Jabba needs to get himself a set of scales, put a pound of lead in the "con" side and then see how many weightless things he has to add the "pro" side before the scales tip in his favour. Sourcing weightless things should be easy, he just has to imagine them and then pretend to carefully place them in the pan. He can then stand back, make a note of the results (as opposed to his normal research methodology, which is to assume whatever it is he's done supports his conclusion) and repeat. Ad infinitum.
