My name is Anthony David Adams and I intend to trade One Toy Spaceship for a ride into space. I started with my toy spaceship and I am making a series of trades for bigger or better space-related things. Additionally, I will also be giving away 17,000 space exploration curriculum kits so students can shoot HD Video of near space. My current item up for trade is transport of your custom designed experiment to the Internaitonal Space Station. Are you a mad space scientist? Make me an offer at anthony@onetoyspaceship.com. I am based in New York City, but you can trade from anywhere in the galaxy.

TRADE #2: One Set of Space Books



As you know, my first trade was my one toy spaceship for THE ORIGINAL SPACE BAR from the COMPUTER Kyle MacDonald used to turn a paper clip into a HOUSE. Talk about an AWESOME GOOD LUCK CHARM!

I had the SPACE BAR for a while, and was offered a few things, but didn't really see anything I thought was perfect.. until tonight.

SOMETHING REALLY BIZARE HAPPENED!


As I was leaving my apt a few hours ago to get food, I was walking by some garbage bags and ON TOP OF THEM, were 6 books, looked like someone had placed them there perfectly, and 5 of the 6 had SOMETHING TO DO with OUTER SPACE!!
The Star Thrower  
The Search For Life on Mars 
Disturbing The Universe 
The Stargazer's Bible 
An Introduction to Astronomy 8th Ed. 
I thought this was SO cool and coincidental, I took a photo and grabbed the books.
I texted my girlfriend and tweeted saying "The Universe clearly wants to trade with me".

When I got home I told my room mate (Brett Dovman, Founder & CFO of Panel Fly - one of the smartest / funniest people in NYC) half jokingly how the universe wants to trade with me and his immediate straight faced response was "So are you going to do it?"

I was hesitant, and even emailed Kyle asking advice.. before he could respond, I decided that OF COURSE! It couldn't get any better than THE UNIVERSE trading me 5 BOOKS ABOUT THE UNIVERSE for the SPACE BAR.

Brett shot a short flip video of me going outside and placing the SPACEBAR on the GARBAGE BAGS.

I got back in and Kyle had replied saying. "Go for it! I love the angle!", and then followed up with a second email saying "put a picture of the spacebar-on-trashcan on your site....and make a craigslist FREE section posting about the spacebar..people might want that thing!"


The experience was pretty surreal.  What do you think, crazy, coincidence or divine trade? Let me know in the comments section below..

I've been thinking a good deal about intention, manifesting, and communicating with the deeper you that is inside everything.. the same core is everywhere in the Universe... Fred Dodson's wife sent me 3 of his books, and I just finished reading The Reality Creation Technique -- one of the best books I've read in a long time. This experience ties in deeply with what he writes about. 

And just because this is a fun blog, I thought it might be interesting to share the basics of the conversation that followed and some thoughts on it..
