European swimming just got creepier

As if the heavyset guys in speedos weren't bad enough...
A local authority in England has given the go ahead for a swimming pool to use energy created by the next-door crematorium to heat its water.

The plan, the first of its kind in Britain, will see waste heat from the incinerator chimney used to warm up the neighboring leisure center and its new pool.
I guess it's a shame to let energy go to waste, but couldn't they use it to heat an orphanage or something? A game of Marco-Polo fueled by dead people is just...yeesh.
