Got this in an email today. It is sad but true.
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 the beer,
then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you will have
received $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! Makes you
proud to be an American!
