programmers" who think that they don't need to study computer science to be able to write working software.

If you like Firefly and miss the series, there's an absolutely shiny fanfiction called Forward on fanfiction.net. The author manages to perfectly capture the original series, making his (unofficial) continuation of the story feel very authentic. Also, it's currently 73 chapters long, and being continued.

And if you don't like reading it on fanfiction.net, here's a PDF (3.5MB):

C'mon. Go read. But beware of the reavers!

Save the musicals for that obligatory musical episode that every show does beore they jump the shark and get cancelled, and bring back something good.

Awesome video. And music, too. Now, when's the next flight to Iceland? ^.^
 
Iceland is pretty much exactly like this.
