So the world economy is kinda sucking down the drain right now—greedy, short-sighted Americans, et cetera, et cetera.
My friend Nick at Transworld emailed the bellow message to me (the above photo is graffiti outside Nemo). It's sorta funny, sorta dumb. A bad chain email, really. But fuck, you obviously have time so read it.
"If you purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago you'd have $49 today. If you purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you'd have $33 today. If you purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you'd have $0 today. But if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer and turned in the aluminum cans for a recycling refund, you'd have received $214.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-K eg."
i took this of Jennifer Shrowski's myspace. i thought it was pretty humorous so i added it.
