  • The barrel was filled to the brim with water, and the man stuffed in an inflated beach ball, which would have displaced a lot more water than it weighs.

    A helium balloon, or some other gas that is lighter than the surrounding air that would provide buoyancy.

  • CJS you are today’s winner! Everyone else was over thinking it.
    He put a hole in the barrel to make it weigh less

  • Crabman

    Good one. “A hole” is definitely the best answer.

    The picture is of a wooden barrel, I thought maybe a lit match put into a wooden barrel would cause its weight to drop…
