Destroying The Earth – No Easy Task

| October 2, 2007

The Earth being destroyed... how fun is that?

I will confess I am a lucky man. I was fortunate enough to marry a woman who is in many ways as nerdy as I am, which makes so many aspects of a technical life a lot easier. Thanks to her, we now know of’s top 10 ways to destroy the Earth!

10. Total existence failure
9. Gobbled up by strangelets
8. Sucked into a microscopic black hole
7. Blown up by matter/antimatter reaction
6. Destroyed by vacuum energy detonation
5. Sucked into a giant black hole
4. Meticulously and systematically deconstructed
3. Pulverized by impact with blunt instrument
2. Eaten by von Neumann machines
1. Hurled into the Sun

Not only are these good solid ideas for destroying something on a planetary scale, they also list the likelyhood of accomplishment and main technical hurdles to make it happen. All you mad scientist / evil genius folks out there, get cranking!
