Veritasium and Adam Savage from Mythbusters team up to find out if a penny dropped from the Empire State Building can really kill someone on the ground. Can it, or is it just a myth? They test other objects like plastic pens, too.

Try and work it out before watching the video.

I like how the video started out with a particular comment that... ultimately... answered the question.
