Praesidus Watches

On the night of D-Day, June 6th, 1944, Sergeant Tom Rice jumped into Normandy. Due to enemy fire by German DCA, his aircraft had to accelerate to 164 mph (54 mph above the recommended jump speed). Suddenly, 1800 pounds of para pack bundles prematurely dropped, causing the aircraft to elevate about fifty feet, and with the centrifugal force of the plane, it contributed to Tom's disastrous exit. The accelerated speed and strength of the winds, wedged Tom in the lower-left corner of the door. It was only after several desperate attempts that he could break free and jump into the unknown. The metal of the door tore his arm up to his wrist, and his favorite wristwatch, a brand new A-11 was ripped off and lost in the Normandy night.

What comes to mind when looking at these is “vanilla,” and not that good stuff from Madagascar.
My best friend from college shared his secret to his huge financial success, "I fell out of the right vagina."
