    Just imagine...

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Qantas 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 beer one year ago, drank all
    the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund,
    you would have received $214.00.

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

    A recent study found that the average drinker walks about 900 miles a
    year. Another study found that if you drink, on average, 22 gallons of
    alcohol a year you get about 41 miles to the gallon!

    If only they made cars like that !!

    And Beer is very good for the economy. During Beer drinking season I grow thru belts and several size trousers...this stimulus creates many jobs. Its a win win situation. Do your duty, drink beer

    Ive been aware of this many years now. Ive a beer belly all paid for and probably weighs 30 kilos. Belly pork is approx 2 quid a kilo so thats 60 quid I got back right there, money in the bank.

    What ever you do dont believe that not drinking makes you live longer,--it only feels like it.

    Had you bought $1,000 of Budweiser stock last year, it would be worth $1,100 today.

    Had you bought $1,000 of Miller Petroleum stock last year, it would be worth $2,102 today.

    Had you bought Conoco Phillips last year it would be $1,104 now.

    Not a pompano, a permit. They are very similar. Same genus.

    Don't be ridiculous Par. The Budweiser would probably be ok, but how do you think the Miller Petroleum and Conoco Phillips lubricants is going to taste :mad:
