Nope. Same as with the glass floor at the top of Toronto’s CN tower. Nope nope nope.


#3

No.

Thus endeth the comments…

Cool. My feet would be all NOPE! but floating face down with a snorkel would be amazing.


#5

On the plus side, when I pee myself, the water’s probably already warm…


#6

Long time ago I had an idea like this, only the pool would connect across two skyscrapers, and swimming would be like flying. Recently I read that someone is actually making something very similar.

Obviously would have to be located in an earthquake-free zone.


#7

It’s the feeling of flying that would make me try this once…once.


#8

God damn it, I was going to make a joke like that…

But yes, big ass nope.


#9

Added to the list of ‘things that make my sphincter tighten’.


#10

Water weighs eight pounds per gallon. Just saying.


#13

I didn’t know that US water has a lower density. Interesting!


#14

Just last week I walked on air (on my steel roof).

Yes, silliness. Glass pool looks cool, and fun.

If I can reasonably imagine this scenario taking place, I don’t do ____.


#17

“Hey, I can see the poors from here!”


#18

A US gallon weighs 8.34 pounds.

Close enough.

EDIT to add: Whoops, I totally misunderstood what @renke was saying. My apologies!


#19

Looks pretty awesome. I would love to do that. Lower risk than Devil’s Pool at Victoria Falls.
