Blogger gets house by trading from red paper clip

This story is from the "Why didn't I think of that" files.

Taking a paper clip and turning it into a house sounds like a cheesy magic trick or a phony instance of resourcefulness on the 1980s TV show "MacGyver."

Kyle MacDonald, however, has pulled it off.

One year ago, the 26-year-old blogger from Montreal set out to barter one red paper clip for something and that thing for something else, over and over again until he had a house. (MSNBC)

  1. bizzare, cool! btw, love the description, really interesting (about yourself). Happy late birthday, too!

  2. Jen: It is a great picture, isn't it? I doubt if his original paper clip was that size, though.
