Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.

I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.

this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around

Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.

CHLOROFORM?!

That’ll do it.

Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.

The nighttime coughing aching sneezing “Holy shit what year is it now?” medicine.

"one night"
yeah one night and you’ll be fucked up for good off of that.
