It's an idiotic idea, if you ask me.

There is a guy who sold plots on the moon and in now a millionaire because of it. You go to his website and buy a plot and a certificate is sent to you in the mail. Two former American presidents have bought a site on the moon. He is literally a millionaire because he sold imagination, an idea. There was a woman in spain who legally claimed the sun some how and wanted to charge the world for the use of the sun, what she didn't think through was that people could sue her for getting skin cancer. All this **** is completely retarded. If there was something of real value like a substance to provide energy like helium 3 on the moon which can be used as a more stable gas in nuclear fission then America certainly won't be buying it. They'd kill anyone else trying to get it first and protect it from anyone else. If they do that well then they own it. You put a random barrier around anything then claim that, it's yours. If you can do that, keep telling people it's yours and protect it then people will think it's yours. It's no more yours than it is mine. It's nobody property.

You think you own that dog? it's a novelty of the ego. Banks suck you dry of the concept of ownership. They are like that **** of a kid who makes up random rules in his own favor because he too lazy and stubborn to play the rules of the game everyone is playing. The banks just add interest on borrowed money. Loan money away and make more when it comes back. Economics is just an over complicated game of monopoly that people take too seriously. Some people commit suicide because of it. It's ****ing ridiculous. There is no money. Utilize the positives of money can bring, the negative don't exist.

I'll buy a land on Jupiter.

Anybody here has experitse in building houses on 10 000 K liquid metallic hydrogen and 200 GPa of atmospheric pressure?

I guess I'll need a good air filter. Damn methane and ammonia. Don't want to breath on that stuff. It could be dangerous.

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...

That is the most ridiculous idea I have ever heard. The planets if they are habitable are most likely all read owned by their inhabitants. It is like haveing an alien lay claim to OUR planet, as they 'Purchased' it, and probably decided the native inhabitants are in the way of the wealth they could get from this planet, and we are conveniently exterminated. I doubt aliens on other planets give a toot about earthling laying claim on their world, and those rich bozos would probably end up in their zoo or lunch for some alien beast.
Just who will be the seller? I think the more money some have the less their braincells become.

I think it's funny. We think that we are so goddamned powerful, so unstoppable, that we can lay claim to anything we wish.

I fear the day (if it comes) when an extraterrestrial civilization much more powerful and technologically advanced than our own completely mops the floor with our primitive technologies.

People already sell stars. It's not as if they actually own it or anything, it's a scam to fleece money out of gullible people.

Give me 30 bucksand I'll ship you a certificate that says you own the Earth.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
