Dumbfounded

So, apparently, you can buy plots of land on the moon. I saw it on 60 minutes tonight.

What the fuck??

A guy in Arizona decided to write to the Russian and United States governments informing them that he was putting in a land claim on the moon. He never heard anything back so has been selling assorted sized plots - and the bugger has earnt himself 9 million so far.

I don't know what disturbs me more, the fact that there is a looney out there making a legitimate living out of selling parts of the moon, or the fact that there are that many fricking thick heads that have paid out CASH for a section on the moon. Good luck getting building consents!! Or a plumber!!

I was going to reply Jules but after reading wanna be slimmer's attempts I fell about laughing and forgot what I was going to say.

Jules...wha-hey, I have a bridge over the Thames River in London that I just put up for sale...cheap.

A gals got to support her sex, porn addiction. Do you know how much money lap dances cost these days? Yeez, but hey, they're worth every penny.

So if any of your readers just happen to need a bridge...let me know.

Hey Jules, it would make a great Christmas gift for that person that almost has everything.

Ciao babes...you rock.

Uhuh. There is a national registry for it, has been for years. In 2004 I bought a little bit of land for my ex partner. Sure it's gimmicky.

My favourite though, is naming a star on the international star registry. Now that is legit. I named a star for all my neices and nephews for their christenings.
