It's about 60 times as heavy as a Golf Ball
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 57.65 times the weight of a Golf Ball, and the weight of a Golf Ball is 0.0174 times that amount.
(per R&A USGA Rules of Golf; maximum rule weight)
According to the Rules of Golf (as approved by the United States Golf Association and the Rules Committee of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of Saint Andrews), golf balls must weigh no more than 11.810 fluid drams (ʒ). Golf balls are not required to have the familiar dimpled pattern, but the design has been popular since its invention in 1905 because it reduces drag while increasing lift.
It's about one-sixty-fifth as heavy as a Reindeer
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.02 times the weight of a Reindeer, and the weight of a Reindeer is 62.5 times that amount.
(for Rangifer tarandus granti, adult, bull) (a.k.a. Caribou) ()Rangifer tarandus)
An adult, male reindeer weighs between 42,600 fluid drams (ʒ). Reindeer undertake a lengthy annual migration, with some herds traveling up to 5,000 km.

To all those observing, Merry Christmas from the Measure of Things.
It's about one-seventy-fifth as heavy as The Heart of a Blue Whale
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.01 times the weight of The Heart of a Blue Whale, and the weight of The Heart of a Blue Whale is 77 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
(for a 2014 specimen)
The heart of a blue whale weighs about 51,000 fluid drams (ʒ). These hearts pump an estimated 7,100 L (1,875 gal) of blood through the whale's massive body.
It's about 80 times as heavy as a Light Bulb
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 78 times the weight of a Light Bulb, and the weight of a Light Bulb is 0.01 times that amount.
(a.k.a. lamp) (for A19-size, 60w, incandescent bulb by Bulbrite; package weight)
A standard, sixty-watt light bulb weighs about 8.80 fluid drams (ʒ). The tightly-coiled filament inside a bulb of this size would measure about 579mm if uncoiled and stretched out.
It's about one-eighty-fifth as heavy as a cubic meter of Snow
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.01 times the weight of a cubic meter of Snow, and the weight of a cubic meter of Snow is 83 times that amount.
(Freshly fallen, standard conditions; measurements taken in Norway, 1965-68)
One cubic meter of freshly fallen snow under standard conditions weighs an average of 59,000 fluid drams (ʒ). Assembled in 2008, the world record largest snowman was constructed of 1,500,000,000 fluid drams (ʒ) of snow and stood 37.21 m (122.1 ft) tall.
It's about one-ninetieth as heavy as a Pig
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.01 times the weight of a Pig, and the weight of a Pig is 91 times that amount.
(Domestic pig, Sus scrofa domesticus, a.k.a. S. domesticus) (adult)
Domestic pigs weigh between 64,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The titular character "Babe the pig" in the 1995 family film was played by 48 different American Yorkshire piglets due to the length of filming and the rate at which piglets reach adulthood.
It's about 100 times as heavy as a Battery (AA)
In other words, 681 fluid drams (ʒ) is 110 times the weight of a Battery (AA), and the weight of a Battery (AA) is 0.009 times that amount.
(Alkaline)
An "AA" size battery weighs 6.20 fluid drams (ʒ). AA batteries came into common use during World War II and were given their name by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 because they were smaller than the "A" size batteries which were invented first.
