Woman Lays Claim to the Sun

It's not the heat; it's the humidity!

(Dec. 1) -- Would you want to own a property that's older than the dinosaurs? Along the lines of billions of years old? Well, a woman in Spain has laid claim to the sun.

Duran told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that she decided to try to become the sole owner of the sun when she heard about how Nevada entrepreneur Dennis Hope posted a similar claim in 1980 with the United Nations for ownership of the moon and proceeded to sell acres of lunar real estate -- not exactly a traditional holiday stocking stuffer.
