    Sunken Moses Bridge in Netherlands gives you walking across water effect


    Everyone wants superpowers and I'm sure some of you may have wished for Moses' ability to part water and cross to the other side, but you thought it was impossible huh? That is unless you fancy taking a stroll over the Moses Bridge in the Netherlands.

    In the 17th century a series of fortresses and moats were built stretching out over the West Branbant Water Line. These were built to provide the residents with protection when Spain and France were invading. One of these, Fort de Roovere had a shallow moat that surrounded it that was too deep to be marched across but was too shallow for boats to float on. It has been protected until the Moses Bridge was designed by Ro Koster and Ad Kil, two architects.

    They have holes in the bridge so the water runs out if it gets too high.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
