'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Peeing in a pool is no longer exclusive in lowering the public's opinion of you. Now there are health risks (aside from people maybe trying to smack you for your defilement).

I'm sort of surprised only 19 percent of adults admitted to peeing in the pool. Think they were honest?

“Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I, Shall take the hidden paths that run,
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

Why are people inhaling tainted pool water? Is this some new strange drug craze like Jenkem?

It is always a dilemma when the pool is closer than the toilet, while on holiday, "Should I - shouldn't I"  :whistle:

Anyway back on topic, peeing in the pool isn't bad for you if you stand and pee into it by the pool side?

I have my doubts about that number as well, we should launch an investigation.

Maybe that's why I would rather sit by the pool than go for a swim in a public pool.

Public hot tubs might even be worse than public swimming pools, though.  Who knows what goes on in there after dark. :ph34r:

Better yet, make it the number of politicians who have peed in the pool. I wonder how many of them would admit to it... Could be a good campaign idea...

Yet one more reason I avoid those giant water parks. 10,000 people, half of them under ten in a giant wave pool. Ever wonder why the water tastes salty? Yuck!
