The Most Successful Internet Trade

I remember reading about this on Reader's Digest last year and now it has made its way into 2008 Guiness Book of Records as the most successful internet trade. Well, this is really hard to beat and there is a lot of a reason why it is a great achievement.

A guy named Kyle Macdonald started out with a red paper clip and a blog post with the aim of trading it for a house and he eventually achieved it a year later with 14 trades.

Wow, a paper clip for a house! I would really want to do that. There is even more that he is gaining from that venture such as book rights and also movie rights.

This is just amazing because anyone that would propose that idea to me will just leave me laughing but who has got the last laugh now.

Well, enough said and this shows that nothing is impossible. So I would start, anyone want to trade a red pin with a house? (I am willing to negotiate)

Cheers ;)
