    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines a few years ago, you will have $49.00 today
    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG a few years ago, you will have $33.00 today.
    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers a few years ago, you will have $0.00 today
    But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer, drank all of it, then turned in the aluminium cans for
    recycling refund, you will have received $214.00.

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

    I'm going to cash out all of my mutuals and invest in Old Speckled Hen.

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

    I drink about 19 gallons of beer a year.

    Hell! That means I'm getting about 47 miles to the gallon!

    :woohoo:

    Wait, so not only have I been pissing my invest away.

    I've been crushing it and tossing it out?

    Any word on the burgers and fries?

    Careful now, TT. Mixing burgers and fries with a heavy investment in liquid assets could result in the world falling out of your bottom! :eek:
