Enough to make your head swim: World's largest pool which cost $1bn and holds 66m gallons is so big you can even sail boats on it

  • The Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar resort, Chile, is large enough for sailing and comes with its own fake beach
At the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile, a quick dip could well turn into a marathon.

Swimming a length in this, the world's largest outdoor pool, would mean stroke after stroke for more than three fifths of a mile - that's 20 Olympic-size swimming pools.

The enormous man-made lagoon is set halfway up the country's Pacific coast, in the city of Algarrobo, and is filled with 66 million gallons of crystal clear seawater.

A little slice of the Pacific: The world's biggest pool is three fifths of a mile long and draws water from the ocean, cleaning it and allowing the sun to warm it to 26C

It also hold the Guinness record for the world's deepest - so if you don't feel like diving 115ft to the bottom, it might be best to bring some spare goggles.
The pool opened in December 2006 after nearly five years of construction work and is said to have set developers back as much as £1billion.

Video: Will Smith slaps reporter who tries to kiss him on red carpet

Will Smith was making his way down the red carpet at the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 today when a Ukrainian reporter tried to kiss him. The actor, who was caught off guard, first pushed away the journalist before slapping him across the face with the back of his hand, asking, “What the hell is your problem, man?”

33 yr old US man fathers 30 children with 11 women

At just 33, Desmond Hatchett (pictured above) has thirty children with eleven different women. Nine of those children were born in the last three years.

Desmond's oldest child is 14, while the youngest is just a few months old. His story/situation came into limelight after he went to court this week asking for a break on child support. The state of Tennessee takes half his monthly payments and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much because he makes minimum wage. Some of his baby mamas get as little as $1.49 a month.

Desmond, who claims to know all the names, ages and birth dates of his children, said he had four kids in one year. Twice. He officially holds the record for most children in Tennessee.
