One Red Paperclip… There’s A Sucker Born Every Minute…

You’ve got to admire this guy. It was a fabulous idea, but it just goes to show that some people will buy into any gimmick.

He started the whole trading process with one red paperclip, then 14 trades later, he ended up with a house.

Mind you, if I’d been trading stuff for that long, I’d expect a much bigger house, after going at it for a year.

How do people come up with these ideas? More to the point, how can they be arsed to keep up with it?

Oh well, good for him anyway.
