        e-bay to solve ethnic clush
        It is not just African countries that are are constantly neglected by the rest of the world. Belgian's are feeling that they are not getting the attention that they deserve with the growing Dutch-speaking Flamish versus French-speaking Walloons rift, which is threatening to break up the country.

        So, what did a concerned Belgian do? Put Belgium up for auction on e-bay. What a clever marketing stunt. The offer for the tiny country reached $14 million before e-bay decided to take Belgium off the listing.
