Proof that it can pay to recycle..

From my lovely wife (and a series of others back to its genius, if sadly now 'anon' originator):

> If you had purchased £1,000 of Northern Rock shares one
> year ago, they would now be worth £4.95.
> If instead you had purchased HBOS shares, earlier this week
> your £1,000 would have been worth £16.50.
> If you'd invested in XL Leisure your £1,000 would now
> be worth less than £5.00.
> However if you'd bought £1,000 worth of Stella Artois
> one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an
> aluminium re-cycling plant, you would currently get £214.
> Based on the above statistics the best investment advice I
> can give you is to drink heavily and recycle.
