Woman Claims to Own the Sun

Angeles Duran, a woman from Spain, has laid claim to the Sun. She argues that there's no international law to prevent her action:

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.

"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."

Okay woman, if I got a sunburn or even a skin cancer from the sun, you're gonna pay for it and it's all on you. Thanks.
For now, go make me a sandwich
