Think he'll get that house?
In a rather astonishing coincdence, one Kyle MacDonald is also the CEO of a London ON company called Phoenix Interactive.
I know. I worked there for two years.
And built their website.
Wow a really good cross dresser?
I see no reason why he can't work his way up to a house. When my son was 12 he started out with a beat up AM radio, and ended up with a camper which he sold at 14 for 1,200 dollars.
That is a rather odd coinkidink! No paper clip connection, though.
That's wonderful. I really need to learn how to barter!
Sure. People will trade anything just to get their picture on someone else's website.
What? She has a whole box of them in her drawer!
It's kind of cheating though.
He went on television and everything, so the publicity is HUGE. Therefore, you aren't just trading for just the previous item, but for publicity too.
One time in high school I started with a penny and ended up with a dime.
One time in high school, I found a dime !
This Kyle guy looks a good bit like Hyp, wot ?
man, i could use a year of rent in phoenix. i'm moving in 6 weeks and i technically have no place to live.... course, i have nothing to offer. unless he wants.... ... ... a hug? thats about all i've got. heh.
i should work on my bartering skills too. wonder if i can get free college tuition.. that would also be very nice..
This is amazing! What an inspired idea.
i read through that site, i can't believe the stuff people gave him. like, he got way better stuff than he was offering. even that fish pen... a pen is worth way more than a paper clip. he's only even made 10 trades. it'd be more impressive if he'd really worked for it...
...ok, yeah, i'm a little jealous. i'm wracking my brain trying to think of something worth a year of rent... if only i had like a nice car or an expensive guitar or something. yeah, i totally have nothing worth a couple thousand dollars. awell. i'll have to find an appt the old fashioned way.
Does anyone want a paper clip? I'll trade you. :tongue2:
I'll offer half a paper clip for that paper clip.
i have an idea, who has something worth an years rent in arizona that they'd be willing to give up? yeah, and then, you tell me what you do want, and i'll find someone who has that and will give me something for it... and i can keep doing that until someone wants something i have.. its perfect!!
now i can live in arizona and i don't have to worry about moving without a place to live or a job!!!
I'll offer you a sheet of paper for the paperclip. :uhh: Wait, if I give you the paper, I won't need the paperclip anymore. :grumpy:
When I first saw that guy's site, I thought the same thing as JasonRox, that he's not really trading just the stuff, but the publicity too.
