MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE BRITISH!
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines 2 years ago, you would have £49.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in AIG insurance company 2 years ago, you would have £33.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers 6 years ago, you would have nothing today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Northern Rock 5 years ago, you would have nothing today
But, if you had purchased £1,000 worth of beer one year ago at Tesco's, drunk all the beer, then taken the aluminum cans to the scrap metal dealer, 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 Briton walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found that Britons drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means that, on average, Britons get about 41 miles to the gallon!
Makes you proud to be British!
