Moon crater now named after Michael Jackson

The man who created the moonwalk now has a moon crater named in his honor. The Lunar Republic announced Monday that the Posidonius J crater in the Moon's Lake of Dreams (Lacus Somniorum) has been renamed Michael Joseph Jackson. The 13.5-mile-wide crater is adjacent to a 1,200-acre parcel owned by the King of Pop.

Yes, you read that right. Michael Jackson owns property on the moon. Lots of it. In fact, he was among the largest private owners of moon property, according to the lunar registry. Don't laugh, it was a good investment.

He bought the Lake of Dreams property for $27.40 per acre in 2005. Real estate in that area — which is zoned for proposed tourism (T-1), scientific industrial (S-1), operations base (O-1) and light industrial (L-1) — is now selling for 25 percent more now than it was four years ago.

Here is Michael's claim to the Lake of Dreams property, followed by a photo of it. One of these days we're all going to be going there for vacation ...

Wait...if Michael owns part of the moon, and after his Memorial, no one knows where the body went so could it be possible that he could be buried on the moon, it's a crazy thing, but it just crossed my mind >_>
