Google Earth: Throw a party in someone else’s pool


Some no-good kids in the UK have been harnessing the power of Google Earth to find houses with nice pools. Once a suitable house has been found, the kids use Facebook to send out some sort of “Crash This Pool” app or whatever the hell it is that you kids do on Facebook these days. Everyone shows up at the pool, beer and cigarettes in tow, and starts doing “the bump” or whatever the hell it is that you kids do at pool parties these days. Sounds fun, except for the part about how the pool and the house it’s attached to don’t belong to the kids. According to the Register

“Owners of several plush poolside properties have already returned home to find teenagers taking a dip in their man-made lakes or their spoor: beer cans, dog-ends and vomit floating atop their once crystal-clear pools.”

If I had a pool and some kids showed up in the middle of the night. I’d sneak out into the yard and pretend I was one of them, drinking all their beer and smoking all their cigs. At the end of the night, I’d be like "Hey! Let’s rake this guy’s leaves, clean up after ourselves, and leave him some money! He’s probably pretty cool!"

Ah, sweet revenge.
