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.

Okay... even I agree that I am stretching it (in terms of the definition of "float"), but...

Shape the lump of lead into a wing (airfoil) and accelerate it through a medium (e.g., air).
