Spanish Woman Claims She Now Owns Sun (didnt buy Uranus)
AFP/FOX NEWS ^ | nov 26, 2010 | afp

Posted on 11/26/2010 6:27:02 PM PST by max americana

(AFP) - After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner -- a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.

Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our solar system.

There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.

"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."

The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be the "owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers."

The problem is, many of the federal courts in THIS country will back her claim and we’ll be paying her for solar power instead of the Arabs for oil. LOL!

Expect a billion lawsuits from starving people that claim she has negligently allowed “her sun” to scorch their crops. Another set to file suit that “her sun” has burnt out various satellites. Another set of lawsuits that will sue her for having “her sun” beam cancer causing radiation onto the entire planet.

If she’s going to be an idiot legally, she will just encourage others to go after her idiotically, legally, too.

Try claiming royalties to the solar energy produced and get another lesson in law.

This genius actually followed an American who now “owns” the solar system. This scam is way better than global warming.

Since she owns it, she’s liable for the damages caused by it.

(Besides, there is a sealed envelope with a postmarked stamp as evidence it was mine before she laid claim to it, therefore she owes me....;^), but I’ll let her pay off all the damages first...hehehehe

That is what I was thinking. I wonder when she is going to make the trip and visit her property. You never know when squatters may move in and take over. hahahahaha

Great! We now have someone to sue when the weather's bad, when there's climate change, when anyone gets skin cancer...
