A U.S. man was sent to prison for collecting rain water on his own property.
Trust me, I took me a moment to figure out what was going on as well.
In my head, I had the stereotype that an American could do whatever they damn well wanted on their own property – including the right (in some parts) to shoot on site if you trespass. And no one can own the rain over their cold, wet hands.
This all went down in the town of Grey Point, Oregon, where the government had just decided that it now owns the water that falls from the sky.
Or does it?
