    Investment advice from England
    "If you had purchased £1,000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago, they would now be worth £4.95. With HBOS, earlier this week, your £1,000 would have been worth £16.50. £1,000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5.

    But if you bought £1,000 worth of Tennants Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium recycling plant, you would get £214. So based on the above statistics, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle."

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago,you will have $49.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have $33.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you will have $0.00 today.

    But,if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all thebeer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you will have got $214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.
    A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

    Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon! Be proud to be an American!
