Very cool ... but, as these cool pools get built, my bucket list gets longer and longer; I truly hope swimming is the fountain of youth so I can live long enough to swim in places like this.

It looks like a great pool for diving, but I'm not so certain about lap swimming. It doesn't look long enough, but maybe that's the photos. Does depth matter when you're skimming along on the surface?

Very cool ... Maybe not so cool… According to Guinness, the pool is kept at a comfortable 89.6-93.2 °F.

This reminds me of a question my daughter asked when she was 4-5 years old. "Daddy , how deep of water can you swim in?" I treid to tell her I only use the top 2 feet, but then realized she wanted a different answer. I told her 500 feet so she could grasp the idea. Cool memory!
