comment Is it possible to lift yourself off from the ground?
Taken as what the open should have said then no because you can not pick yourself up in this manner unless you have a higher mass objects to offset the force. The wording is very non-specific.

Using your wrist as a fulcrum and pushing your hands down ie straightening your wrist. In the wording of the question this is completely possible.

comment Will a black hole increase the speed of sound above the speed of light in this medium
@RonMaimon: There seems to be a correlation of the propagation of sound and the density of the material. Would we need to adjust the frequency of the sound wave?

Our ability to measure kilograms to any non arbitrary accuracies is extremely limited; therefore the determination of associated mass described in kilograms is innacurate.
