Pints per mile....its all in the maths

Post by nethen1 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:17 am

If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines 2 years ago, you would have £49.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in AIG insurance company 2 years ago, you would have £33.00 today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers 6 years ago, you would have nothing today.
If you had purchased £1,000 of shares in Northern Rock 5 years ago, you would have nothing today
But, if you had purchased £1,000 worth of beer one year ago at Tesco's, drunk all the beer, then taken the aluminium cans to the scrap metal dealer, you would have received £214.00.
Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & 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!
Are we stoppin for a brew !

Don't forget 10% of road accidents are caused by drunk drivers !!!!
90% therefore are caused by sober drivers!
Better to be safe, drive drunk?

I've always thought this to myself.....if someone causes an accident by shit driving, then they are breathalysed. If they are over the limit they should be banned, if they are under the limit they should be banned longer.
