Insanely Terrifying Swimming Pool of Death

I’m an avid swimmer, but I would never swim in this pool EVER. There are no safety rails around the pool. Knowing me, I’m sure I’d find a way to accidentally swim off the side and plummet to my death. And what if some crazy person decided you were hogging space in some way, or some other psycho imagined offense, and decided to chuck you off the end? I don’t see any way to get in and out of the pool. Oh, according to the article “a spiral staircase that rotates and rises through the water provides access for swimmers.” Yeah, that sounds safe. What if you need to get out quickly??

Plus, I have a fear of heights. At the end of each lap, as I approached the side, I’d start to feel tremendous anxiety. So for me it would be swim-anxiety attack-swim-anxiety attack, and so on. I will admit it’s stunningly beautiful. Here’s the article about the pool.

  1. Yeah, I can think of all kinds of scenarios where this is a bad idea. Looks like the people in the photo are just looking at the view. I would get claustrophobic though. Give me a quick getaway in all situations.
