Good grief. More fairy tales. It's May 8th. The pool has been in the 60's
for weeks and there hasn't been a single day I or anyone else has been
tempted to go in it. Even a month ago, it was in the 50s. What would you do
with a pond on your property? Cover that up too, until July? And if this
alleged hopping in the water is instantly fatal, then I should be seeing
lots of reports of it happening in bays, oceans, rivers every Spring. I
can't recall it happening. I do recall that every year the polar bear folks
have a go at jumping in the ocean in January, hundreds of them, making a
big spectacle for TV. If they were dying, seems that would be featured in
the TV report and make a hell of a story. So, sorry, but I'm not worried
about someone drunk doing something stupid, that's just part of what goes
with a pool. Look and you'll find plenty of drunks and idiots that have
died in pools, hot tubs etc that were operating normally. If I wanted to
make a similar loony argument, I could claim that the pool with a cover
is far more dangerous. A drunk or idiot could choose to try to walk
across it, the cover tears or slips into the pool with them, and they drown, etc.
