    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today! If you purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG, you would have $33.00. If you purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers, you would have $0.00 today. But, if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer, drank all the beer, turned in the aluminum cans for recycling, you would have $214.00. Therefore the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg Plan.

    Problem...

    If you live in a $.05 deposit state such as NY, you would need to turn in 4280 cans @ 5 cents each to get back 214.00
    If you have $1000 and need to buy 4280 cans of beer, each can has to cost ~23 cents each.
    If you are drinking 23 cent cans of beer I am pretty sure that $214 is going to be used up buying asprin, advil, and gatorade.

    I forgot to figure in the pre-payment for deposit.
    so you would only have 1000-214 = $786 for beer, resulting in ~18 cent beers.

    My prison inmates got mad at me for dropping the brand new soap. They really tore me a new one.

    4280 cans of beer is almost 12 cans a day. 12 cans a day of cheap beer, I couldn't imagine how bad off this poor sap is. Sad thing is I know some people who have drank that much by noon.

    12 cans of cheap beer is between $6-$10. I'd rather buy a 6 pack of something better.

    $6 times 365 is over 2k. This is about 1k.

    How did the hipster burn his mouth?

    He ate his dinner before it was cool.
