I had considered the Archimedean method but didn't know that heads are as
dense as water. If I didn't have density information, how might I do it?

For example, suppose my doctor tells me I need to lose 50 pounds, and I'm
trying to decide whether to do it by diet and exercise, or just take the
easy weigh out and have a leg amputated. Since my leg might not weigh 50
pounds, I'll have to lose some weight by exercise before the amputation.
How will I know how much to do?
