MOSES BRIDGE, NETHERLANDS

It was originally built in the early 1700’s to protect the Netherlands from invasions. It is constructed out of Accoya wood, a waterproof wood. The designers assured that flooding will not be a problem because the height of the water is controlled an adjustable dam. The dam also includes a pump in case the water overflows.

"Space Can Be So Lonely"
Everyone on the ship is dead, except for me and you onlyAnd as we’ve come to learn, space can ever be so lonely.
As the last survivors of the virus, we ran into each other’s armsFeelings grew so quickly, while we were drunk on each other’s charms.We’d carelessly toss around words, like “always”, “fate”, and “love”And we’d swear that the other was a gift, sent from Heaven above.
And I’ll admit that it was nice, as everything was new!We disinfected the ship, and jettisoned the dead crew.But when everything calmed back down, we entered that malaise,As we got to really know each other, and left the lavender haze.
It’s just been a few weeks, but you’re already so annoyingYou’re judgmental and dense, and creepily cloying.I’ll happily ignore it for now, since I don’t wanna be alone,But we’ve run out of things to say, and you dull me to the bone.
I can tell you feel the same, but there’s not much we can doWe’re the only two around, so we both pretend that “I love you”.I’ll still hold you every night, and whisper sweet things in your earBut the main reason that I love you, is that no one else is here.

"Space Can Be So Lonely"

Everyone on the ship is dead, except for me and you only
And as we’ve come to learn, space can ever be so lonely.

As the last survivors of the virus, we ran into each other’s arms
Feelings grew so quickly, while we were drunk on each other’s charms.
We’d carelessly toss around words, like “always”, “fate”, and “love”
And we’d swear that the other was a gift, sent from Heaven above.

And I’ll admit that it was nice, as everything was new!
We disinfected the ship, and jettisoned the dead crew.
But when everything calmed back down, we entered that malaise,
As we got to really know each other, and left the 
lavender haze.

It’s just been a few weeks, but you’re already so annoying
You’re judgmental and dense, and creepily cloying.
I’ll happily ignore it for now, since I don’t wanna be alone,
But we’ve run out of things to say, and you dull me to the bone.

I can tell you feel the same, but there’s not much we can do
We’re the only two around, so we both pretend that “I love you”.
I’ll still hold you every night, and whisper sweet things in your ear
But the main reason that I love you, is that no one else is here.

"Lots of artists can fill their work with aching homosexual tension, but no one else can make the impending sodomy look quite as classy and exquisitely dressed as Leyendecker can.” - source

Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male
"Nobody had to tell J.C. Leyendecker that sex sells. Before the conservative backlash of the mid-20th century, the American public celebrated his images of sleek muscle-men, whose glistening homo-eroticism adorned endless magazine covers. Yet Leyendecker’s name is almost forgotten, whitewashed over by Norman Rockwell’s legacy of tame, small-town Americana.

"Rockwell was just an 11-year old kid when Leyendecker created the legendary “Arrow Collar Man” in 1905, used to advertise the clothing company’s miraculous detachable collars. One of America’s first recognizable sex symbols, this icon of masculinity was defined by his poise and perfection, whether on the sports field or at the dinner table. Like the Gibson Girl, the Arrow Collar Man developed a singular identity, equal parts jock and dandy, who supposedly received more fan letters than silent film heartthrob Rudolph Valentino. To top things off, Leyendecker’s men were often modeled after his lover and lifetime companion, Charles Beach, making their secret romance a front-page feature across the U.S."
