    I answered Gold.

    You may think it is wrong.

    That is fine with me.

    Well I just changed the answer.

    Logically speaking, they're the same.

    Theoretically, they may not. ;)

    Logically they are not the same. Weights of gold and precious metals are measured differently than the weight of most other things. Gold is measured in troy ounces, where 1 troy pound = 12 ounces whereas a standard pound = 16 ounces, so a pound of gold weighs less than a pound of feathers.
