    No kidding. We city folk know better than to go swimming in water that has brain-eating microbes and blood-sucking worms. Besides, there’s enough chlorine in a public pool to kill anything that floats.

    Definitely not want to get into the ocean either. So full of jellyfish, heavy metals an other contaminates. No thanks. Give me a circulated and chlorinated pool any day.

    Back in my hometown, so many geese live in the local pond that it’s been closed indefinitely due to being a health hazard.

    @Lektio

    Ah, I should have thought of that. Boise is festooned with geese, and its parks with their, ah, emissions.

    Wow, lucky you; how do you keep the fish and birds away?

    The English language misspells the word, “waterfowl.” Shouldn’t it be “water foul”? ;-)

    When I was in junior high school in the late 1970s, we had our swimming class just after a swimming session by special-needs kids.
    One day, there was a piece of feces on the floor of the pool in the 11’ deep end. We all refused to swim in that water even though the swimming teacher (who was also a vice-principal) tried to make us go in the water.
    It got worse when I went to high school. My school was directly across the street from the sewer treatment plant, and my school wasn’t air-conditioned until 2009.

    He said the High School wasn’t air conditioned until 2009. He said nothing about still being there himself.

    Ashburn, I believe you’ve posted this before, and I’ll repeat my reply to it:
    It’s not just the special needs kids that have pool accidents. Many pools are closed whenever any kid has an accident, and it’s not just special needs kids that have them.
    My brother is multiple-handicapped and special needs, so I’m kind of sensitive to this unnecessary stereoptyping.

    AshburnStadium: Our part of town had a couple of mayors and the head of the (private) utility company, but we weren’t considered rich enough to rate a swimming pool.
