Hoorah for maths!

It's actually a regular thing in games I'm in. Very often the characters talk in mechanics, rather than in-universe terms, with the point that they really are using in universe measurements, we just have no clue what those would be.

I did that myself...
GM: "... and then a human woman comes in the room ... most beautiful woman in the room ..."

And my brain "Wait what? 6 charisma is maximum for humans. I myself look human and have charisma 7 with... that means she must have XXX or isn't human.
DANGER! DANGER! DANGER!"

"So what you're saying is"

"She's way too hot to be a woman!?! She has to be a man!"

That's an actual medicial condition, if you didn't know. Some people are immune, flat out immune, to Testosterone. For Baby boys, it means they never develop as boys, literally. Even in the womb, their testes never drop, and they never grow a penis, instead growing a "fake vagina".

And, because they're immune to Testosterone, it, for some reasons, turns into estrogen, making them look like incredibly hot females.

600 pounds is decent but not massive. That's achievable as a light load with 31 strength and no carrying capacity boosters.

Without getting up to weird shenanigans, 31 strength is rather difficult to achieve as a single enemy for a <10th level combat (assuming you're still a medium humanoid)
That said, a goliath with maximum starting strength could have 600 as a light load at 26 strength, which only requires 2 stat ups from levels/hd (i.e. around level 8) and a +2 item... and of course getting that 10% chance to have 18 base strength.

Or has the ability to throw things that are a medium load which puts the required STR score down to a 27..... War hulk, cancer mage, template stacking or size shennagians are probably still involved somehow.

There's also ways to just flat-out increase carrying capacity. Some magic items do it, for cheaper than increasing strength score directly. And while not applicable in this case, being quadruped adds a multiplier to all your carrying capacity limits as well (I don't know it off-hand, mind you).

At this point, they've also proven that "anything less than broken isn't a challenge", so notable enemies are probably getting quite a bit of otherwise-impossible buffing

I regularly like to make characters, particularly barbarians, in pathfinder that use both of two items that increase carrying capacity. One increases your strength score by an effective eight for the purposes of carrying capacity. The other triples it. Combined with a barbarian's rage and some decent points into strength, as well as an enlarge spell if I'm a bloodrager or multiclassed, and I usually have characters that can lift a few tons.

When you can lift 2-3 tons, lifting becomes a very versatile tool.

There's nothing quite like ripping a tree out of the ground to use as an improvised weapon.

Or carrying a balista/cannon around as insurance. Or opening a castle gate despite it being locked. Or any number of other really fun things. It really is the hammer that turns the world into nails.

Nothing can't be solved with enough lifting force.

The Heavyload Belt and Muleback Cords? I love those items! Especially on mounts. I had a Wasp Rider build whose mount could carry the entire party, plus a party member's two miles, PLUS the cart full of their goods, and only barely test the limits of its Light Load. All thanks to a Heavyload Belt

The whiskey peak arc was so meh in my memory that I'm really pleased how entertaining it has been here. Either I'm forgetting a lot or OP:GL3.5 is really sprucing it up nicely.
