OK, this guy sold acorns on eBay. In a post titled Finding The Remarkable Among the Ordinary Steve Olson talks about this person who got hit upon by a cool idea while cleaning his lawn. There were thousands of acorns scattered scattered all over him and he didn’t know what to do about them. And then, he decided to sell them on eBay, and he sold all of them. You may derive your own lessons from this incident, but what I learn is that no matter how silly an idea seems, if you feel strongly about it, just go ahead and implement it.
