If the united states really wanted to...could it put like 500 hydrogen bombs 100 miles under the surface of the ocean, and create a huge tidal wave? lol

Here is what I would do:

requirements:

Fleet of large airplanes/zeppelins
a ........-ton of liquid nitrogen

plan:
Wait for an overcast and/or very dense fog to appear over your major city of choice. Next load up all your nitrogen on the planes/zeppelins so that you can release the gas mid-flight. Take it over the city and release the nitrogen into the clouds. Now, wait for a gigantic ice block to form over the city and let gravity do the rest.

I was really proud of myself for coming up with this scheme until I realized I would probably just make it start hailing. :(

That's got to be one of the most random things I've heard this week.

I only wish I could say the same.

You're the overly clever, but impractical and ultimately unsuccessful super-villain type, aren't you? Why waste 500 good hydrogen bombs creating a tidal wave when you can sell most of them for scrap and use the handful left to do far more economic, military, and moral damage by placing them strategically?

Pfft, n00b. :rolleyes:

Also with the sheer power of the hydrogen bomb, 500 of them would not be necessary.

My friend and I are pretty sure the world will just tip over and we'll all fall skywards until we can't breathe anymore and sufficate, or explode. This was when we were thinking about gravity theory (you fail science if you don't know the difference between law and theory:p) so we were free to think that the reason gravity worked was because the world was right-side up.

I told her to "grab the grass!" but she lives in Arizona, so I was kinda stumped after I realised that there was prolly not gonna be grass around her when and if it happened.

we could just strap one to your chest and have you walk into Iran...

personally, I think all we need is an idea like the movie "the core", except we stop it from spinning... to make it short, we send a vessel into the core of the earth, and with perfectly timed nuclear explosions, halt the spinning of the core, which would destroy earth's magnetic fields and leave us all unprotected from the sun's radiation :)

or maybe just like that siberian meteor - flatten a thousand trees, but you'd be the only one to hear it. ;)

Yeah, you'd probably just succeed in making a lot of steam.

You'd probably turn Earth into a larger version of the moon only crispier.
Or the sheer magnitude alone would ignite our atmosphere and turn Earth into a mini sun.


Just get some anti-matter and have it meet it's equal matter equivalent.

Sniper Sas that would be a very, very bad idea.

The tidal wave one is good though, put 5 or so along an ocean fault near an overpopulated area. I'm not sure if things work like this, but you might even be able to get earth on your side if you trigger a 'quake along side your wave. The other benefit is deployment: succesfully triggering bombs in a populated area would be quite difficult, not to mention getting the bomb there anways. (Although smart terrorists should build the stuff inside of the enemy, and I'm not so sure that is already happening :eek: )

My thought as of late has been that if a couple thousand intellectuals came together bent on destruction, they would be able to suceed in a huge way (maybe a billion casulties). I just don't think anyone cares to do that.

Well, that all depends on who the thousand individuals are. If they're a group of people with different connections to various government agencies world wide as well as access to certain top secret information and various skills that would provide great use in destruction, then yes, they can do some damage.

If they're just regular, highly intelligent, people with no real first hand information or knowledge on how to destroy the world, then I don't think they could get much done.

On the contrary, I am quite sure 500 would not nearly be enough.

Well I guess how effectively you want the Earth destroyed. The heat wave from the hydrogen bomb is huge. Quite enough to kill lots amd lots of people. 500 would turn the world into a barren wasteland perhaps...

You'd need to make sure they were all detonated at exacly the same moment. Some of them could incinerate the rest of them before they have a chance to detonate.

Bilogical is the way to cause the most casualties I think. Subject a virus to radiation to encourage it to mutate then select the most virulent mutation and repeat the process. But then who will be left to appreachiate the destruction?

I have an idea, how about we all throw ice cubes at the sun to try to cool it down. with no sun, we have no plants, which means no food. the planet dies. damn ice cubes.

According to Wikipedia, the "energy release of the largest nuclear weapon ever tested" was 2.5 10^17 joules (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_%28energy%29) and the total energy of the Asian Tsunami waves was estimated at 2 10^16 joules (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Indian_Ocean_earthquake#Tsunami_characteristi cs). Of course, not all the energy released by a nuclear explosion would end up as wave energy, but it seems possible that even a single large submarine nuclear explosion could cause a tsunami.

It appears that reasearch into a 'tsunami bomb' was carried out in the 1940s under the name Project Seal (http://www.google.com/search?q=Project+Seal+%22tsunami%22+OR+%22tidal+wa ve%22). As they say, 'evil minds think alike'.

pfft, all of those are kind of noobish ways to destroy the world. after reading this (http://qntm.org/destroy) , I think the most possible idea is to aquire 14kg of antimatter, and stick it into the earth's core. also waiting for the earth to stop existing seems like a good bet.

The only problem with that idea is that no one can get to the Earth's core, but since the idea is so awesome, let's do some research!

alot of us have waay too much time... that's from a while back when somebody decided to write code to do that, and then a handful of the old-timers (myself included) decided to jump in with our own attempts...

My C++ code had thousands of colors, but the scaled back web-based version can be found here (http://www.johnshaoonline.com/misc/phpdocs/colors.php)
