What can you trade for a red paper clip

By now, everyone knows about the guy who traded a red paper clip for a small pen, then he traded that pen for something else and after several trades, he soon got a house. So in the end of his journey, which last about 1 year, he had essentially traded ONE RED PAPER CLIP FOR A HOUSE!! How mind boggling is that? If I were to trade a red paper clip for something, I think the best I could get is a stapler filled with staple, because someone may be in need of a paper clip instead of a stapler at that time. So how good of a hustler are you and what can you trade for a red paper clip?

hahaha, I never stopped to think about that. Nice one, hmm what will he trade for his house? I think he'll sell his house on ebay for millions of dollars, then trade in the millions of dollars for a 100x worth that much gold, then he waits for the price of gold to skyrocket and trade all these gold to Bill Gates for the Microsoft company. HAHAH, now that would be the most hilarious news of the century. I can see it now, "A MAN TRADED ONE RED PAPER CLIP FOR THE MICROSOFT COMPANY."
