We don't care what language you speak, paying close to a million dollars for a license plate because the number 12 sounds like "certainly easy" in your native tongue makes no sense. But this happened in Hong Kong. A man wearing a surgical mask bid and won the plate at the $910,000 price. Don't think that's strange enough? He paid the second highest price for a license plate ever. The top prize goes to the guy who paid almost twice that amount for number 9. That means "ever lasting."
