What is it?

This guy took a red paperclip he found and kept trading with people.
First he got a fish pen and so on. At one point he got a car. He wants to end up with a house

Recently he got a dinner with a rockstar, then traded it for a snow globe, which he traded for a part in a movie.

A KISS snowglobe with a variable speed motor no less.

Hm. I would trade the movie roll for a Guest spot on the Tonight Show or Late Show. Or the Daily Show. or a Law Firm. Or an advance copy of spore.

Edit: actually of the trades up for offer eigther the girl with the chair or the producing credit on "The One Second Film".

I think the chair, the symbol and the shirt stand the m,ost chance.
I don't think the person offering a massage and the one offering a kiss *quite* understand what he's doing here...

My money's on the cymbal. Collectable stuff like that is the best thing to trade since its value is highly variable.

This guy is actually really interesting. Apparently he's also a writer. I think I heard somewhere on there he's going to be writing a book about this when it's finally done.

You guys should read this one: http://kylemacd.blogspot.com/2005/02/4-and-microwave.html

Yeah, the cows look like a good deal. Depending on their breeding, they could be worth quite a pretty penny. The problem is, it'd restrict the offers to people who are in or are planning to move to Australia.

Ok there are a few new offers. the Geo/Talk show offer offer definately has my vote. This time a practical car someone can drive around, and a guest host position for a show? It actually seems to be a good trade upish thing.

although it seems like the deal is missing something...

Edit: 3 new offers. Actually all three of the new offers seem good. The pie shaped Lot, the Condo and or world boat trip, and the week trip to a hotel in belgum for 10-15 with a catered party.

Between those four. for sentimental value I would go with the lot if you read the description.
