    I want to charge her for the excess radiation I get in summer. I am damaged by the cost to cool my house. :D

    Since we've all been using it for years without any payment to anyone, we all have a legal easement of use. So much for her claim. ;)

    how about all of the people that got sunburn and cancer? too much responsibility and too many lawsuits involved in owning the sun. there could also be a problem as one could claim the space the sun occupies or better yet claim the milky way galaxy and charge her rent for the sun being there. it would be interesting to see her trying to move it to avoid rent charges.:cry::p

    sometimes people take ownership and possession too seriously in thinking that all things are subject to them.

    Now the Gov needs to come in and tax the hell out of her based on the "value"

    Make an example out of her....

    I'll make a deal with her. She can pay me rent for living on MY planet (yea, I got papers too, LOL!), and I'll pay her tax for solar energy. Seems fair.

    :cool:
