This should be filed under crazy talk category. But I’m just lazy to create another category just for this blog post.
Anyway, a Spanish woman had registered the sun as her property. There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals.
So using this loophole, Ms Angeles Duran, 49, registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.
Now she wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 per cent to the nation’s pension fund. She would dedicate another 10 per cent to research, another 10 per cent to ending world hunger – and would keep the remaining 10 per cent herself.
You might think that this is a smart move. But actually it isn’t.
Since she owns the sun now, those who suffer from skin cancer or any disease/illness related to the sun have someone to sue.
As for the rest of us, we can just can claim that we did not request for her sun’s service and she is free to terminate the sun’s ray on us.
In fact, I’m thinking of counter suing her for providing a service that I didn’t subscribe to. The sun is making me sweat and causing great discomfort. I demand that she stop rendering her sun’s service to me or I’ll sue her for compensation. I think I have a strong case. Maybe I should file a law suit in Spain.
And did I say this blog entry should be classified under crazy talk?
