### Which weighs more feathers or a pound of lead?

That depends how many feathers you have. If you have more than a
pound of
feathers, then they weigh more tha a pound of lead. But if you lose
some of your
feathers and have less than a pound remaining, then they weigh less
than a pound
of lead.
This entire discussion assumes that your feathers and your lead are
on the same planet.
