in pound sterling you would get 14 average size feathers for your money. this would also buy 2/3rds of a brick. so the answer is the bricks. 2/3rds of a brick is heavier than 14 feathers.

a pound is a pound it maters not what it consists of !

I'm not really sure about this, but my answer would be the same. Both weigh a pound, so they weigh the same as well. It's like a pound of nail, over a pound of cottons!;)

Another blond joke right? Fortunately I'm not blonde. Unless you are playing with British pounds, a pound is a pound, they both weigh the same.

That was a joke. Their money is also called a pound note. It is a piece of paper. No it does not weigh a pound.

My understanding is that both objects weigh the same. The only difference comes when both objects are dropped. According to the laws of motion and physics, two objects of different masses and weight, will fall at the same rate. This in mind, only occurs when no wind resistance takes places.

They weigh the same... one pound! You'll just have more fun with a poind of feathers than a pound of bricks. But not the mess with the pound of bricks as with the pound of feathers. i saw a show Trading Spaces and they put feathers on the wall - literally covered the wall with feathers (instead of wall paper) so the options are limiteless!

I couldn't believe it. The designer was Hildie - and the feathers were yellow!! All on one wall! The owners were not thrilled, but weren't to excited about it either! Can you imagen pulling all athose feathers off to repaint or to sell the house! Yikees!!!

They both weigh the same. There would have to be more feathers than bricks, of course, but a pound is a pound.

The real question is, if you were driving across the ocean on a jet ski and the wheel fell off, would it still take the same number of pancakes to cover a dog house?

jetski's dont have wheels first off, but as long as the dog house hasnt' changed and i assume it would still take the same number of pancakes to cover the dog house, for whatever reason you would want to cover a dog house in pancakes, please fill me in.

that is a silly question. I hope none of us had to think on it too hard or long. lol. 16 oz of feathers or a pound of bricks - come in at the same weight, though it would take a lot more feathers to create a pound than it would bricks which may require only a portion of one brick, huh?

I have an African Grey Parrot. I'll start saving her feathers as she loses them and get back to you when they add up to a pound. It may take awhile, she's not very big!

Ahhh you didn't even trick anyone. I thought I would see what some peoples answers were but everyone was paying attention. Like everyone else a pound is a pound it doesn't matter if it's a pound of feathers or bricks. Have a great day.

Isn't a pound a pound? Just because it has more volume doesn't mean anything. This is a very good question. It makes one think. ((hugs))

If the feathers are weighed in the vacuum they will be heavier than the bricks.

Actually, in a vacuum there is no weight so the Question is moot.

My answer here would be Yes. A pound is a pound like most of our fellow Mylotter here say...no matter what they are they are the same weight, although if you asked me which would I rather lay my head down on I would say feather rather than on the bricks...but that is not the question the question is the weight so I would say they are the same...

Hi Sissygrl, like someone else said, the answer is yes. A pound is a pound. But if I was to have one drop on my toe I would chose the feathers.

This is actually a very tricky question. A pound could mean either weight or worth or money (British Pound). If you mean the pound weight then my answer is "yes". If it is the pound currency then my answer is "no." :-) A trick answer for a trick question. LOL!
