    there is no end to the lengths humans will go to create something to entertain others with.
    I swear I don't think that I am part of the same species at times.
    It completely escapes me as to why anyone would want to convert a perfectly pristine smooth surface into a turbulent wave action it is hardly big enough for any kind of serious surfing
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    My thinking, too. Why would anyone attempt to climb onto the back of a horse to use it for transportation? :-)

    When I bought my first motor scooter a lambretta similar to the Sears alstate when I was 14 the only thing I could find my horse good for after that was fence line repair of the occasional rounding up of a lost calf the motor scooter didn't cost nearly as much to feed. But the horse always knew the way home when I was too tired after working all day. the scooter required me to stay awake.

    I would suspect it is to keep the water from having algae grow in it.... Look at a pool pump.... It is better for the pool to be used by people or you have to run the pool pump.
