Everyone has those off-days where you just can't seem to get anything done without messing up:
Maybe you spill your coffee on yourself on your way to work. Maybe you accidentally forgot to wear clean underwear. Maybe you drop your AirPods down a 21-story elevator shaft, which is exactly what happened to Reddit user XxAuthenticxX.
While all hope seemed lost at first (along with XxAuthenticxX's AirPod's…) two helpful maintenance men quickly swooped in and came to the rescue.
And — believe it or not — the AirPods survived the plunge.
Oh, and incase you were like "PICZ OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!1!":
Welp. Now we know how rugged these things are. Thanks, Apple!

Actually, they probably reach critical velocity within the first foot, so they will hit the ground with the same force falling from a table to the floor as they would falling 21 stories.
More research is needed.™
Of course they survived. You could drop them off the Chrysler Building and they'd survive that too, as would most in ear headphones. It's basic physics/terminal velocity calculations.
