Stealth Pool Parties: Run SIlent, Run Deep
Pool parties organized online and held in strangers' pools. ... Whoah. I've used Google Earth to find optimal parking spots downtown (just look for bikes in the aerial photos), but this is next-level.
As a teen, I'd have loved this. As a somewhat-grownup, I'd not like a poolful of strangers in the middle of the night. Since I don't own a pool, though, I still kinda like the idea. Pool owners, just so you know, it wasn't me.
The new craze, known as “dipping”, involves people using pictures from Google Earth to identify homes that have large outdoor pools.
Once a venue is found, the youngsters use social networking sites including Facebook and Bebo to meet for impromptu swims and pool parties.
