Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Off topic, but this is just too crazy to not write about it: The auction of the former VW Golf of Josef Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict XVI just closed on German eBay for the crazy amount of 188,938 Euros (~244,000USD).

A 21 year old guy bought the 1999 VW Golf for 9,500 Euros six month ago. After German Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger got elected as Pope, he put the car on eBay and he definitely did the right thing. A bidder with eBay username "golden palace casino" won the auction for the "pope mobile".
You could say this is maybe the first miracle of Pope Benedict XVI.
