Mass Can Never Be Created Nor Destroyed: How This Law of Physics Applies to All of Us

In physics, there is an understood law that states that mass can never be created and can never be destroyed. What does this exactly mean? Let's use a wooden box as an example. If I am to burn down an entire wooden box into ash inside a special container, and I measure its weight, I will get exactly the same weight of the box before it got burnt and after, meaning the box never was destroyed. It just changed into different forms of mass because it caught on fire. And thanks to my discovery of T=E=M (#thoughtisenergyismass) I now know that this particular law of physics applies to all of us in every day life.

Below I listed a few random masses that some of us may have owned or may still own today. Take a good look:
