    Nope, it's universally weighed as a Troy. If you think putting it on a normal scale would work, you're wrong.

    Gold is weighed on a different system of measurements. It's weighed using a troy system, and a troy ounce weighs less than a standard ounce.

    You're both right. OP didn't specify. A imperial (avoirdupois) pound weight of gold is the same weight as a pound of feathers but if you were to ask for a pound just about anywhere in the world (including USA, UK etc) they'd give you a troy pound which is almost a hundred grams lighter.

    More Riddles: Keeping this alive.

    What am I?
     
    One by one we fall from heaven,
    Down into the depths of past
    And our world is ever upturned
    So that yet some time we'll last.


    What am I #2.
     

    Kings and Queens may cling to power
    And the Jester's got his call
    But, as you may all discover,
    The common one outranks them all


    Logical riddles now;

     

    A man is on a trip with a fox, goose, and a sack of corn. He comes upon a stream, which he has to cross, and finds a tiny boat which he can use. The problem though, is that he can only take himself and either the fox, goose, or the corn across at a time. It is not possible for him to leave the fox alone with the goose, or the goose alone with the corn. How can he get all safely over the stream?


     

    If I say "Everything I tell you is a lie," am I telling you the truth or a lie?


    couple more
     

    The paragraph below is very unusual. How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about it?

    "Gatsby was walking back from a visit down in Branton Hill's manufacturing district on a Saturday night. A busy day's traffic had its noisy run; and with not many folks in sight, His Honor got along without having to stop to grasp a hand, or talk; for a mayor out of City Hall is a shining mark for any politician. And so, coming to Broadway, a booming bass drum and sounds of singing, told of a small Salvation Army unit carrying on amidst Broadway's night shopping crowds. Gatsby, walking towards that group, saw a young girl, back toward him, just finishing a long, soulful oration ... "


    Einstein Level Riddle.
     
    In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors. In each house lives a person of different nationality. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brands of cigar, and keep a different pet. Who owns the fish? Given below are some clues that will help you solve the riddle.

    • The British man lives in a red house.
    • The Swedish man keeps dogs as pets.
    • The Danish man drinks tea.
    • The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
    • The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
    • The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
    • The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    • The man living in the center house drinks milk.
    • The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    • The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
    • The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
    • The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
    • The German smokes Prince.
    • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
    • The Blends smoker lives next to the one who drinks water.



    The last one fucked me over since I don't see enough evidence in the list to find the answer. I'll put the answer here in hope any of you can explain it.

    Honestly I couldn't do any of them, would love to see some of you try.
    i'm assuming that is the same because we are talking about a pound for both

    There isn't a single E, I know this because a whole french book was made like this, (even though the letter e is extremely common in french), it's called Disparition by Georges Perec
    it was later translated into english in the book A void

    Bring the goose across
    go back to the other bank
    bring the fox across
    bring back the goose
    bring the corn across
    go to the other bank
    bring the corn across

    Yeah, that's why I said the riddle was dumb or something, it's more of a trick riddle than an actual riddle. Obviously it wouldn't make sense to put troy infront of it, but it's clearly not the same units of measurement. Subaru doesn't seem to be able to grasp anything past his Googled answers.
