[quote]A man from America has claimed a small patch of Africa, because his daughter wants to be a princess. Jeremy Heaton told BBC Radio 5 live that he had travelled from Virginia with his flag to proclaim the area the "Kingdom of North Sudan". The area lies between Egypt and Sudan, is 800 square miles of arid desert and doesn't belong to any country. He says he has put official requests in with both nations but, as yet, neither have responded. Egypt, Sudan and the United Nations will have to recognise the Kingdom of North Sudan before she's officially the daughter of a king.[/quote] Well... Suppose it makes far more sense than people claiming territorial rights over the Sun.
