Better than the stock market?

  1. If you bought $1000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.

    If you bought $1000 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, and traded in the cans for the nickel deposit, you would have $79.

    My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

    Hey Kewl!

    In PA, we don't get paid 0.05 cents per can. Same in Ohio. You get paid per pound of Aluminum at a recycling/junk yard.

    And I think IC Light is pretty darn good beer!

    IC---IC LIght---that's not beer. I am a Labatts drinker. Hey, I think Erie is closer to Canada than Pittsburgh. And it a short drive to New York to recycle (5 cents a can.)

    Not big on light type beers or those made in the USA, with the exception of microbrews. Budweiser is probably one of the worst ones Ive tried. I am patriotic, but just cant make good beer anywhere.

    Eichbaum and Paulaner or Sharff are probably my favorite. straight from the tap of course (less preservatives and a better taste). Guinness from tap or from a glass bottle (not from a can) is also great. sorry just picky about my beer.

    You beer people may as well leave a full urinal sitting in a hot room for about 12hours and then chill it and all taste the same. Uh, at least that's what kewl told me

    I prefer a white russian & buttery nipples..or heck, a blue hawaiian and an erect ...uh, nevermind

    Why mix liquor when it tastes perfectly good as it is. Nothing like a nice glass of Grand Marnier or Cointreau at room temperature , no ice. Although sometimes jungle juice livens up parties. And the extra $0.25 Bicardi shot from a Pina Colada on the Beach in Puerto Rico (those who have tried this know what I mean) can be quite intriguing.

    Like wines, Each different type of Beer has a unique taste. One can tell the difference between the same beer from tap and from bottle. Good beer does not have or has about the same diuretic effect as water.
    Try a Guinness and then a Milwakees Best and tell me if there is a difference.
