Now the rich will be able to literally look down on us while they swim.

The "Sky Pool" will be part of a new development in London, called Embassy Gardens by Eco World and Ballymore.

According to Mashable, the dimensions of the pool will be 25 metres by 5 metres (and 3 metres deep).

What about the glass protecting swimmers from diving 35 metres into the ground? About 20 centimetres (7.9 inches) thick.

The Sky Pool will act as a sort of aquatic bridge, linking two apartment buildings in the Embassy Gardens development. So residents would be able to casually swim over to borrow a cup of sugar from their neighbours. Two thousand homes will have access to the pool.

The reaction on social media ranged ranged from impressed... the (understandably) adverse... 'pool pee-ers'... the doubters.
