    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!
