This guy traded one red paperclip for a house in Canada. A nice house, at that. It's old, but who cares? He got it for free (or more specifically for the price of one red paperclip, whatever that might cost).
A free house. For one red paperclip. Well, there were a few steps in between, but basically, it all boils down to that. Lucky sonofabitch. When am I going to stumble into one of these great ideas?
