this teaser also works for any gas that is lighter than a feather, such as helium or neon. A decent teaser, tho.

Actually, air is not LIGHTER than a feather. If you had enough air, the air would be heavier. The correct wording would be that air is LESS DENSE than a feather.

Also, many people pick up air. They carry it, compressed, in cylinders.
