A man has a barrel that weighs 20 kilograms. The man then put something in the barrel, and it weighed less than 20 kilograms. What did he put in the barrel?

I would say he put helium in the barrel. Helium weighs less than air so by putting helium in the barrel the overall weight would decrease.

I think he put an activated bomb or grenade in the barrel and blew the bottom out, causing the barrel to weigh less. :)
