can you gain more than a pound of weight?

A woman to whom I am married says yes... I say no.
I bought her a one pound Hersey Bar and asked her to demonstrate. She declined.
How can I know the truth?

Put her on a scale. Check weight.
Hand her one pound candy bar.
Check weight-scale will read X+1.

The laws of physics exist and apply everywhere, even in the female brain.

she agrees with me that if she eats a pound of lettuce she cannot gain more than a pound.

But chocolate... she says she will gain more than a pound.

I tried the "hold it in your hand on the scales... now hold it in your stomach on the scales" thing and she is unswayed.

depends on how soon after eating either that you do a weighing.

Not only will she gain more than 1 pound, the weight gain will be immediately seen by everyone in the world.


There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of curious idiots out there.

A pound of lettuce weighs the same as a pound of chocolate.

The question really is do the universal laws of physics and thermodynamics apply in arguments with wives?

The answer is no. They just don't.

You just gotta get used to that.

Logic sort of goes out the window too.

Ask her these simple questions:

Hun,
How much does a pound lead weigh? ( help out a little lol)

How much does a pound of water weigh?

How much does a pound of feathers weigh?

How much does a pound of chocolate weigh?

:laugh: :laugh:

If you weigh her immediately after, then yes. If you wait a few hours or a day however, she may weigh more than a pound heavier. Also depends on if she exercises.

Trick question. She'll lose weight from puking after eating a pound of chocolate.
