If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have$33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, youwill 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 will havereceived $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and 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 drank, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to thegallon!

Makes you proud to be an American

If you buy those returnable brown bottles you can get your beer a little cheaper!
