Today's lesson...proud to be an American I am!!!


Unfortunately...

  • 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 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.

Other related findings...
  • 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!

And in honor of this being my 100th post on this blog, let's all join in...

100 Bottles of beer on the wall, 100 bottles of beer...
