Change the listen directive from Port 80 to listen 443;.
I got this:
http {

server {
listen 80 443 ssl;

rewrite ^(.*)$1 permanent;
server {
listen 443 ssl;
ssl on;
ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/pingrglobe.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/pingrglobe.key;
#enables SSLv3/TLSv1, but not SSLv2 which is weak and should no longer be used.
ssl_protocols SSLv3 TLSv1;
#Disables all weak ciphers

root /var/www/;
index index.html index.php;

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ @extensionless-php;
add_header Access-Control-Allow-Origin *;
rewrite ^/blog/blogpost/(.+)$ /blog/blogpost?post=$1 last;

rewrite ^/vemail/(.+)$ /vemail?eid=$1 last;

rewrite ^/activate2/(.*)/(.*)/(.*)$ /activate2?user=$1&code=$2&email=$3 last;
rewrite ^/passwordtoken/(.+)/(.*)/(.*)$ /passwordtoken?user=$1&token=$2&email=$3 last;
location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;

location @extensionless-php {
rewrite ^(.*)$ $1.php last;

location ~ /\. {
deny all;

Could just be me, but that's hard to read!
listen 80 443 ssl; is not going to work. Put 'em on separate lines. Have you checked out any of the DigitalOcean Nginx & SSL articles?
Yes, and external ones... here's an idea:
If you join my team viewer and help me out with this, I'll send you $5 digitalocean credit as payment...
ID: 453 980 190
Pass: 8477

I am completely mind blown with this... what makes it harder, the SSL wasn't even bundled for me and I had to do it myself.
In /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/, do you only have the one config file you copied to I'll take a crack @ trying to clean it up for ya.
That's all I got for the domain, yeah. That's the full config file.
I found the problem!
Port 443 is being denied... how do I let it pass?
Do you have a firewall installed on your droplet? What's the output of:
sudo iptables -L -n -v
I uninstalled iptables from my load balancer, and all slaves.
