But the argument goes full circle.... it wouldn't be worth a thing if he didn't start the whole movement😂😂😂😂.... in fact, because of the whole initiative, everything he got along the way gained some value of some sort, so i guess the most valuable thing of all is the man himself! He is such a genius

Great Story= BUT IT'S ALL FAKE. I HATE that people think they can get a house for a paper clip. Nearly Every single trade was for publicity (Except maybe the trade with Corbin- He REALLY wanted that Snow Globe!!!) and exactly how much did it cost you to fly from place to place? MMMM? THat is another aspect of the story that you conveniently leave out. Where did you start from? You had to fly to Arizona, Canada twice, NY, California... Fess up and get real and tell it all.
