Seems like Helios' chariot has a new owner.

Spanish woman claims ownership of the Sun.

Source: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/101126/oddities/spain_sun_offbeat

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.



PERSONAL OPINION: I hope she knows that her purchase is depreciating in value :p.

Typical leftist mentality... Co-relating two things without keeping in mind the context of the situation.

If you want my view on this, then here it is:

It absolutely ridiculous. She can't own the sun. If states aren't allowed to claim ownership of celestial bodies then I say that individuals shouldn't be either.

Wait...She's gonna charge anyone who uses the sun? In what way does she mean? Simply for going outside? How is she going to prove it?

"It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's well-being, why not do it?" she asked.



Oh dear. Good luck with billing over 6 billion people, dear.

I'm not gonna pay anything and I'm pretty sure that if she confirms something like this no one will pay her and they'll just keep using the sun, then she'll have to bring all the world in the court for using her property illegaly :rolleyes: . . .

I hope no one forces her to put a sign on the surface of the sun, claiming hers new ownership. That might be a bit difficult.:D

is she a Leo? If not they it's invalid. Star signs (Leo, gemini, virgo, etc.) are assigned each of the planets..Leos have the sun. If she's not a leo she CANT :P

Don't you mean typical human mentality? I've seen far too many right wingers do it too as well as left.. both are the exact same in their behavior only with different views. They both generalise the the other side and often loose context of the situation and link different things just to pick a fight.

I'm centre btw before you label me (although I detest having to use a single term for my views) and have been considered both left and right wing depending on the issue.

That is probably her intention (extrapolation from the article.) So I am wondering... Is she going to raise an army to force countries to pay royalties to her :vlol:?

On the bright side, she obviously won't be paying property taxes for her new celestial real estate :p.
