Retirement plans compared...

Postby Brydog » Fri Sep 26, 2008 5:49 am

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 Air Lines 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 recycling, you would have
$214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advise is to drink
heavily and recycle.

This is called the 401-Keg Plan

hate to be the party pooper, but, 20 bucks a case, 24 cans per case= 1200 cans @ 14.7grams/can= 17640grams / 453.6 = 38.89 lbs x .85 = $33.06

where did they come up with 214? :huh: :rofl:

here in Mi you can buy a thirty bomber of cheap beer for 16 bucks or better on sale and the cans will get you 10 cents/a piece return at any vendor. :thumbsup:
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

I called you a joke because you preach your ethics like the rest of your party does. Then you bring your non-returnables to MI. , scam a store into taking them in, and take our money home with you.
It's not a big deal, and I'm pretty sure that you did this years ago. I was just pointing out your convenient "Ethics" :thumbsup:
