Today's financial advise


Recommended Posts

I've got this problem. Whenever anybody posts a joke or a story or a meme with math in it, I do the math.

 

Beer cans are worth a nickel each. $214 worth of nickels is 4,280 nickels.

 

You can get 4,280 beers for $1,000? I don't even think you could get that much Meister Brau, which is pretty much the cheapest crappiest beer out there, for $1,000.

 

 

Added: just did a little research. I was figuring empty cans at a nickel, because that's the deposit they charge, but if you had to pay a deposit you wouldn't make anything. The advice was selling the empties for scrap.

 

There are 28 12 oz beer cans in a pound. And the average price for empty beer cans today is 60 cents a pound. That makes it just a wee bit over $0.02 each. That is more than 10,000 beer cans. 10,000 beers for $1,000?

 

Beer prices I've seen, in the stores by the case, run around 75 cents each. For $1,000 you get just a shade over 1300 beers. That would be less than $30 when you cash them in.
