    Engineers and Beer?

    I was reading EEtimes and found this rather interesting (if not imbibing article).

    I don't drink myself but I thought some will find it funny.

    Also do note TOO much beer can bring out the some real problems (some people fight when intoxicated).

    Beer is a wise investment as well, as noted in the quote below:

    "If you had purchased $1,000 of United Airlines parent UAL stock one year ago, you would have $200 left.

    With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000. With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

    But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash. Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

    Beers anyone?"

    To expound on Malcom's quoted wisdom there... any vice is a sound investment... even (especially?) in hard times, people want their "needs" met, be that gambling, drinking, etc.
