What if you could trade a house.........for a paperclip?

What this teaches us is the material world is kind of a hologram. In certain actionable measures a paper clip turns out as an equal value item as supposedly most expensive human using item of a house.

GuitarSlinger2112 (4 дня назад)
I think you benefited in ways that make this more than simply "trading a paper clip up to a house" and I feel like ignoring that is a sheister move. You got lucky and found a gimmick that worked and you were able to rely on peoples' desire to be part of the gimmick more than their desire of the object you were trading.
