So, browsing through youtube is a good way to burn a whole day. This is probably one of the best stories I have ever heard. A guy, who only started a trade for a simple red paper clip, turned his dream of getting a house into a reality without spending a penny, onto the house of course.

Just a wonderful story. Watch it!

The thing is here, that he had a lot of media coverage and stuff... that really helped him out.

If any of us were to try and accomplish this, we would have a much harder time.

yeah, I mean you could try it, but dont expect the same result.

It should be interesting to see what a simple object could do to some people.

Like Ctodd says, media coverage is worth a lot. People are willing to make bad deals just to hear their name in the radio or printed in the paper.

A radios show guy did a similar thing here. He started with a pen and ended up with a car.
