If you had purchased $1,000 in 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
in 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 proud to be an American!
