Need a chair? Have you tried looking in the pool at the University of Rochester?

For anyone visiting this run down swimming pool it has to be one of the oddest sights in the world. Formerly a part of the Merle Spurrier Gymnasium, and connected to the Susan B. Anthony women’s dormitory, this 25-yard-long, six lane swimming pool was the jewel of the recreation area for a few years. However, once the women’s gym was moved to the Robert B. Goergen Athletic Center in 1982 the pool has become a depository for the unwanted. Whenever someone at university isn’t sure were to store something they put it in the pool, that’s why you can find chairs, desks, and televisions stacked in chaos where young women once swam laps.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
