YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT THIS BLOG!!!
I read this article in the Globe and Mail earlier this week, and was absolutely AMAZED with this story. It was about this guy originally from B.C., currently living in Montreal, who one day decided to post a blog, with the goal of trying to trade one red paperclip for something better. His ultimate goal was to keep trading UP, all the way to someone offering him a HOUSE!!! He used to play this "game" of bartering as a child. Anyway, 10 trades later...his one red paperclip has being traded UP to include offers including ONE WHOLE YEAR'S RENT IN A GORGEOUS HOUSE IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA!!! This crazy (and imaginative) idea has made this young guy a somewhat of a celebrity...appearing on several TV shows and being talked and written about in the media. YOU HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT!!! His blog is fun to read, and you can see pictures of all the trades so far. I like crazy people, and this guy sounds like he would be a blast to hang out with!
