    That twinge in your intestines
    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 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. It is called the 401-Keg

    :yup:

    Those returns sound about right.

    And if you bought $1000 worth of GE only two months ago, you would now have $1960; $1000 worth of Ford, $3670; a $1000 worth of Bank of America, $3778; a $1000 worth of Citigroup, $3828. I took advantage of the first two, the banks can F themselves.

    I do like the beer plan as well.

    I heard two radio talk show guys that each invested $100,000 in the initial stock offering. They bought it at $19 a share and it went down to $0.01 a share. Each $100,00 was only worth $55 at the end.
