    Swimming Pool and Water Stolen From Yard

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...TAM&SECTION=US

    PATERSON, N.J. (AP) -- Daisy Valdivia is annoyed that someone stole her backyard pool - and baffled at how they did it without leaving behind a splash, drip or trace of the 1,000 gallons of water it contained.

    That is funny! I guess they syphoned it out silently before they snatched it up. Could have put the water right into a sewer.

    Our 10' pool linked up to a garden hose to empty it. It only took about an hour for it to drain out.

    I can't believe someone is stupid enough to steal someone else's $100 pool.

    I caught a bit of this news blurb yesterday and thought I had misunderstood it... surely, I thought, my ears were playing a trick on me. Obviously not. LoL I have one of those nutty pools and I have never been able to get the thing up without it being greatly lopsided and spilling water... and it took forever to get the darn thing brought down and put back in the box. Yet, someone can just make one vanish from a backyard, water and all. I'm siding with the alien theory. LoL

    We had tentants in our house who took our pool when they left....we couldnt believe it when we went to check on the house to find the poolfence there with no pool....they even managed to dig out two half grown Coco Palms which was a major feat in itself.....we just give them an A for effort as there wasnt much more that could be done about it.

    When I first heard about this story, I thought it was an in-ground pool and it made me think of that Richard Pryor movie "Moving", where the people they buy the house from take everything with them, including the in-ground pool. LOL I couldn't believe it had happened in real life.

    It had to have been aliens. Otherwise, how could they have done all that, drain the pool AND cart it away, without a trace, all in the time span of four hours in the middle of the night.

    They must have used night goggles too. They couldn't possibly have used bright lights as they would have woken the neighbors.
