Volere la luna


C'e' chi ha comprato appezzamenti di luna, in Germania, e oggi è preoccupato.

Dear Mr. President George W. Bush,

In our local paper of February 1, 2004, I read an article about the plans of the U.S. government to build a space station on the moon. For me this is more than just an ordinary piece of news, because I am the owner of a part of the moon surface. Nearly four years ago I bought an area of 700,000 square meters on the moon. To prove this I include the document of ownership. Reading about your plans I do worry that the future space station might be built on my lot. So I would like to inform you that I might allow the U.S. government to do so, but only if I am paid for that area. If this should happen, I would be ready to enter into negotiations with the U.S. officials.

    credo sia molto preoccupato!

    E' una questione da proprietà transitiva che dovrebbe farmi riflettere. Nono conosco persone normali, che non conoscono persone normali.
