Google Earth Pool Crashing Antics

Pool OrangeWe know this is probably unsubstantiated rubbish from the Daily Mail, but at the very least it’s an excellent use of Google Earth and Google Maps.

What’s the world coming to? The average (middle class) British teenager can whip out their iPhone, use Google Maps to search for the nearest pool and set an event on Facebook while travelling the morning bus to school. If you are a teenager who owns a computer with access to Facebook and Google Maps… don’t be getting any ideas.

It seems that we have an epidemic on our hands (according to the Daily Mail), swimming pool owners should be preparing their shotguns for the rise in pool gatecrashing.

Luke Salkeld from the Daily Mail stated,

“There are fears that the craze could spread across the UK as the weather improves and pool owners leave their homes unattended while on holiday.”

Judging from today’s weather we may be left with a few shivering teenagers. Still, we’d rather harmless fun in swimming pools than harmful stabbings on street corners (sneaked in some sattire).
