While I cannot help but admire his strength and courage, it still bothers me that he wears his shoes on the wrong feet.

 

Not being a double amputee, I would imagine that tripping is more difficult if your shoes have the bevels on the front facing each other, instead of away from each other.

Armored Cadillac limo of former President Eisenhower was bought from a museum to be used as a wedding limo; had a little trouble on the way home.

Why is the Eisenhower Presidential limo in Europe? Look at the plate on the red car.

I poked around and couldn't find who bought it, but the accident happened on the Autobahn.  It sold for $55,000.

It is not the fall that kills you, it is the sudden stop at the end.
