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