Okay, I have to know....if a ton is 2,000 lbs., then how can a ton of feathers weigh more than a ton of bricks? They would both be 2,000 lbs.


the feathers and bricks thing works if the bricks are gold or silver bricks as those would be troy pounds which are a bit lighter than Avoirdupois (common) pounds in which the feathers would be measured. Thus, 2000 (avoidupois) pounds of feathers would weigh more than 2000 (troy) pounds of gold bricks. Though I've always seen this as deceptive, since I've never heard of a troy ton, but there are troy ounces and pounds.

Dwarf hamsters are tiny, cute animals that make fantastic pets for just about anyone, especially children and families. They fit in the palm of your hand, they are inexpensive and if you train them when they are young, they will be your buddy for life!
