A Dream Pool or Your Worst Nightmare?

London set to get world's first 360-degree rooftop infinity pool
"Compass Pools, responsible for the design, said the 600,000-litre pool would be built on top of a 55-storey building, allowing visitors to float on the city's skyline.
The building beneath will be a 5-star hotel where guests can look up to the pool through its transparent bottom.
The infinity pool will need a built-in anemometer to monitor wind speed and a system to control water temperature and make sure water is not blown down to the streets below.

You'll need more than a pair of floaties and a change of underwear if something like that happens while you're unlucky enough to be in the pool at such a time.
That London pool story looks to me like something I would dream up after eating spicy food just before going to sleep.
It combines some of my worst fears, like extreme vertical heights, drowning, being seen naked by total strangers in a public place and trying to pay for 5-star motel bills on departure ... when I can't.
 You won't be catching this little black duck swimming in anything like that nightmare of a pool.
I can imagine people in that pool swimming to Paul Kelly's 23rd album of songs 'Life is Fine', while pool "lifeguards" watch nervously on hoping nobody will take the high dive off the 55.
And I can imagine a Starbucks on the ground floor too for some reason;-)
