Shamelessly pulled from BBC radio this morning but I liked it.

£1000 of shares invested in HBOS 1 year ago - current value $4.21

£1000 invested in beer 1 year ago - recycled value of aluminium tins today £240.

Yay beer!

It's hard to believe you can get 24% back for recycling the can... how can the beer+profits cost only 3x as much as the raw materials of the packaging?

Obviously, wasting time on MacNN has them both beat hands-down.
