1. Take one pound of gold and one pound of cotton,
Fuc* Logic, Both are one pound .... why one would be heavier than the other?!

Whether they want to make something else up and use it as a different system of measurement has absolutely no effect on a pound of gold not being a pound of gold.
Nope, it's universally weighed as a Troy. If you think putting it on a normal scale would work, you're wrong.

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.

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.

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?

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 ... "

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.
