I found this to be awesome,funny & out of the world..Thought of sharing.... Lemme know you support her?

Spanish woman selling plots of land on the sun for £1 sues eBay for breach of contract after the auction site closes her down..
  • Maria Duran began selling square-metre plots on the sun two years ago
  • For bargain price of 74p buyers were even sent a certificate of ownership
  • But eBay found the Spanish mother's ad violated policy and shut it down
  • Now Ms Duran has won right to take eBay to court for breach of contract

Link?

Does she have the right to sell these plots? Or is she selling something that doesn't exist?

Ms Duran claims she is using a loophole in the ‘Outer Space Treaty’ that states no countries may claim sovereignty over celestial bodies, [..]

Many people are obviously ignorant of this fact as she claims she received 600 orders worth €1,200 (£883) before the page was closed by eBay who deemed it a scam.

She is now claiming €10,000 (£7357) compensation from the company.

Holy f*ck. :headbanger:

I saw a collection of bottles with AIR from different countries. I thought it's a joke while I met a seller offered the air from Okinawa. lol

Really, I don't see anything illegals in this.
You buy a piece of color paper. When you buy a card you do the same. lol

Is it scam? No, it's your choice. It's something as selling an indulgence centuries ago.

Maybe we should not bash the concept too much folks lol. This sector of opinionated buyers are the ones that help keep us fastlaners in business by purchasing our products and services.....That's what fascinated me so much about marketing. It never gets boring.....;)

Well said!

The Moon the Sun, we like to sell nature. We've been doing this for quite awhile. :) One day some business man will create a way to stop people from looking at the moon and sun, and start charging for night time and day light. :) Not to mention air we breathe.

Already a usual occurence.

An uncle of mine got suckered into a scam, pumping money into development in Nanjing or some town in China. Could get some benefits introducing downlines to it.

The newspapers announced it was a scam. A Ponzi.
Anyway it should have been pretty obvious already:

a) Individuals don't invest in development projects unless they are Donald Trump or Li Ka-Shing.
b) You don't run the show. Commandment of Control screwed. No Control, the ship hits the sandbar.
c) My uncle didn't really have the big bucks. He basically bet the ranch on it. Now he has to chase after downliners for an investment gone bonkers. Only people with the millions like MJ can afford higher-tier investments like IPOs or real estate not openly offered to the public. Those higher-tier investments not only require big bucks, but are cleaner and have better chances of making a splash.

I thought God gave nature, air and food for free in the first place. These scumbags ... :mad:
