Invesment

I recieved this email from my FIL

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now
be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original
$1000.With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Delta airlines stock you would have
$49.00 left. If you had purchased United Airlines you would have nothing
left.

But, if you had purchased $1000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund you
would have $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily and recycle. This is called the 401-Keg Plan.

Being too drunk to drive would save the balance in gas money, thus breaking even.

Well I have had a couple of the stocks you mention and lost my a$$ with them. I do like your last plan. Drink and get reinburse. Just think JB would have over 400 Bud Light cans if he kept just one from each video.

Funny thing is that we have a huge storage building next to the club house at the camp ground, and NO one wants to take The cans back, plus I do clean up after weekends. (5 cents a piece) Took me 4 hrs to take them all back, cash in, and fill the motor home with gas. ($170.00) Fill the propane. ($38.00) And still had cash left over for a oil change and lube on the generator and motor home. ($28.00) Thats $236.00 worth of service. I think I had a couple of bucks left over at the end. I'll take the time to turn cans and bottles in. Think we took back 536 cans @ a nickel a piece, thats $268.00. I gave a bud a twenty for use of his cube van.

I'm not real good a math, but I think it comes out
to 26 dollars and 80 cents.
