weight : Gay & Black Glossary

weight
the force that gravity pulls your naked body toward the centre of the earth proportional to your mass. In the US, people give their weight in pounds, but the rest of the world uses kilograms. A kilogram is 2.205 pounds. In Britain, weight is sometimes measured in stone, where a stone is 14 pounds. Some smartass might even tell you his weight in Newtons, since Newtons are the unit of force, where kilograms are the unit of mass.
