Which is heavier, 1000 pounds of gold or 1000 pounds of feathers?

Just for fun purposes.

Answer: [Depending on how you think, you may get another answer.]

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.
