Kornkob, what do you think of the New Glarus fruit beers?

It seems very clear to me the best place to invest your money:

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth @ $49.00.


With Enron, you would have had @ $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.


With World Com, you would have had less than $5.00 left.


With Lucent, you would have @ $3.50 left of the original $1000.00


But; if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND you would have had $214.00!


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


It's called the 401-Keg Plan.




Hmmmm . . . let's discuss this over a beer.

That's it, you're officially on my "owes me a pinky" list!

Cut off your pinky and send me a PM and I'll let you know the address. Maybe you and Dude can ship your pinkies together and save on shipping!

If you had purchased $1000 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 $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, You would have had $214.00.
