It's a wave pool cram-full with people. You can't see the water. And then the waves start...

I was a life guard at the beach for a few summers. I would really rather get in the water with a shark than in a pool with that many people. Bleck.

I guess it doesn't take long and the water has many colours...

Do I constantly need to be reminded that the world is entirely and extremely overpopulated?

That's right Giger, we're all doomed, may as well enjoy it while you can!

Know what I think when I see a large gathering of people like that? Wow, that's a lot of "oops, I didn't pull out in time".

I'ld like to know just how much water there was when all the people left. Like 30cm deep from the looks of it...

Well, I've done the Mexican Wave, but I guess I'll have to put the Japanese Wave on my list of things to do ;)

Make sure to grease yourself with vaseline all over your body before jumping into the pool.

lol,

great title! ugh... but that's less of a pool and more of a human soup pot.... i can't imagine the "flavor" of that particular broth... ugh...

perhaps miso?
