Guiness Records

An interesting and a stupid record

The interesting record is a new pool in Algarrobo, Chile. Guinness World Records named the swimming pool at the Chilean San Alfonso del Mar resort the world's largest on Tuesday. It is 3,323-feet long, holds 250,000 cubic meters of water and covers about 20 acres. It is a saltwater pool that pulls in and cleans water from the ocean.
The next largest pool? 450x300 feet in Morocco.

And now for the stupid record:

Just who enabled this woman? And for how many years have they had to do it? Its one thing to bathe and wipe the butt of a loved one who is sick or old, but this woman is neither (tho maybe a bit sick in the head) She can't cook, she can't clean, she cant drive, she probably cannot work at all, likely needs assistance with getting dressed, and she cant use the bathroom by herself. Definitely stupid.
