    Olympians pee in pools...nice

    Not a very good endorsement for public pools lol. What happened to being adults, much less pros?

    There are two types of people in this world - those who say they pee in pools and those who lie

    I wasn't surprised that they would say that really. With the amount of time that those guys spend in a pool each day, it's no surprise that they would do that. Oh well, chlorine takes a few seconds to make it go away anyway.

    My daughter was a swimmer, age 6 through college. She told me that the coaches tell the swimmers to pee in the pool. They would rather them do that than keep getting out of practice to go to the restroom. Imagine 50 or more swimmers at a time peeing in a pool, and they practice 5 or 6 times per week!

    We should have a poll.

    Those of us who think it's gross and those of us who add plenty of chlorine

    I had a big party here Saturday, maybe 25 in the pool at a time, maybe more. I put 182oz of Clorox in the pool before the party, even with my SWG.
