Interesting facts about liquid assets

mark as unread

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 $214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-Keg. A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!

Yes, become a drunk because every stock you invest in will drop 90%. I know it's a joke and the 41 mpg thing is slightly amusing to me, but even joking about someone should invest in being a drunk instead of stock makes me lose a little faith in humanity. Then the fact it has (at time of comment) an 8.6 rating about such a horrible joke makes me wonder about the people who have rated it up to now.

But if you actually kept the $1000 LIQUID (not as in beer, as in usable flowable money), you would have $1000 today. OR put it in a 5% CD, you would have $1050.
