ENJOY BEING AN AUSSIE! Just imagine...
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Qantas 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, drunk all the beer, then turned in the stubbies or cans for recycling, you would have received a return on investment of $214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.
A recent study found that the average Aussie walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found that Aussies drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.
That means that, on average, Aussies get about 41 miles to the gallon!
Makes you damned proud to be an Aussie.
