RE: [GreenYes] Investments in Bottle Bills shown to pay-off better than stocks.
I would love to know where this 'light-hearted' humor originated.

Pardon the light-hearted humor that follows, given recent news (excepting Hawaii) I thought many folks might enjoy this.  (author unknown)

If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.
 
With Enron, of the original $1,000.00 you would have $16.50.
 
With WorldCom, you would have less than $5.00 left.
If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 5 cent deposit, you would have $107 or 10 cent deposits in MI, you would have $214.00.

 Based on the above, the most sound current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
