Welcome back to another episode of “Potty Time with POTTYMINTS!”
Can you feel it? Summer is in full effect!
Or as they say at Club Med.. “It’s getting Hot, Hot Hot”!
We don’t know about you, but here in New York City, we are beginning to get that Summer heat and humidity!
Since Backyards, or even outdoor space is at a minimum – New Yorkers have to get creative trying to fight the summer heat
For some, this means finding a random Clothing Store blasting AC, and just wandering aimlessly perusing the store, taking full advantage of the frigid air.
For other New Yorkers, like Joshua Torres, he decided to use the Warm weather as a way to bring his community together… by buying a communal inflatable pool for his neighbors on 175th Street.
Whether its communal, or your own private relaxing aquatic sanctuary, swimming is for most people – their favorite summer activity.
For this week’s intro story, we wanted to take moment to highlight a new pool in London, England that has been making a bit of a splash internationally for its unique design…
Introducing the World’s First “Sky Pool”, suspended between two buildings, with a clear bottom… suspended 115 Feet in the air.
These are not mock-ups, or computer-generated images… this is a real pool, with real swimmers, suspended over a real active street, located on the roof of a new development.
The engineers and architects decided an eight-inch-thick acrylic frame with a nearly 12-inch-thick base would provide sound peace of mind for anyone worried about taking the ultimate dip.
We don’t know about you, but we don’t care how hot it gets… we are not stepping foot in that pool.
Imagine playing the classic pool game with your kids, where the first to find the item on the floor of the pool and bring it back wins!
… Only to realize that you are essentially forcing your kids to stare directly down 115 FEET TO THE STREET!
Why they decided to make a Swimming Pool for Evil Kenevil? We will never know
But for now, let’s get Back in the Swim of things with this week’s POTTY Picks!
For this week’s Video of the Week, we figured we would give you all something to laugh about this week!
If this Pandemic has taught us anything, it’s what we should have been watching on Netflix this past year.
Well, get ready to add one more Video to your Netflix Cue, as we have decided to give the prestigious honor of Video of the Week to the incredible comedian – Sebastian Maniscalco.
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Maniscalco has quickly become of the biggest comedians in the World after this particular clip went viral a couple of years back.
Watch as Sebastian recounts the difference between having Company over growing up, and what it is like now… its absolutely hysterical!
For this weeks POTTY Picks, we decided to focus this weeks choices on songs you can listen to in the car!
We don’t know about you, but singing a long or jamming out in your car is one of the best feelings there is!
We think Summer isn’t complete without the perfect Summer Playlist, and lucky for you, regardless of activity, you can enjoy your summer a little more with our curated playlist!
This week, we added some music from: Daft Punk (Feat. Pharell, Nile Rogers), Justin Timberlake, The Wombats and Jungle!
Make sure to like and follow the playlist to stay up to date on all our POTTY Picks!

Thank you so much for reading another episode of Potty Time with POTTYMINTS!
We hope you learned something new, had a couple chuckles and came away with anything positive!
As you know, we like to conclude our Blogs with a quote for the week ahead!
This week, in honor of all the Dads out there, we give you a quote about being a Dad from legendary comedian, Dave Attell:
We hope that you all have a fantastic week ahead, and our challenge for this week to you is to try something new!
Maybe try that new restaurant you’ve walked by 78 times…
Maybe do an activity you typically wouldn’t do…
Or maybe watch that new Comedy special you read about in a Potty Blog…
Whatever it is, switch up the routine a bit and see how it makes you feel! We know you’ll do great!
Have a great week everyone,
