Is this the most ridiculous lawsuit ever?

I've heard of some ridiculous lawsuits in the past, but this one might take the cake. This woman is suing eBay after the online marketplace stopped her from selling plots of land on the sun. You read that right. This lady wants to sell pieces of the star to willing customers, but eBay isn't on board.

This bizarre story started back in 2010 when Spanish woman Maria Angeles Duran claimed and won ownership of the sun. This isn't the first time a person has tried to corner the market on Outer Space real estate. She actually got the idea from an American man named Dennis Hope who claimed rights to the moon, Mars and other planets.

Angeles Duran then began selling plots for €1 ($1.11) per square meter through eBay in 2013 with plans to keep 10% of profits for herself, donate 10% to fight world hunger and donate the rest to Spain. Angeles Duran sold 600 plots before eBay shut down the page, so she sued the site for breach of contract.
