Liquid Assets

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, you will 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 have received a $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & 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 drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!

Now this will make an American feel a little bit better about life!

Haha! That's funny! So we should just drink more beer and we'll make more money than investing in AIG shares!
However, on a serious note, drinking too much beer will ultimately destroy the liver, so in the end we may have to fork out $$$ to treat the liver. With medical cost at a all time high, it's not a good idea by any means : )

ONE HELL of an alternative way to invest other than shares and properties.

Having said this, have you got any empty alu cans at home?
