Super pedantic trivia question idea: “Sort by mass: a Troy ounce of lead, an ounce of feathers, and a fluid ounce of water.”

Answer: 1 oz feathers (28.35 g) < 1 fl oz water (29.57 g) < 1 oz t lead (31.10 g)

It’s annoying because an idiot just guessing based off the density would get it right.

An idiot wouldn’t even think about the densitys. Also that system sucks ass.
