imagine: if this guy didnt trade the paperclip then a dude couldnt repair an espresso machine and Kyle couldnt get the camping stove and he couldnt helped the guy that needed it and the guy that needed the power machine thingy etc. so if he didnt trade ONE paperclip somebody would maybe never see that he was good at speaking in a voice in a movie.
