A Spanish woman says that she now holds the title to the sun and plans to charge you to use it from now on.
Angeles Duran read about a man in the U.S. who registered himself as the owner of the moon and most of the planets in our solar system. Then she got a really bright idea and headed to a notary to register the sun as her property.
She claims that it’s all legal. International law prohibits countries from owning planets or stars, but not individuals. So she has created a document, with the help of a notary, that declares her 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.”
Now Duran says she plans to charge anyone who wants to use the sun, with half the proceeds paid to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the country’s retirement fund. Ten percent will go to research and another 10 percent to stop world hunger. The remaining 10 percent she will keep for herself.
