Please remit payment to Angeles Duran in Galicia Spain. She has registered ownership of the sun. So every time you use the sun, please send your payment in! http://www.myfoxorlando.com/dpps/news/offbeat/spanish-woman-claims-she-now-owns-sun-dpgonc-20101126-gc_10808147 She got the idea after a man in states registered ownership of the moon and some stars. I wonder if she will be liable if I get a sunburn? I am going to register that Pacific Ocean (not coastline) so everytime a boat/ship goes through they will have to pay a toll.

Hiya laglen, Okay so I live in Spain but I have never heard of this Woman. Shame on her to think that we would go and buy or even think of such a thing (grin). Yes that´s a Spanish Woman alright Angeles Duran. There has been nothing on the News about this either. So I thought you were kidding I know there was a thing going on the Internet where you could "buy" parts of the Moon Landscape and call them your own. But being serious who would want to buy a part of the Sun? The Sun is for everyone it´s free and it´s there no one can own it. Okay so now I am going to say I own the Province of Navarre which is really pronounced Navarra. I should be so lucky to own all of that. Do you have any idea how much this land is worth here a real fortune. So come one all get your pens and paper out. Right stop right there I am only kidding (grin). I hope you get to be rich laglen you surely would be rich with something like that going. Rich for ever and ever. Just imagine what you could do with all that money Okay my lotters just good fun I don´t own anything and that is the honest truth not one single thing. It´s all just a Dream like that silly Woman from Galicia has had doh.

Hiya laglen, Did you really go to Montserrat in Spain the one near Barcelona? That is really beautiful there really impressive. I would love to go there again myself have not had the chance to go past that way in a long while. Yes I would not mind owning that myself. For now just a Photo will suffice. Breathtaking scenery as well around it.

I did, I went in 2001. It was amazing, as well as Barcelona itself - beautiful country and beautiful people!

not a great idea. you would be responsible for feeding ALL the fish and for ensuring there are no squabbles between nations that use the pacific. and cleaning up after oil tankers. aren't you busy enough? personally i'd recommend registering ownership of something far smaller. like a duckpond. or a puddle.

Oh... why am I not surprised that someone might do something as stupid as that. There are people who eat tons of hamburguers at McDonalds and then sue them because of getting obese, so why wouldn't someone do something as registering ownership of the sun and then even try to get profit of it? I'm losing my hope in the mankind more and more every day it passes and every new piece of news I read. I hope she's happy with it but she realizes that half of the world thinks she's a moron.

I wonder which world body you need to register to own the sun and moon and stars. There are many people who go overboard with their love of something. They are certainly creative. You will never know if really people would remit payment to those websites.

I would like to apologize for telling you guys that, but if you get a sunburn or some other disease caused by the uv rays, this lady is not responsible. If you look closely at the sun, you can see the tiny letters that form the sentence "use at your own risk, we cannot be held responsible for any damages done to your retinas, while reading this or any other damages caused by inappropriate use" So this is it, the system got us once again. I just hope, life doesn't get registered too because it's hard to let it go. ~Shogo.

We must get together sometime because I took a licence out on air. Yep, every time you breath you owe me. Trouble is I find it hard to collect from billions of people and the animals don't even have a lawyer for me to sue.

Wow.. some people are ridiculous! See.. here I've been thinking all along that technically we don't really own anything. Everything we have can so easily be taken away from us. The government can take our house because technically they own the land.. that's why we pay taxes on it (rent the land). CPS can take our kids if we're not treating them up to their standards... I mean really, if there's anything on this Earth I do own you'd think it would be the beings that I CREATED and came from MY WOMB.. but no.. if someone were to see me spank one of my own offspring they'd be taken away and given to someone else to raise. But.. I can claim a piece of the world as my own?? Oh.. let's get greedy.. I'll just claim the whole Earth.. let that lady have the sun and some other guy have the moon and stars.. if I own Earth I get to play God and Government.. now you'll have to pay me your property taxes!!

Why so little, Laglen? Why not go for all the oceans on earth, considered to be international waters? Didn't they use to call people like that pirates? The lady in Spain must be connected with the U.N. Her plan sounds somewhat similar... And my response is somewhat similar too. "Bill me and try and collect...I dare you."
