    Default Something to think about.

    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 a £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, doesn't it?

    also - much better off spending all your money while you're young and being broke in old age.
    heard too many stories about those who've worked hard all their lives, paid tax all those years and then had their houses taken away from them. it ain't right!
    spend what you have now - enjoy it.

    + I know too many people dead in their 50's..... nowhere near retirement and were still working hard to the end.

    I'm 44 this year and still living like a 21 year old, bollox to old age

    I very much doubt you could have bought any Lehman Bros shares a year ago, for neither love nor money....
