I know you didn't mean anything. I was just saying it's one of those things where the real thing isn't like a video game.

There's a city, county, state ordinance (not sure which) that states you can't have a pool without an enclosed yard. My fence being blown to scrap now violates that ordinace. If the neighborhood kids decide to wander back there, the law makes me liable if anything happens to them, or even if they just get caught back there. (Kalifornia, gotta assume everyone has no common sense and needs protection).
