Tampa Man’s Swimming Pool Sparks Huge Debate
It’s not easy to get the internet riled up these days. Just posting about your favorite quarterback of all time gets people a little heated. So does this Tampa man deserve any grief for having a vision? Louis Minardi had a pool built with a very radical design. It was over 40 years ago when he did it, now this guy’s pool is sparking huge debates on the internet.
We can all look back on what we did in our younger years and realize it may not have been worthy of a highlight reel. Minardi though is not upset with his decision to build his pool in the shape of a six-shooter. That’s right, complete with a jacuzzi is in the hammer. Talk about packin’ heat. Minardi had a friend who was a contractor and apparently was bored with the traditional pools he built. He managed to convince Manardi to build the pool in the shape of a gun.
The internet has given both pros and cons to his pool. Some say it’s a pool of mass relaxation others say in the wrong hands this pool could be used for mass comfort. In all reality, most people claim he was compensating for something while others just sat back and enjoyed the view. Now you may think a gun-shaped pool is dangerous but according to Minardi, that’s not true at all as many family and friends have taught their kids to swim in it.
Now you may think “how on earth would you swim in this thing?” Well it’s quite easily explained. “You swim your lap down the barrel,” Louis Minardi said Jones told him. “It gets deeper on that end. You can flip over from it, and then you can swim back.” You become a little bullet at that point. [Source Creative Loafing]
