Top Ten Ways To Destroy The Earth

Strangelets? Vacuum energy? Hurled into the Sun? Lordy me! What's next?

RE: Top Ten Ways To Destroy The Earth
Let's stay on point and on message:
Religion leads to climate change deniers (because god designed the earth perfectly).
Religion leads to the rapture too, which, if it keeps on not-coming, will probably one day force a pope to help scripture a hand.

Aspiring optimist
Eternal Pragmatist.

RE: Top Ten Ways To Destroy The Earth
Does destroying humanity count ? If it does, how about breeding a very unstable virus in some lab . It should have a high Infectivity and a long incubation period. like this it would spread around most of the world in no time, and be hard to combat...

RE: Top Ten Ways To Destroy The Earth
My favourite way to obliterate this planet would be to detonate a gigatonne nuke in the suns atmosphere.

Send a nuke to the sun with some heat sheilding so it survives the journey. Then detonate within the suns atmosphere.

The suns energy output would be increased for a while by that shockwave. The increased solar wind can strip away the earth's atmosphere, oceans can boil away, leaving behind bare rock. Bye bye little fungus coating inhabiting the surface of that planet.

Maybe that idea is bullshit. In that case the backup plan would be to find a large metalic asteroid 20 km across and play billiards with earth. Pop!

Yeah, nuclear explosions is continuously going on on the sun's surface, so 1 extra bomb won't do it.

OT: Detonate something on the moon to have it drift off? Or drift back up in here!

You will need: nothing

Method: No method. Simply sit back and twiddle your thumbs as, completely by chance, all 200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms making up the planet Earth suddenly, simultaneously and spontaneously cease to exist. Note: The odds against this actually ever occurring are considerably greater than a googolplex to one. Failing this, some kind of arcane (read: scientifically laughable) probability-manipulation device may be employed.

Earth.exe has stopped working, this program will now shut down.

Gotta say, that was a pretty cool list.


Personally, if I had to destroy the Earth, I'd do it with style.
Lets say.. take a standard hydrogen bomb and from the base Fusion warhead design, make a weapon with an explosive yield of a Petaton (one million billion tons of TNT) or so.
If the doesn't destroy the Earth, it'll certainly fuck it up bad.
It'd be fucking expensive and with today's tech, probably impossible but I ask you a question, dear readers: If it was possible, then why the fuck not?

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

That's the kind of stuff that keeps me awake...
