No thank you. I don’t want to suffer from acrophobia while swimming.

This reminds me of the Sims games where you can build a pool and take the ladder out once your people hop in.

Other advanced technical features include a built-in anemometer to monitor the wind speed.

Seriously?

That pool is going to cost a fortune to heat, as it will be feckin’ freezin’ up there. Late stage Capitalism, eh? When will it ever end?

Looking at that mocked up image nearly gave me a panic attack. Talk about a setting for a horror movie.

I would suggest not watching “The Mechanic 2”; not just because it features an assassination involving a skyscraper pool, but, also, because it isn’t a very good film.

This is the union of all things terrible to me. Nowhere to set anything down, no way to get a break from the water without leaving the site, nowhere to rest… a sheer drop all around you. Yikes, no thanks, I’d literally rather sit in a tub of wolf spiders for real.

9 minutes in you find out that people don’t have to be air lifted in and out of the pool.

The 18th century they had guillotines, in the 21st we have Sims pool traps.

Yes. That and all I would think of is the unlikely even that the glass breaks and you just flow off the top to your death.

GAH!!! Why did I think about that again??!?!
