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.

If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Northern Rock three years ago, you would have £0.00 today.

But, if you had purchased £1,000 worth of beer one year ago at Tesco,
drank all the beer, then taken the aluminium cans to the scrap metal dealer, you would have received a £214.00.

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

Have you got any more facts?
Just to go off at a slight tangent, if you'd bought £1000 of shares in a company called Novacyt (NCYT) 6 months ago .... you'd now be sitting on approx £57 000 ..... the stuff that dreams are made of :)
Obviously this (and variations) appeared back in 2008 during/following the Financial Crisis based on the fact Lehman Brothers precipitated the Crisis and has not existed since then.

yes, good one that has done the rounds for a while.
A pedant might point out though that if a can of beer costs for example £1 you'd be lucky to get 1.4p per empty can never mind 21.4p, (and that assumes you can get a tonne's worth of cans) but I don't want to be the one to mention it
