I’ve only swam in attendee-infested waters on one occasion, and luckily I wasn’t assaulted with any unfamiliar paints or other odorous liquids. Still, I’ve watched from outside the pool enclosure as an attendee caked in a gray skin tone cannonballed into the water and emerged as a different, less-gray human who looked just like them emerged from the discolored splash zone.

I watched this from a distance and through a layer of protective glass, so I was fine.
