    Actually the one about the toilet doors is here in QLD too. One of our state politicians lobbied for it for years - the logic is that if a person were to collapse inside it is easier to get in and render assistance. So all our public toilets have doors that open outwards while our hospitals which are expemt from this ruling have doors that open inwards!!
