Steve’s scent haunted you.

Even after you made your temporary move into Sam’s place, the distinct smell of generic bar soap mixed with a touch of mint and a lingering hint of laundry detergent never left your nose. When you arrived at Sam’s apartment late at night after your argument with Steve, you had shrugged out of his sweatshirt immediately, draping it over one of the armchairs in hopes of escaping him. Ever since, you stayed clear of Steve’s sweatshirt, dancing around it like one would a landmine, fearing you might explode if you came too close. Despite your efforts, his scent continued to torment you, at times nearly persuading you to return to the apartment you previously shared with Steve.

Low cal homemade brownie mix + baked brownies!

I’ve got a horrid sweet tooth, but here’s a dessert recipe lower in calories than a lot of “skinny” barely sweet apple and cinnamon recipes. I will include the brownie mix and recipe both just in case u’re looking for either + compare it to other low cal alternatives!

Brownie Mix (can use right away in a 13x9 pan or store away in a ziploc bag):

  • ½ cup Truvia baking blend (190 cals)
  • ½ cup flour (200 cals, depending on mix)
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (98 cals)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

Total mix calories: 488 cals

Calories for 1/20 of the mix (how most generic brands calculate calories): 24.4 cals

How does it compare?

  • Entire Mix:
    • mix above: 488 cals
    • sugar free boxed mix: 1080 cals
    • regular boxed mix: 2000 cals
  • Calories for 1/20 of the mix (generic brands calculate calories):
    • mix above: 24.4 cals
    • sugar free boxed mix: 54 cals
    • regular boxed mix: 100 cals

How to bake for even more calorie saving:

  • use ¼ cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt (if a recipe calls for ½ cup oil, substitute with half cup Greek yogurt)
  • use 1-2 egg whites (more egg = more cakey) 
    • OR
  • use ¼ cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt for each egg
    • OR
  • ¼ cup skim milk for each egg
  • Bake in a greased 13x9 pan (use the spray!) or glass pan at 350 degrees for 20-30 min (if you like yours gooey don’t keep it in for the whole 30 min)

How does it compare?

  • Entire baked pan: 
    • mix above with low cal substitutions: 537-550 cals
    • sugar free mix following box directions: 1680 cals
    • regular mix following box directions: 3200 cals
  • Calories for 1/20th of the pan (generic serving sized most commonly used):
    • mix above with low cal substitutions: 26.85-27.5 cals
    • sugar free mix following box directions: 84 cals
    • regular mix following box directions: 160 cals

I hope you guys enjoy! ( you can eat half a pan and still be under 300 cals!)

(side note: there’s a post going around that says if you substitute all added ingredients in a boxed brownie mix with Greek yogurt the entire pan would be equal to 210 calories but it’s very false!!!!! A regular generic pan would still exceed 2000 cals even when Greek yogurt is used).

Association to Get Georg Zirschnitz his First Kiss (and Help Out Melchior Along the Way)

if you’re taking requests (((I always am btw))) well i found these two prompts for melchior and moritz (modern au): I suggested we play spin the bottle so i could kiss you, but now everyone else is kissing you except me - or - I meant to grab the popcorn, not your crotch, sorry

C u T E F I C. I wrote a fic like this for another fandom i was in a while ago but that never saw the light of day so here we go! Based off of my first shitty house party

Warning: Alcohol, smoking


The “Association to Get Georg Zirschnitz his First Kiss” began at the beginning of the year, when he got into Melitta’s car after the big homecoming game and refused to even make eye contact the whole way home.

It wasn’t that there was any lack of trying. Georg wanted that kiss more than he wanted most basic human needs. It was the lack of any skill when it came to getting that kiss.

And thus,  the Association to Get Georg Zirschnitz his First Kiss, or the A.G.G.Z.H.F.K., was formed. And with the glorious co-leadership of Melchior and Hanschen, they were still unsuccessful in their original mission seven months later.

With summer coming up, the group could practically taste senior year.  And taste the bitter bitter flavor of panic.

“Don’t you worry, cohort,” Hanschen assured the group chat that was similar to their other group chat except without Georg. “Wendla’s sister is having a party this weekend. It will happen then. Our boy’s getting his kiss before senior year.”

That weekend came, of course, and Georg still had no clue what the A.G.G.Z.H.F.K.’s plan was. But neither did the A.G.G.Z.H.F.K.

QT: came for the breed posts, stayed for everything! As a dog owner and science, I love learning about all the nifty vet things! Based on your breed posts, what could be done to help breeds with genetic bottlenecks? Other then more generic screening, would mixing in other genes from similar breeds help? I.e. Dobies and beauchrons? Thanks!

Genetic screening is useful for removing known deleterious (bad) genes. However, every single individual walking around is going to have some deleterious genes, it’s impossible to have a perfect organism. You can’t remove all the bad genes in a population, not without removing the entire population.

Adding in new genes to the population will help dilute the deleterious ones, and reduced the percentage of homozygosity within the population, which is a good thing. There is a risk when introducing new genes that you might introduce new bad ones, but most of the time you will introduce more beneficial ones than deleterious ones.

This is especially the case when you have a limited genetic diversity to start with, such as artificially segregated dog populations/breeds. Introducing a new batch of genes, and it doesn’t matter hugely which type of dogs they come from but the more diverse the better, will provide generally more benefits than problems. This is especially true if you have already screened the added dogs for known majorly problematic genes. The dogs added to a breed’s gene pool don’t necessarily need to be similar, because after 3 to 5 generations back crossing they will look morphologically the same as the original purebred, but hopefully with more genetic diversity where it counts (macrohistocompatability compound genes, for example).

I would love to see controlled outcrossing coupled with genetic testing, but I doubt that will happen on a large scale any time soon.

Deadpool and Logan are overall two of my favourite CBMs ever made, and I’m both worried and excited about the trend they set.

Since executives, not just at Fox, have a tendency to grab the wrong end of the wrong stick, it’s likely we’ll get a flood of 15 and 18 rated CBMs (I’m English) with brutal violence. And that works for some characters, not others.

Letting directors make the movies they want to make should be the trend both these movies set, and also that superhero movies don’t need to be the same old mix of generic armies and blue lights shooting into the sky and copious CGI: they can be funny, brutal, dark, and awesome.
