This guy started garage sale swapping with a paper clip and managed to end up with three magic beans.

just for ***** and giggles this is the image i used.

True, but think of the net worth increase from an old phone to that car. Even if it took 2 years, it's still quite an increase in net worth.

2 years for a porsche boxter? At 17 years old?

That's still impressive as **** .

not really he traded a 1975 ford bronco. which is more valuable then the Porsche by a few thousand so if he stopped at 13 trades. it would be better. (stop while ahead.)

2 years for a 10k car? Not very impressive.
User avatar #326 to #71 - giblets (01/26/2013) [-]
Hell, I'm 17 and I barely make 2k a year with work(I don't work a lot due to my work being quite seasonal).
User avatar #375 to #326 - KillinTime (01/26/2013) [-]
working 40 hours a week at minimum wage I can make around 36k in a year before taxes.

ofc most places pay a fair bit more than minimum wage and you can work alot more than 20 hours a week.
User avatar #376 to #375 - giblets (01/26/2013) [-]
I'm guessing that you mean dollars? As that'd be insane pay in the UK haha.
I haven't been able to get a full time job as I'm still in full time education, and most people don't want to hire someone who's leaving in about 8 months for university.

But I get by on what I'm on!
User avatar #381 to #376 - KillinTime (01/26/2013) [-]
$15.96/h AUD, 40 hours a week 56 weeks a year comes to 35,750 AUD. At the current exchange rate that's 27,527 euros or 37,180 usd.

I honestly have trouble understanding how some people can't make 10k in a year. I know min wage differs country to country but that's like, minimum to survive really.
User avatar #388 to #381 - giblets (01/27/2013) [-]
If I dropped out of education and moved out I would be able to get that much money, but I don't actually need to (And it would probably be very counter productive to my future if I did.

17 year old with a porsche huh...i sure hope he can afford the upkeep, gas, and insurance that goes along with it

I watched a TV show where a guy did the same.   
   
He started with a paper-clip, and over the period of about 6+ years he ended up with a house.

can someone explain what "cregslist swapping" is
User avatar #7 to #6 - amiliapond (01/25/2013) [-]
craigslist is like ebay but you can see stuff near your area instead of cross country. and swapping is like trading on ebay, say a cell phone for a gameboy, a gameboy for a laptop, for a better laptop, for a PC, for some precious metal, for a crappy car, decent car, good car, better car, small house, decent house, huge house, microsoft, and finally a better gameboy
User avatar #8 to #7 - xsap (01/25/2013) [-]
the question is why would anyone trade a decent car for a crappy car...

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.

Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!!

User avatar #84 - restrict (01/26/2013) [-]
i sometimes like going on craiglist and look through the "free" tab and go collecting random **** i dont need.

Then i can use the parts to build a robot or some **** . I got a old TV and took out the glass, its pretty leet.

then i could sell the stuff i get for free to make money, this would be so useful if i ever end up being a homo.
