January 1, 2012 Sunken Bridge

Happy new years!

The bridge? It sunk.










Apparently this a mote around an earthen fortress called Fort de Roovere in the Netherlands. The water is too deep to walk thru and too shallow for a keel boat, making it hard for attackers to make it across before they'd be riddled with arrows and other unpleasant things.

To get access to the fort this bridge was recently built by Accsys Technologies out of Accoya wood.

That is super-cool. Bless the Dutch.
I assume, being a moat, the level is reasonably constant. Not much room for error though...?

har! I love it. It looks wrong on so many levels lol

I'm sure there is a spillway somewhere that keeps the water level constant in case of rain.

Apparently there is a sump pump that keeps it dry when it's working.

Isn't that Charlton Heston in the top picture there?


SPUCK  Wednesday Jan 4 06:43 AM

MWHAHAHAH!! Fail!

Definitely looks like the spillway - wasn'ting.

I marvel at the whole concept when it's dry. The buoyancy forces are crazy high! Think of the tons and tons of water displaced.

The Bridge on the River. Why?



BigV  Wednesday Jan 4 01:43 PM

+1 clever!

Damp Dutch ditch doesn't deter.

I had just about enough of this shit. My mother's employer just renamed themselves to a self-fellating made-up techie-sounding name like this. Can we please, please go back to the trend of naming businesses after their founders?

Thank you for calling TriInoGenAccTechOmniSysDynArcNetSynVinEx Systems, how can I help you today?


HungLikeJesus  Friday Jan 6 10:35 AM

Yes, like Colonel Sanders and General Motors.

But why are we posting this here?



infinite monkey  Friday Jan 6 12:31 PM

Oh I HATE Colonel Motors.

Wait. What?
