Not me.
Saw another cyclist get doored a porta-john.
Early afternoon I was riding around the Mall in DC, long before the fireworks crowd started to gather. Not many people around yet. I see a cyclist passing across the front of a long line of porta-johns. Suddenly one of the doors pops open and clips him. He didn't fall and the person who opened the door seemed ok. I decided to let them sort it out so I just rode on, laughing to myself.

hit one of those things hard enough and you could tip it over . Sucks to be the person inside!

And if you do it exactly right, it would be like riding into a hatchet.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
