    i plan on suing her for global warming

    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.

    Lots of precious minerals: Helium, hydrogen, iron...

    Not to mention power potential: Magnetic fields, solar winds, sunspots...

    She could be a pioneer, building geothermal powerplants and solar wind turbines!

    Of COURSE somebody must own the sun.

    Because otherwise the SUN is a form of SOCIALISM.
