That's the situation facing workers working at the site of the new Vikings stadium, as you can see at the top of this post in a photo shot by the Mill City Times' David Tinjum.

Tinjum tells us the pic is from October 9. His office overlooks the stadium site, and he just happened to notice "the world's most dangerous port-a-potty" situated high in the sky.
Yesterday, officials from Mortenson Construction and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority gave reporters and photographers a tour of the new stadium. Construction is already nearly 25 percent complete, and over $1 million of work is being done on the site each day, the AP reports.
In sum, with interior work on the stadium set to begin in just about a year, workers shouldn't have to defy death while heeding nature's call for too much longer -- though we can't imagine how cold it'll be up there this winter.
Here's a handful of construction photos the MSFA has shared on social media in recent weeks:
