If I weighed 285 pounds here on Earth, how much would I weigh on the other planets in our Solar System? How about the moons?

I know on Earth's Moon you'd weigh about 47.5 pounds (285/6), and that you'd weigh thousands of pounds on the sun, but that's pretty much all I know.

From around 674 pounds on Jupiter, to about the same as a postage stamp (ref: recent lecture I attended by Sir Patrick Moore - name drop, name drop) on the moons of Pluto.

The following site works out your weight on all of the planets and our moon:

Mercury: 38% of Earth’s
Venus: 91% of Earth’s
Earth: 100% of Earth’s (9.81 meters/second2)
Mars: 38% of Earth’s
Jupiter: 254% of Earth’s
Saturn: 108% of Earth’s
Uranus: 91% of Earth’s
Neptune: 119% of Earth’s
Pluto: 8% of Earth’s

So what this all means is that a person who weighs 100 pounds on Earth would weigh 38 pounds on Mercury or Mars, 91 pounds on Venus, 254 pounds on Jupiter (!!!), 108 pounds on Saturn, 91 pounds on Uranus, 119 pounds on Neptune, or only 8 pounds on Pluto.

 Are all of the moons in our solar system solid or non-gaseous (to differentiate from the four gas planets); the question is essentially are there any moons which are similar in composition to the gas giants? terrestrial?
