July 24, 2008: Beat the Heat
From Boston.com, this heat beating tip from Korea.
They may be cooling off, but they sure as hell ain't swimming.
Seems to me, I've seen this picture before, but can't remember where??

The fecal coliform pool replaces the fecal coliform ball pit at McDonalds

Wait a minute...
I remember a pic of a pool in Tokyo...

Man... Bring on the polio.
Clodfobble Thursday Jul 24 08:03 AM
Man, with that many people, I'd require lifevests on everyone too. But I don't get the hats...
Chocolatl Thursday Jul 24 08:11 AM
Maybe the hats are to prevent other people's flailing arms from grabbing fistfuls of hair?

There's never a Snickers bar around when you really, really need one.

Does that one guy in the bottom of the first picture have a mouthful of water?
classicman Thursday Jul 24 08:56 AM
That does NOT look like fun.

Bring to a boil and add vegetables. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste.

That's not a water park! That's a street in Seoul, suddenly flooded by rising sea levels! Quick, everyone, PANIC! The end is NIGH!

That first picture is cropped to show only the people in the wave pool in that narrow band of space where they are able to touch the bottom but still experience the wave's full force. I bet it's much less crowded off to the right where it gets deeper and a little less crowded off to the left, where it gets shallower. But I bet lots of kids are off to the left playing in the shallow end.

what's a little urine between strangers?
bbro Thursday Jul 24 12:25 PM
That just makes me shudder. I HATE crowds. especially where strangers are touching me. I am tensing up just thinking about it! I would rather sweat.

Sure, a couple of hairs here and there won't damage the pump/filtration system, but when you're dealing with billions of people, those hairs can add up quickly!

It's dress down Friday - usually they come in suits and ties.

Also, I'm pretty sure you'll need to look at it in Forum View instead of blog view, if you haven't already been doing that. (And hey, while you're already in handy Forum-view mode, you could branch out into the rest of the board, too.)
