Wtf is a meter Obviously I’m joking. I think they should make it a priority in elementary school to know both the metric and imperial systems, especially in the United States. School in general needs a massive restructuring.

Also the design of the building, it's ever widening sections on the trip down will inhibit the penny considerably.

Let me save you the trouble it takes 16-127 joules to penetrate a skull of a sheep or a cow. (Don't have info on human skulls) A 9mm. bullet would have 541.5 joules of energy, while a penny dropped from the Empire State building would only have 9.3345 joules... So....ye (All assuming no air resistance)
But what if you drop a bullet?
