I thought the largest swimming pool was the Pacific Ocean? It needs to be cleaned out and some more chemicals added but it's still fun to swim in.

That pool looks amazing by the way!!

EDIT: I can't figure out what these buildings are.... at the beginning of the article is says they are a resort but later on it says appartments. I am guessing resorts, but who knows....

Pretty nice, but not the nicest pool I've seen.

When I was taking my SCUBA diving course our instructor showed us a video of a pool (I think it was in England, but not sure) that was built to train SCUBA divers. It had artificial caves, uneven bottoms, and had a few spots that were deep enough to simulate the emergency ascent procedures. It was pretty awesome.

When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."

Why would you put a pool on a beach?

Also, what if you're in the middle building, and you want to get into the OCEAN? You have a rather long walk...

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
