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...

...to the (understandably) adverse...

...to 'pool pee-ers'...

...to the doubters.
