    That`s awesome. I can`t believe he went from red paperclip to Cintas Cube van. Jay needs to put him on the Tonight Show. Jay collects cars, why not take the Cube van?

    Better yet, he should go on Conan. YEAH.

    Now we sit and wait for the guy that says instead of trading a paperclip, he should get a job and a life. I think this is awesome and very creative. The internet has most definitely helped him on this.

    What does it really matter what it was that he started with or what it ends with. One thing is for sure - he`s gonna have some awesome memories! Everyone is behind him and willing to trade because ist`s just so cool!

    Everyone should trade! That way we don`t get taxed!
    Trading - it`s not just for baseball cards anymore.

    I saw his site sometime before the holidays and he was up to the snowmobile. I think he`s on to something but, I`ll bet he plateaus at some point. For his sake, I hope not.

    I thought the doorknob was really cool though. I would have traded an old Coleman stove for it.

    Wow, this site amazes me. To go from one red paper clip to one Cube van (and soon enough to one house) is unbelievable and genius. He`s also going to be on The Hour tonight for the official trade up of the trip to Yahk for the cube van.

    THis is kinda like the movie "Have you seen this man" about Jeoff Lupo (an excellent movie by the way). Except that in the movie, he isn`t doing it to "get a house". more as an art project
