Think about this... If you had purchased $1000 in shares of Delta Airlines stock one year ago, you would have $49 today... If you had purchased $1000 in shares of AIG one year ago, you would have $33 today... If you had purchased $1000 in shares in Lehman brothers one year ago you would have absolutely nothing today... But if you had purchased $1000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for a recycling refund, you would receive $214 today... Based on the above, the best 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.
