The Travel Channel has put together a fairly complete list of the most extreme pools in the world. I was actually watching this on TV last night (for those of you who never log off: it’s that big monitor with no keyboard and more comfortable seating) when I felt inclined to TwitPic about the beer pool.
I have a few qualms with the beer pool. First of all, I was a little flustered because I had never heard of it before. When was the last time you actually learned something new from one of those MOST EXTREME countdown shows?
Second, the title “Beer Pool” is something of a misnomer. The 13×13 foot pool is filled with 52 gallons of beer mixed with 4000 gallons of water. A more accurate title would be the “1.3% Beer Pool.”
Ok, so I’m being playfully pedantic – I obviously get the novelty of having a Beer Pool, I’m just bitter I didn’t blog about it sooner.
