one red paperclip


Kyle MacDonald, from Montreal, is trying to trade one red paperclip for a house. He started with one red paperclip on July 12th, 2005 and has made a series of trades for bigger or better things. His current item up for trade is one afternoon with Alice Cooper. Click on the link for the full trading history: one red paperclip

I wonder what would happen if people would spend as much time and energy doing something useful? (like maybe blogging about people's quirks!?!?!)

I have a silver paper clip and I am not willing to trade it. It reminds me that All is given to me by God.

I read about this a couple weeks back. I thought he was up to a house, or free use of 1 in Arizona for a year. Seems like he's taken a step back if he's down to an afternoon with Alice Cooper. Maybe it just because I just don't value Alice Cooper and his Poison music.
