That really is very cool.

(I'd like to see someone manage it here, or down by Teh Fain's stomping grounds.)

I don't think anyone else will actually be able to pull it off, though. It's already been done. Before it was ever done, I'm sure people were willing to do this sort of thing to help the mission on its way, y'know? If someone asked me tomorrow if I wanted to trade them something for their blue paperclip, I'd tell them to fuck off. :)

It's not about the paperclip, it's about the principle. A metaphorical paperclip, if you will. Stuff is only worth whatever other people are willing to trade for it. The housing situation here is ridiculous, and I hear it's worse down your way. Imagine if more people were willing to stand up and say "wait just a fucking minute here" about the high price of putting a roof over your head.

(Oops, there I go getting all political again.)

Oh, so it was a statement about not getting carried away with the flock when the flock is being shepherded into disaster, and not an encouragement or further paperclip antics.

I can dig that.

And yes, housing costs. :( On the bright side, my folks are lucky, since their house is worth about %1500 of what they paid for it in the late 70's.
