    Pounds, frequently abreviated as Lbs, is a unit of force in the assorted variations of the Foot, Sec, Pound system. Corresponding units of mass are the Slug and Pound Mass (Lbm).
    Force of 1 Pound applied to a mass of 1 Slug results in an acceleration of 1 Foot / Second^2
    Force of 1 Pound applied to a mass of 1 Pound Mass results in an acceleration of "g" ie 32.2.... Feet / Second^2

    I was dragging a heavy chain down the street when somebody asked, "Why are you dragging that chain?"

    I asked him if he ever tried pushing one.

    I should have asked him if he ever tried shoving one.

    Yeah, but loose lips sink ships. Same with fingers.
