So somehow when I saw this picture it reminded me of bottled water. Here we have an man-made swimming device (no doubt with chlorine and all kinds of chemicals) so that people can think they're swimming in a river, which would probably poison one on contact! There's something quite ironic about this. Imagine your great grandfather looking at this picture, would they understand it?
