How do you measure the weight of your own head?

To determine the volume of your head, fill a bathtub up to the rim and carefully immerse yourself in it completely - including your head. Collect the water that spills over the rim and measure its volume. This is the volume of your entire body. Then repeat the exercise, but this time keeping just your head above water.
