    I hope you will track percentage returns for each flip so we can see at the end which item was the best “investment”

    Works for whom? I don't think that this is generally applicable, but frankly, that goes for any number of extraordinary endeavors. It's fun insofar as being a spectator (and participant) in any incredible endeavor is fun. It's "real life" in the @SpooPoker is a real person. It's not "real life" in that what he can accomplish in this particular realm is fairly remarkable.

    Ive made no secret that red paperclip was my inspiration to do it the first time. Read that book and recognized I had a talent and an ability to make something that wasn't attainable attainable. But theres no question its real, Ive already done it. This time Im doing it again but documenting the process along the way.

    I dunno man, are those all of yours? If so, why don't you take out a loan against your future earmings from the wallet, and put them all up? If they are consignment, it doesn't really seem fair.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'd say all - though, frankly, if you are doing the red paperclip thing, it's still a bit of a cheat, since you are using opportunity time already invested and basically shortcircuiting the process. It would be more in the spirit of the game if you had to take the money from the sale of the wallet and start thrifting only from that point on, or at very least, had to invest some time right now into thrifting against those future earnings.

    @SpooPoker my brother. It’s fun to see what you’re up to now. I don’t think anyone here who knows you doubts that this will happen.

    But does it really need to be a Ferrari 4-seater, though? Dat California T....it’s not good.
