Jake Havechek: Will people be frisked for Baby Ruth bars before entering?
Headso: Now that brings up a question... If you fell 24 stories inside a pillar of water also falling 24 stories would the water break your fall at all?
Killahertz: Headso: Now that brings up a question... If you fell 24 stories inside a pillar of water also falling 24 stories would the water break your fall at all?Yes, it would. In a very similar manner to which the concrete street would break your fall.
Headso: Now that pool has to be part of an action movie and the glass gets shot out and people get sucked out of the building.
KatjaMouse: I... kind of... want to book a room and try it out now.
OneFretAway: The very idea of that thing makes my testicles ascend into my abdominal cavity.
THX 1138: Wow. That's a LOT of weight cantilevered out there. I'm sure the architects knew what they were doing but damn, i'd be too paranoid to swim in it.
Sybarite: I would totally press ham.
ChipNASA: Best I could findThis photo of Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao
ChipNASA: WANT.....a view from inside the pool.....WAY TO GO CNN A-HOLES!!!
Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: I know where I'm staying next time I'm in Shanghai. It's a little out of the way of Pudong/Bund but I'll make it work.ChipNASA: WANT.....a view from inside the pool.....WAY TO GO CNN A-HOLES!!!Not the most professional, but here you go...
meanmutton: Headso: Now that brings up a question... If you fell 24 stories inside a pillar of water also falling 24 stories would the water break your fall at all?No.You're still going to accelerate to terminal velocity. I don't know what water's terminal velocity is but it's certainly not the same as yours so you'll either hit before the water does or after it'shiat and started to disperse. Either way, you're still going insanely fast and will have a very unpleasant and abrupt stop.
socodog: Made in China to Chinese building codes? No, I'll pass on that bizarre form of accidental death, thank you.
Tax Boy: Cantilevered pool with a glass bottom = super coolBuilt by slapdash, ultra-cheapass Chinese construction = SUPER SCARY
