pool table pool

A swimming pool in the shape of a billiard table

A custom swimming pool in the shape of a billiard table, with pockets on the sides that could serve as seating areas or steps. Custom beach balls with numbers and stripes, and foam chairs in the shape of chalk for effect. The only problem is that to get the full effect you would need to paint the bottom of the pool green. That might look a bit nasty. Now how to make a diving board look like pool cues?

       Hrm... a pool table is awfully small to swim in. Could we make it larger than a pool table?   

       Also, if there's tables in the pockets, wouldn't they be lower than the water level, and as such be rather flooded by the pool?   

       Pool cues as diving boards? Make 'em really big then cut 'em in half long wise. Voila! Two diving boards.

       Don't paint it green, just don't use chlorine.

       Only appropriate, I would think, if your family look like billiard balls.

       1. Inanimate objects don't have emotions.   

       2. I've never seen one that wasn't green. (refer to #1)

       I have seen them in red... although it looks kinda weird.

       pool tables can be blue. she said assertively.

       ok Po you've convinced me. I will start construction at once on a blue pool table pool.   

       I'll let you know when it's ready for swimming.

       What about a table pool table. A little bonzai thing, with fondue forks for cues, as a sort of entrecourse, with Verne Troyer playing... ages 4 to adult...

       no no [po], first day on the job and all that. I've only just discovered the halfbakery. It is awesome. Do you suppose there is the yang to your demiboulangerie somewhere in China?

       This brings to mind an image of a regular size billiard table, except instead of felt, it's filled with water, and the balls float in it.   

       You'd have to use some care taking shots. Hit the cue ball too hard and it will get bogged down in the water ahead of it. A nice easy shot will drift along, leaving a wake behind that disturbs the other balls.
