    Invest Carefully

    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 canned beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminium cans for recycling refund, you would have received a £214.00.

    Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. :D



    Miles per Gallon

    A recent study found that the average Briton walks about 900 miles a year.

    Another study found that Britons drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

    This means that, on average, Britons get about 41 miles to the gallon!

    Makes you proud to be British, doesn't it? :D



    As the forum has been so quiet I thought that you all needed something to ponder over. :)
