Could it be
paper? Or a calender?
It'll float down from the top of a building, but will be destroyed in water.
I thought of this because of @oleslaw's comment about the title being a hint
I think it is
The coworker sitting next to me
I live if you drop me off a building
He never took a day off for being sick.
but I die if you put me in water.
Maybe that is why he smells like that.
You have untill Saturday to figure this out!
He does not work on weekends.
Perhaps it is
Cotton candy. Low terminal velocity, but is dissolved if you put it in water.
I have 2 Ideas for an answer, my hope maybe one of them will be true:
A bird (meaning a regular bird, not a Seabird)-If you drop her out of a building she'll just fly, but if you put her in the water she'll probably die.
A house cat-He will survive the fall thanks to the cat righting reflex ,But he will not survive swimming for a long time because entering the water leads him to rapid exhaustion (especially if he is a spoiled house cat).
Is the answer maybe
Because the ants are so small the gravity affecting them is really tiny. There have been calculations that an ant can fall off the Empire State Building, and still remain unharmed. And naturally if you leave it in the water the ant would drown.
Skylines come alive as they are drop from buildings, they die as they enter the water. Same as base jumpers.
1. Fresh air from falling makes it even bigger
2. Fire dies in water obviously
My answer is
Seeds or plants buds
It will fly in the air, if it gets proper soil and nutrition, it will become a tree(live), otherwise, if we put it in water, it only gets water and died.
