No Thank You: High Rise In-Condo Pool Spills Its Water As The Building Sways From High Winds

January 26, 2018

Towels: You're going to need way more than just that one.

This is a video from a high rise condo in the beach resort city of Balneário Camboriú, Brazil of a pool spilling its water as the building sways due to high winds. I feel like that was poor planning. Also, why is your pool in the kitchen? That makes it way too easy to cramp up and drown after a big meal. Who designed that pool anyways? It at least needs some geosynchronous magnetic stabilizing rods installed underneath it if you don't want to lose any water. "What the hell are you talking about?" Ahahahhaha man I'm so stupid sometimes I even surprise myself.

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to DV, who prefers swimming at ground level where it's natural.

  • Why didn't they just drain the pool?

    Air swimming sucks and you get funny looks for it.

    Woop! Free wave machine! Get in!

    I love being on ships and could live on a boat but I honestly would hate to live in a high rise that swayed like that. Not sure what it is about it that seems just miserable to me.

    There's the inherent downside that if someone falls off of a high-rise or jumps off that somebody will have to actually do something about it.

    If someone falls or jumps off a huge boat there's no muss, no fuss... Unless they want to live in which case, they shouldn't have fallen over the edge. But on the plus side no cleanup crew. Sure, there's the mystery of whether it was accidental or intentional. But that's the case of high-rise drops too.

    I think you're all missing the point; that swimming pool is *cleaning the floors*! It's like a Rumba you can have sex in, sign me up for two!

    Someone please bitchslap the camera out of that troglodyte's hand, rotate it 90 degrees and hand it back to them. (Then bitchslap them again)

  • GeneralDisorder

    No no no... Grab the phone. Stop the recording, bitchslap, start recording, bitchslap, hand phone back and threaten with a backhand before you step away.

    Also, I'm shocked you still don't have a smartphone. But hey, it's cool They cost money.

    thats one option.... ORRRR... all future televisions, computer monitors, laptops, and movie theatre screens could just start being made in a vertical 16:9 aspect ratio..... IMAGINEEE

    All of humanity's worst atrocities throughout history have been due to the masses attempting to appease the worst types of people.

    I thought this video was a joke, a swimmingpool onboard a smaller ship. But then I read more, and was shocked this is an APARTMENT. I'm glad, that I cannot afford an apartment that high, with a swimmingpool in it!

  • The_Wretched

    Cool idea, architect fail though.

  • Matt

    a lot of buildings are designed for movement as a whole, but they did take the cheap way out by not isolating the pool to allow for movement below it individually without spilling water.
