has no boundaries. We shall never wake up. Lets kill
them all, let's torch the world. This is for us. Let's
meet them for the first time... this isn't awkward is
it? It can't be... there are no worries... all we have to
do is cut the switch... wake the fuck up... this is all
I've ever dreamed... this dream is all I've ever wanted,
cared for, I only hope things haven't changed when I
awake... life doesn't work like this... once a night my
life is "yours to create"... mold me and make me the
child of the night, with all the ambition in the
world... my hate and worries cease to be... my fucked up
little head controls me... "dream is destiny"... wake the
fuck up... I kill, I love, I end nightmares, I begin
romances, I travel through sexual situations, I only
hope to never wake... I only hope, cause the exterior
world is not making sense anymore... I tend to get
scared... wake the fuck up... no... "Whatever you do, don't
be bored. This is absolutely the most exciting time we
could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are
just starting"... make this dream reality... love you... "If
the world that we are forced to accept is false and
nothing is true, then everything is possible"... make
this dream reality...
As it's gripped in my arms tonight
Like reality too tight
If a dream could last forever
I would hold you here '
Time need not freeze
I need not fear
This world inside, is a world I have longed to find
And I, will not be afraid to loe
I will not be afraid to lose what I once deprived myself of
My teardrops ave salt-satained this pillow
As it's loosened form my weakened clutch
By the suns light; too much
There's a hope today
That I'll find a way
This dream of mine invealed to me
Sometimes I runand sometimes I crawl
Sometimes I fly and sometimes I'm gonna fall
But this dream of mine will not change

Far cleaner than conventional incinerators, this new type of plant converts local trash into heat and electricity. Dozens of filters catch pollutants, from mercury to dioxin, that would have emerged from its smokestack only a decade ago.
In that time, such plants have becomeboth the mainstay of garbage disposal and a crucial fuel source across Denmark, from wealthy exurbs like Horsholm to Copenhagen’s downtown area. Their use has not only reduced the country’s energy costs and reliance on oil and gas, but also benefited the environment, diminishing the use of landfills and cutting carbon dioxide emissions. The plants run so cleanly that many times more dioxin is now released from home fireplaces and backyard barbecues than from incineration.
With all these innovations, Denmark now regards garbage as a clean alternative fuel rather than a smelly, unsightly problem. And the incinerators, known as waste-to-energy plants, have acquired considerable cachet as communities like Horsholm vie to have them built.
Denmark now has 29 such plants, serving 98 municipalities in a country of 5.5 million people, and 10 more are planned or under construction. Across Europe, there are about 400 plants, with Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands leading the pack in expanding them and building new ones.
By contrast, no new waste-to-energy plants are being planned or built in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency says — even though the federal government and 24 states now classify waste that is burned this way for energy as a renewable fuel, in many cases eligible for subsidies. There are only 87 trash-burning power plants in the United States, a country of more than 300 million people, and almost all were built at least 15 years ago.
Found only on the small island of Grenada in the West Indies, the Grenada dove is truly fighting the fight of its life. Habitat loss has acted synergistically with introduced predators like Indian mongooses to decimate this endemic bird's populations. The birds populations may number less than a hundred and are pushed into two tiny reserves. As if that isn't bad enough, the little territory they havet may be soon to be fragmented further to allow room for a resort. While the Grenada dove is considered one of the rarest birds in the world, almost nothing is known about this species. Most of what is known is held under lock and key by the Grenada government. Our lack of information may be the bird's ultimate demise.

Sandwich Monday on WWDBM continues. We just sat down with the already legendary KFC Double Down sandwich, which is basically a bacon sandwich with fried chicken in place of the bread.
12:39: Eva: I need a fork.
12:39: Lorna: It's spicy.
12:40: Ian: It's really a triumph of nature. When they're alive, a chicken never gets to have a pork inside of it.
Much, much, way too much more after the jump.
12:41: Mike: I worry about the future of bread.
12:41: Eva: Yeah, this is the end of bread.
12:42: Lorna: What's the point of this?
12:42: Mike: The website says people complained they didn't have enough chicken in their chicken sandwich.
12:43: Eva: This is a big "screw you" to the people who complained.
12:45: Ian: It's hard to taste the stuff in the middle. Chicken is stronger than bread.
12:45: Mike: Chicken is stronger than everything.
12:46: Eva: Can we admit it's good?
12:46: Peter: If I was going to kill myself with eating, this wouldn't be a bad way to go.
12:46: Shantell: It's lonely without the bread. It's a lonely sandwich.
12:46: Mike: Yeah, I'm nostalgic for bread.
12:46: Ian: Do you remember the days when sandwiches were made with bread, not chicken?
12:47: Mike: Seriously, this is rewriting the rules of lunch. And of sandwiches. We're going to replace peanut butter and jelly with chicken and chicken.
12:48: Ian: Right, from now on, the word "sandwich" just means "stack of chicken."
12:51: Mike: This is a Last Days type of thing, right? Didn't the Romans reveal a Double Down before they fell?
12:51: Ian: I shouldn't be typing while eating this. My keyboard is really shiny.
12:55: Emily: I think I just ate my dinner.
12:55: Mike: I think I just ate everyone's dinner.

Drama-documentary presented by Alan Yentob, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Van Gogh.
Every word spoken by the actors in this film is sourced from the letters that Van Gogh sent to his younger brother Theo, and of those around him. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilised and yet tormented man.
This is Van Gogh's story in his own words.
