Spanish Woman Claims to Own the Sun, Will Charge Fees for its Use

A woman from Spain said she had registered the star at a local notary public as being 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, she added.
She wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund, another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.
"If there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's wellbeing, why not do it?"
