It was a trick statement: An oil barrel filled with OIL will weigh that. An oil barrel as typically filled may contain some water.Actually, a 42 gallon oil barrel holds 303 pounds of oil, which weighs 7.21 pounds per gallon.
Your math was wrong because you calculated it based on the weigh of water, which is 8 pounds per gallon.
Oil is less dense than water, that's why it floats on top.
OK, speaking of talking fish. I built this in 1999. Used it as an example of how a database app can be integrated with most anything with a little creativity. Presented it at a software conference.
Yeah, I know... this technology is to "last century"...
time to upgrade big mouth billy bass to either an Alexa function, or maybe even AI so it has a mind of its own....
Hold on - you didn't come up with the original talking fish on the wall, did you?
I don't know what you're referring to. I did the "talking fish" in 1999 at a software conference. The idea came to me while drinking beer. The message was if our company could integrate a database with a talking fish, we can integrate it with anything.
Not bad marketing for a techno-geek, huh?
We actually had one company use the talking fish in a video they sent to all their clients about their services. And I had some therapists reach out to me asking how I did it. They said this would be great to communicate with autistic kids. And, yes, I gave them all the info they wanted.
