That's nothing, I've left pools in a hurry when someone's kids have taken a dump in the water, and the lifeguards didn't really care despite the fact that poo is a lot worse in a public swimming pool than pee... Shocked

Anything goes it seems in pools these days.

Remember when viruccas were a no go, with teachers asking and checking feet.

You might as well take a dive in a cesspit to be honest. I wouldn't bother with the sea anymore either unless you're on a secluded tropical island somewhere.. but even then the odds are theres still something in the seawater there that has managed to cross the pond too.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Shame human faeces doesn't hold the same value as 'Ambergris' (Whale turds). Sometimes if the ambergris is too large to poop out it gets regurgitated and vomited out. Lovely!

Come to think of it we do get a few whales in our local swimming pool, not sure I fancy following on behind any of them just in case Grin

If you see a civet 'doing its business' in the swimming pool, collect it and sell it to coffee connoisseurs:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_Luwak

@Jonpe

One wonders how they even came up with that idea. "Oh look.., there's a cat taking a dump! I know lets make coffee with it's fresh turds I bet it will sure taste nice"!
