A canny Canadian internet user showed the potential of online trading systems by gradually bartering a paperclip into a three-bedroomed house. The clip was first exchanged for a wooden pen, which was traded for a ceramic doorknob, and the process continued right up to the house.



I remember reading about this, it's freakin' awesome. Does anyone know the website where you can read all the stuff he traded?


Man Trades Items From Paper Clip to House


How bout that.. some interesting trades there. I'm surprised he traded the snowmobile down to a Kiss snow globe, for instance.

- A woman's handbag containing jewellery and cash worth some 110,000 US dollars was returned intact to its owner in Melbourne, Australia, after she absent-mindedly left it hanging on a shopping trolley. The extremely honest finder wished to remain anonymous.


Wow. The Australian woman now has to come up with something to give to the person who returned her money. And it has to be worth 110,00 dollars :-b

If I found that money I would take it and run.
