One Red Paperclip



For those of you who haven't heard this story yet - Kyle MacDonald embarked on a mission last year to trade one red paperclip into a house. Last week, and 14 trades later, he finally reached his goal - successfully trading for a house on 503 Main Street in the town of Kipling, Saskatchewan.

The house is in Saskatchewan - so who knows if he's really better off - but it's still a pretty impressive feat and a masterful achievement of a high success to effort ratio.

It's no surprise that Kyle is Canadian. They are indeed notorious for achieving high levels of fame and success without much talent. Of course I'm making a huge generalization - there are plenty of talented Canadians. But Celine Dion alone is annoying enough to negate all of them.

Yeah, this guy is all over the internet... when I heard he got a house, I was like DAMN!, but then I heard it was in Sask.

'Oh... well, that's ok... I guess... I'd sell the damn thing...'
