(Some Nutjobs)   You too can own an acre of the moon, for just 19.99. Better hurry, millions already sold.   ( divider line

I already claimed two square inches of Pluto.

What more do ya need?
2002-11-25 07:02:53 AM  
Yes, I'm sure the US gov't will have the utmost respect for these claims if they ever decide to use the moon for anything.
2002-11-25 07:09:54 AM  
Thought the moon was international territory, owned by everyone on Earth and you can't buy little chunks of it for your very own- much like space is.

Oh, and LtRazak, you're an asshat.

Hey, LtRazak, What's up with that farking link...
I gotta concur with Woodchipper, you're an asshat.
2002-11-25 07:18:23 AM  
how can they be selling portions of MY moon?

i'm gonna sue.
2002-11-25 07:46:48 AM  
Is it commercial or residential zoning?
2002-11-25 07:53:54 AM  
I'd buy that for a dollar!
2002-11-25 08:08:23 AM  
Alreadey own one...
2002-11-25 08:09:03 AM  
...And if anyones interested, I can give you a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge.
2002-11-25 08:20:15 AM  
Is this the old moon or the new one?
2002-11-25 08:28:25 AM  
Just my luck, my acre will be some steep rock-face, and just by dumb luck, Bill Gate's acre will be shoreline to the new Moon-Ocean.
2002-11-25 08:31:02 AM  
I'd rather own a piece of Uranus. Hey, Bass.
2002-11-25 08:33:42 AM  
LtRazak - Gotta go with Ouizel and Woodchipper on this one. You're an asshat. Don't post links to your crappy website that have nothing to do with the thread.
2002-11-25 08:35:44 AM  
LtRazak = A$$HOLE
2002-11-25 08:35:47 AM  
Do not delay your action on this important legal process concerning your property.

Sounds like spam, looks like spam, smells like spam...

FWIW I thought their background on their main page was pretty cool, though. Picture some alien craft sneaking in behind the dark side of the moon...

*back to sleep*
2002-11-25 08:41:16 AM  
Gotta agree with Woodchipper.
Funny, I thought you technically had to "own" something
to be able to sell it ?

On an unrelated topic:
I'm also selling 1 acre plots of the Internet for just $9.99. "Get your piece now, they're going fast !"
2002-11-25 08:43:39 AM  
I claim Antarctica in the name of the good people of Farkistan...

- ya, I vant a soder!
2002-11-25 08:45:50 AM  
Claims to property in space hold no sway. I don't see them as having any property rights when we finally get around to building a base on the Moon
2002-11-25 08:51:14 AM  
This whole thing's as fraudulent as LtRazak link up there. I farking hate scammers.
2002-11-25 09:16:45 AM  
Not only is LtRazak an asshat for posting that site of his. But, look at it. He's also a total loser. bwah hah ha ha what a tech-tard.
2002-11-25 09:18:57 AM

By clicking on that link, you just made Razak's thug followers increase by 1 and become more powerful! Razak now has 1153 thugs and they will be committing street crimes for money within 0 hours and 43 minute..

LtRazak, you're below asshat level, asshat.
2002-11-25 09:19:58 AM  
As far as owning the moon. As I hear it, through a loophole, this guy has actually filed for ownership of the moon. Just as countries and people claimed land in the old days. and, supposedly it is legal. According to him his largest buyer so far are large hotel conglomerate companies.
2002-11-25 09:25:51 AM  
Yay! A greedy corperation looking for suckers backed by--- no governments!

If you act now, you can buy your own acre in heaven as well for only an additional $14.95!

But wait, that's not all. On top of no legal standing you will get a pice fo paper so you show the world that you re a sucker!
2002-11-25 09:29:40 AM  

I'm with everyone else on this one.

ltrazak - you suck the life out of all that is good. i cannot see the sun due to the fact your stupidity is blocking it out.

please find another rock besides Fark to crawl under and die.
2002-11-25 09:44:36 AM  
The asshat that owns this company was on the Howard Stern show a few weeks ago. What buyers don't seem to realize is that defending their claims is entirely in their hands. No government is going to help them. Personally, I'd put my money on the corporation that plants down on the land and says "mine." If they can get to the moon, you gotta figure they'll have friggin laser beams or some other advanced technology that the "true" owner couldn't do anything about.
2002-11-25 10:06:50 AM  
Let's alll buy a piece and send Micheal Jackson there. He can moonwalk every day!
2002-11-25 10:12:13 AM  
On a LtRazak note:

I've reported this asshat to the people who run the game. Hopefully, they'll turn this asshat's account off.

You too can complain:

Give it to this asshat.

What a bunch of b.s. this is...

I'd by an acre of land in Hell before I would buy this crap!
2002-11-25 10:40:45 AM  
FLA Chickie, don't say that too loud, the salespeople will be banging on your door, calling you at all hours trying to sell you a piece...espically if they know you're interested.

Regarding LtRazak:

After reading the FAQ at their site, it seems what he did is the whole point of the "game". As written in the FAQ:


I have created my character, now what do I do?
The first thing you need to do is send your secret link to as many people as possible.

The more people that click on your secret link, the more money your character will generate per turn.

My friend clicked my secret link 3 times, but I only got credit once...

You secret link will only work on the same person ONCE per 24 hours. After the 24 hours is up, you can send the secret link back to your friend and you will get credit if he clicks on it again.</I
2002-11-25 11:01:41 AM  
Ack, didn't close the italics!
2002-11-25 11:14:57 AM  
Soon to be added to the FAQ:


I have only been playing this game for 4 days, posting "secret links" wherever I can, and already my friends all hate me, everyone on hates me, my family hates me, my dog has stopped sniffing my crotch, and I have started receiving UPS packages that tick. Is this normal?

2002-11-25 11:45:02 AM  
Just as long as he doesn't try to sell Europa.
2002-11-25 11:54:08 AM  
Boomslang, so, you're saying this site encourages people to spam?

Oh god....end it now. End it NOOOOOW!

Alto_reed_on_a_tenor_sax, I'm laughing so hard my co-workers think I'm crazier than usual.
2002-11-25 12:30:13 PM  
Looks like they they are pulling these titles to Moon acres from "Uranus," or in this case, "Theiranus."
2002-11-25 02:30:40 PM  
Someone already bought all the moon real estate
