Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools. 

Amazing!

They’ve already reached WAY over their goal, but you can still get some early bird deliveries for an early start of the water balloon madness!

MMA fighter Kyle Kingsbury deserves a standing ovation for this

Ultimate fighters are known for being the toughest of the tough. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get a little cheeky when equality is on the line.

Why this was such a huge gesture

An NYPD officer was caught using a chokehold again. This time on a pregnant woman 

Pictured above is an NYPD officer placing pregnant Rosan Miller in a chokehold right before she was arrested for disorderly conduct on Saturday. Miller’s offense: Grilling on a sidewalk, which violates local law in Brooklyn. In the photos, an officer has his arm around Miller’s neck in an apparent struggle.
