Sky pool, would you?

Yes, looks ace.

Though you'd have to remember to have a wee beforehand.

 

That usually does not help as any immersion in any water colder than body temperature results in the body wanting to wee - to get rid of cold fluids in order to keep the core warm. So the body will draw liquid from elsewhere in the body and want to expel it even when jumping into warmish water that is cooler than the body.

That was all a bit complicated, an RPG to the bottom of the pool while the bloke was in it would have done the trick.

 

Yeah, but we would not have then seen how strong Jas is free-climbing up at the side of a skyscraper.

What worries me about these sky pools is the current that you can create whilst swimming - basically you create a wave that moves along just behind you. I would be worried about the momentum of the wave pushing me up, out and over.

Nope! 
I see absolutely zero good reasons to place my well-being... trust my life, to some architect / engineers idea of what might be possible. 
I'm sure it's probably safe enough.  They'll have done all the sums the think they need to.

But, fuck you and your probably.  This is like that first guy who built a railway bridge over the Tay*, and its users are the enthusiastic souls who got a thrill from being so close to the white-hot breath of the future.

*Tam Bouch.  He'd done his sums, and it looked good on paper.  But the wind-speed hadn't been measured in the middle of the estuary, 100 feet up, and as it turned out, it's stronger there.  And the iron girders weren't quite as strong as his paper said they were.   Who knew?
Ach, we'll ken the next time.

Workers can be seen cutting steel to measure and polishing the acrylic pool structure at their base in Colorado, USA.
