One lucky tourist just struck gold, literally. While swimming in Koenigssee Lake in Germany, a teen discovered a gold bar worth about $17,900 on the bottom. She reported her find to the authorities who then combed the lake for more shiny things. Alas, it looks like the one gold bar was the only valuable thing in there. Seeing how the lake is known for its clear water, it’s a wonder that it’s only just recently this golden booty has been fished out. I once found some old glasses in a lake and some friendly leaches.
