One Red Paperclip is the blog of a guy named Kyle MacDonald. His plan is to trade his red paperclip for a house. Or an island. Or a house on an island.
Yes, he’s serious. And he’s made pretty good progress. So far he’s traded the paperclip for a pen, then pen for a cabinet knob, the knob for a coleman stove, and the stove for a (red) generator.
He’s been at this since July 12. Contact him if you have something better than a generator that you’d like to trade. He’ll even travel to you to make the trade.
But you’d better hurry, he’s going to be on TV tonight. And after that he’s traveling to New York City.
Why can’t I ever think of crazy things like this to make myself rich and famous?
