    Oh for the record I do think urine in the pool is gross and I do not pee in pools. I think as long as it's limited to some kids and the occasional jerk it's not a big deal. There is no defense for peeing in the pool, especially since just about every public pool has a bathroom close by. I grew up in a city so I'm more used to public everything.

    Its not so much the urine but the obese people with all the open sores on their body that gives public pools the off limits for me. It not a pool but a cess-pool. No thanks. Too much DNA .

    That was what I thought in WV - until I visited some people up the hollow and went out to their outhouse. It was suspended in the air and your bodily whatever went right down into a little gully/stream...that then went into the bigger stream, then to the bigger one, etc.

    Ok, so none of this is Hearth related anyway, so . . .I'm curious . . .

    What is it about 'obese people' in a pool that is worse than, say, anorexic people? Do obese people generally have open sores, whereas the rest of us do not?

    State park lake,no private homes allowed, right to the top of the mountain. When i was a kid we swam in the mountain lakes near our homes,most have a small % of sulfer content from old coal mine operations. Best disinfectant yet, no smell, no obvious harmful effects,and if you had a cut it seemed to heal much faster. Much better than chlorine as it dont evaporate.

    Side effects of diabetes and other weight related conditions causing the body to develop a whole range of rashes,shingles ,bed sores, bruising and in general do not heal at normal rates. And Dont forget chaffing. Public hot tubs are worse, equiv to bathing in a urinal. IMO

    This thread reminds me of the last scenes in The Magic Christian. Everybody in the pool! (Sorry for the audio cutout, keep watching anyway.)
