Weight Question - Geniuses Only
What weighs more, a pound of gold or a pound of feathers? Why did you choose your answer?




First one to get it wins a 3 day, 2 night stay in a luxury resort. (You'll also get a free demonstration of our new line of vacuums with chance to buy at a special discount price) Smile

They both weigh the same as a pound of bullshit.

I came to this conclusion by accident, by chance, with no need for a God.


Yay.. I'm off to Blackpool.

Is that on the earth or moon?

And it varies if the wind is blowing.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity.

The pound of feathers is heavier, because gold is measured in Troy ounces, in which a pound is the same as 12 ounces in the Avoirdupois system, where a pound is 16 oz. Thanks for inviting me, but this is only a "knowledge" question, not a "figuring out" question.
I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!
