Best Investment

Investment advice....
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today!

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.

And, as a bonus...
A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that, on average, Americans drink 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that the average American gets about 41 miles to the gallon!
Makes you damn proud to be an American!!!

This joke has been circulating around for a number of years, and I always thought it interesting that the value of the beer cans never changed. So off to my very good friend "Snopes.com". Heck, even reading that is pretty funny!

A slightly different slant on alcohol consumption -"The church is near, but the road is icy, the bar is far away, but I will walk carefully."

Russian Proverb.

Sort of makes you think of your priorities.
