    THIS is why we should recycle!!!

    If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago they would now be worth £4.95, with HBOS

    Earlier this week your £1000 would have been worth £16.50, and £1000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5, but if you bought £1000 worth of Tennents Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get £214.



    So based on the above statistics the best current investment

    advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.

    Ohh good thinking :thumbsup:

    Thats rubish :thumbsup:

    lol what a nice post!

    would have given you a re for sure

    Tennants can be bought for around £5 for 12 x 440ml cans.
    £1000 = 2400 cans.
    Each can weighs approximately 15 grams.
    Total scrap weight = 36000 grams or 36Kgs.
    Scrap aluminium cans have a value of roughly £800 per 1000Kgs.
    So your cans are worth approximately £28.80 not £214.

    Unless you know where you can buy Tennants for less than 6 pence a can?
    Now that would be a hot deal!!!

    Still better than the other 'investments', plus you would have got some enjoyment out of it, well apart from the big hangover! :thumbsup:
