The bike sold for more than three times the $10,000 reward offered for the return of the bike in the 1985 film.
(It should be noted that Pee-wee had no intention of paying the reward since “whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it — so they don’t deserve any reward.”)

The head of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel was captured overnight by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico. You know, the place where your sons and daughters go on spring break.

On Thursday’s Coast to Coast show, former commodities trader and “guerrilla economist,” V, talked about the recent mysterious deaths of bankers, including three who worked at JPMorgan. According to his sources, there are some 20 dead bankers, and some of the deaths appear to be connected. Two of the JPMorgan bankers that recently died (Gabriel Magee, 39, and Ryan Henry Crane, 37) had similar executive positions, and may have been looking at the same spreadsheets, V conjectured. “They uncovered something that was so heinous, so incredible, that if it were to get out, you would see a massive amount of reprisals…and people getting arrested or thrown in jail…So this is a ‘clean house’ method being perpetrated before our eyes,” he continued.
He suggested that the deaths might be connected to a massive $2 billion loss incurred by JPMorgan trader Bruno Iksil in 2012 involving credit default swaps, a huge manipulation going on in the precious metals market, and fraud involving Libor (London interest rate) and Forex (currency market). V views the bankers’ deaths as a harbinger of an economic implosion, and believes they’re being murdered, with a “scripted” suicide story placed as a cover-up.
