DESTROY THE EARTH .
I like number three, smashed by a blunt object possibly mars
Yes, that one and the one on the earth being hurled into the sun. Stock up on sun tan lotion boys and girls
Good find Stubeef. Some of those were mind boggleling to say the least...
That is really interesting on what could happen. I thought the mini black hole was the weirdest way to destroy earth. But my favorite line of that whole thing would have to be:
i bumped into that last week and spent a good half hour laughing my butt off.
I loved #10.
Any moment now...
Could research and design a real Death Star. Blow it to bits in no time.
The von Neumann machines caught my eye...
A von Neumann machine is any device that is capable of creating an exact copy of itself given nothing but the necessary raw materials.
...and reminded me of this thread...
I liked that line too- "Cue ball"
That one was inspired by Red Dwarf: Eternity Welcomes Careful Drivers. That was the term Lister used when he overrode Holly's commands. He said they would end up snookered with the cue ball behind the black hole.
That was my favourite line. Of course I have no idea what a Dyson sphere is.
Its a Sphere surrounding the sun at ~1 au. You live on the inside of it. You need all sorts of magic technology to build it and keep it from crashing into the sun etc.
Its like a Ringworld but more so
if i remember my star trek - TNG, a dyson sphere is basicly an outsise in artifical planet built arround a small sun. Kinda like the ring world halo, but a sphere.
darn it i should refresh more often, or stop reading multiple posts in tabs at any rate.
This one is better.
"Look mom, we're all airplanes!"
So a giant Halo surrounding the sun? (but a sphere not a ring)
So how could you use this to destroy the earth?
The idea is you tear apart the earth to build the thing.
The ancient chinese started it with the great wall of china. They gave up before they got it finished.
Thanks I get it now.
It's great when it takes forever for someone to explain a joke to you, and when you get it, you still actually think it's funny.
Elect Jeb Bush as the next President.
Who would name their kid Jeb anyway?
Its his initials. Birth Name John Ellis Bush.
As for being El Presidente I doubt he will be nominated. He has said before he isn't actively seeking the nomination.
Condi Rice perhaps. The usual suspects will probably also give it a shot.
Edwards and Hillary are going to duke it out for the Dems.
My favorite as well. Seems like those guys would have to be resourceful to mine all the raw materials....
I also liked the bit about including rocket propulsion in the design.
I was hoping for interactive graphical simulations of each scenario.
Ok, I know the site is called Live Science and I'm not a terrorist looking for ways to destroy the world... but don't you think they were a little too scientific. Jokingly ones like the sling Mars into Earth is light-hearted and funny, but some of the others... well.. perhaps you've got to be a scientist to find them funny...
