Debunking Dumb Myths
Danger Dolan returns with a feature about the 10 dumbest myths about iconic wonders on the planet. Take the Empire State Building in New York City, once the world’s tallest building. A persistent myth surrounding the Big Apple structure is that you can kill someone by dropping a penny on him or her from the building’s roof. That would be an impossibility, since most light objects are caught in a powerful updraft and blown back up to the 81st floor. The small objects not caught in the updraft are blown out to the Hudson River.
