Lead Floats (Posted on 2004-02-25) Difficulty: 3 of 5
How can one get lead to float? Assume it is in a lump, not made into a boatlike shape, nor carried in a boatlike device.

Solution a doofus answer | Comment 3 of 33 |

place the lump of lead in a room with a huge fan on the floor that directs airflow upwards and that can create such a current as to overcome the gravitational force exerted on the lead.  with the fan on at the right speed the lead should float in the air. 

bonus doofus answer:  put it in outer space
