I claim ownership of the air.

STOP BREATHING OR I'LL SEND CHUCK NORRIS AFTER ALL OF YOU.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

I read this somewhere else, I don't remember where, but there's a guy who apparently owns most the planets this way. However, as we aren't mining the sun, and it is forced upon us, she can't charge. Like a neighbour can't charge you for lighting if they shove a spot light in their garden. In fact, I think someone should take her to court for nuisance, waking them up in the morning every day

But yeah, I don't think there's any legal way to implement a tax, so she's crazy on that front. If she technically legally owns the sun, oh well. At the same time, I'm sure if lawyers needed to, they would find a case against her owning the sun, and most juries would happily accept that.

Wow. That's pretty much all that I can say. It's rather funny that she seems to think that this will all work out.

All I can say is that if she's the owner of the sun, I want her to make her sun stop giving me sunburns in the summer, and stop drying up all of our crops.

This is hilarious, but she's kind of in the right mindset. She wants to charge everyone for using the sun and use the money to help end world hunger, etc. Right idea, but wrong logic. It's not possible, and well, no court in their right mind would help with that.


She whispered to her own reflection "I will be strong."

Sometimes things just happen.

It seems odd to want to help poverty-ridden, starved countries by charging them to pay money, just to take that money and give only 10% for world hunger. While 10% of whatever this free would be certainly rakes in lots of money, it's only 10% being used for the thing she's partially justifying the fee for. But for a fee to even occur, it has to be enforceable and I don't see how this fee can be enforced. You'd have to literally monitor all individuals 24/7 to see how long they're in the Sunlight for. Besides, do people who receive sunlight through glass but not go outside while also using artificial lighting also count as using the Sun? If I have my bedroom light on and curtains open, which am I using or is it both? If I close the curtains partway so it's not lighting the area of the room I'm in, am I still using it because when I look in that direction, the Sun and artificial lighting both light it up. Putting a fee on it is a joke.

I'm just going to assume that she has a staggering inferiority complex.

Also, I look forward to suing her for sunburns, skin cancer, drought, and other less-than-admirable circumstances that can be traced back to the existence of the sun.

Lol... clever, but stupid at the same time...

Right, my take on the situation. I claim ownership of all air on earth, gona start putting it in plastic bags and charge people to breath.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

As Spanish domestic law isn't binding on the majority of countries, or the Universe as a whole for that matter, I think we're pretty safe. That said, it and the other examples people have come up with does remind me of the canned air scene in Spaceballs...

That headline just sounds like a joke... It reminds me of "man catches shark with bare hands; blames vodka".

I claim ownership of the moon, I intend to sue NASA for trespassing.
( oh wait, some guys owns it already apparently. I'll just steal it.)

It's ridiculous and funny at the same time.

She's clever for claiming ownership of it but stupid for thinking she can charge use for using it and like people have said, tons of people could just sue her for the damage sun causes so everything she made in charges, she'd lose.
