Impromptu pool parties, known as "dipping," are the latest online partying craze. People scour Google Earth images for houses with pools in their areas, then use social networking sites like Facebook to inform all their friends of the time and place the "dipping" will take place. Often, people get dressed up in fancy costumes, then strip down to their bathing suits once they get there. Pro dippers bring bicycles so they can plan a fast getaway!

While it sounds like a lot of fun, especially with the sweltering heat of summer, a lot of home owners are getting angry and aren't hesitating to call the cops. A criminal record isn't exactly the summer memory most people want to have. Stats for Impromptu Pool Parties With Google Earth Trending: Older & Mild
