More than half of the public pools tested in a new study contained bacterial evidence that someone may have  pooped in the pool.

I'm not at all surprised. Have you ever BEEN to a public pool?

I thought you only pooped in hot tubs, especially after you backed up to one of the jets and got a surprise enema.

I especially like it when a kid comes up right next to you from under the water and wipes a huge snot/ spit bubble combinatin right back into the water. The older I get the more I feel like Howie Mandel might be on to something.

I thought this was going to be about a pool going nuts and drowning a schoolroom full of kids.

Disney World 2012: Kid poops in pool. Rigging of plastic bags and pool nets are used to retrieve the poop. As Disney Vacation Club members, we are allowed to pool hop, so we decided to never go in any Disney pool, ever.

As kids in Arkansas (a LONG time ago)... we'd routinely sneak out of our houses and wander suburbia... sometimes streaking or otherwise going starkers in pools. I know it's disgusting and we were 'careful' to ensure all were out of the water prior to rectal purging, but between our youth, the 'excitement' of possibly being caught, etc. the urge would hit on occasion.

THAT said, there's always satisfaction in letting yer tapeworm belch - but even more so in a pool. The composition of the log raft was maintained and quite admirable floating solo amidst the underwater lighting... Sometimes, we'd catch birds, bats, etc. landing to feast - it was our (albeit disgusting) circle-of-life, if you will....

"Each person has an average of 0.14 grams of fecal material on their perianal surface that could rinse into the water," the report notes.

Goddammit people, learn to wipe your butts properly. Just waving a couple squares at your ass doesn't magically make the poop go away. Keep applying toilet paper until it stops coming back brown. And maybe ease up on the power-farting too while you're at it.

It's not just pools that have poop in them. In the course of my job, I routinely have to look up whether a particular river or stream is considered "impaired" for one pollutant or another. The #1 most common cause of impairment? Fecal coliform.

Poop. It's everywhere you want to be.

However, if it stops coming back brown but starts coming back red, you've wiped too much.

You're basically in a giant, shared bathtub with water washing around everyone's asshole. Why wouldn't there be shiat in the pool? You're essentially steeping in a huge teacup of human excrement.

Yes, but there's a difference between "a little bit of incidental exposure" and, as the article horrifyingly points out,  "a formed or diarrheal fecal incident in the water."

A Formed fecal event?  Is that where you put the molds from the Play Doh fun factory up to your ass and shiat a star, or spaghetti?

In one bright spot, none of the filters had evidence of the strain of E. coli known as O157:H7, which causes serious -- sometimes deadly --  cases of foodborne illness.

Meh.  I can't get worked up over this. Germs are everywhere, and as long as you can manage avoid the major "fecal incidents", this seem like pretty standard germ exposure, and not so much that can make you seriously ill.  You probably get similar germ exposure just handling produce at the supermarket.

Adults can use baby wipes too.

I prefer to go from the straight from the toilet to the shower, but it's not always possible. Nor is cleaning your butt with soap & water and a washcloth or paper towel. Baby wipes are a compromise; I carry them around in my backpack.

Poop is one big reason I turned away from anal sex. You cornhole fans are weird.

and the kids immune systems are improved by the bacteria that is not killed off, or they die. either way its a win, right?

Absolutely. If you can't get off doing it the right way, your dick is too small.

You guys are too sensitive. Most of this is just incidental. I swam at a pool 6 hours a day for years that I later found out had no automatic chlorination-- I got tons of ear infections, but nothing worse. I've never had that much at any of the other pools. I've worked at various pools too, including several Y's. In my time, one baby had a diaper incident and a kid puked after inhaling water. You are required by the health department to close the pool for some time and shock it with chlorine. And I'm a bit of a germaphobe--doorknobs and phones and keyboards are where it's at.
