Largest Swimming Pool On Earth

Have Fun Skimming That Pool When You Get Home From Work!

Located in the resort of San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo City, Chile, the largest pool in the world is over a kilometer long (3,323 feet), covering 20 acres and containing 250,000 cubic meters of water.

It's a saltwater pool, they pump in seawater at one end, filter it, then dump it back in the ocean at the other end.

I'm thinking it will take at least 20 cases of Baby Ruth candy bars to clear that pool of swimmers...
