    Thanks for this. Now I don’t feel bad paying $5 per pound.

    At least if you are lost at sea, there will be a lot of people looking for you.

    But Bitcoin has neither weight nor density, so no amount of Bitcoin will be sufficient.

    They both weigh the same, but I think that the ten pounds of lead would be a lot easier to carry.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Archimedes yet...

    Bone is close to neutrally buoyant, so ten pounds of Archimedes won't help at all.
