my english teacher once asked me a question(not relating to english)

#1
one time my english teacher was like "when u own property do u just own above ground or do u own all thats beneath it? if there was oil or sumthin underneath ur house would u own that too?
#2
No.
the government would find a way of owning it.

Your English teacher has horrible spelling. And I believe you do own the oil, but the only thing to do is sell it.

how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

You'd own it, but then the government would make the bank foreclose your house and if you can't pay it off then take your oil.

Think about it this way, you're allowed to dig on your own lawn right? So you DO own all the soil beneath, but the government would probably take it away somehow if you had oil under it.

But then what about the land on the opposite side of the world? Do you have to share your oil?

The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die

I think you'd just own it to the center of the earth.
But then theoretically if scientists found a way to get there and end up under your land, you can arrest them for trespassing? lol.

You own the plot of land. Therefore anything within its designated area is yours. Excluding, say, frisbees or balls that other people accidentally throw in there.
Demolition hands.... Got 'em!

you only own 10 feet down, which means you can't go anywhere past your basement, unless its for repairs. at least in canada thats how it is. I only know this because a similar case popped up in alberta, where a farmer somehow found oil under his land, and the government seized it because it was more than 10 feet under.

But surely they would need to reach the oil through his ten feet of land?

It depends on your country.

In some countries you own to the centre of the earth in others you get a certain depth.

I can't see the point in owning to the centre of the earth. Do you own the air above your house too?
