Top ten ways to destroy Earth

Stumbled across an interesting site today: Top 10 Ways to Destroy Earth.

While I'm not mentioned by name, it seems they're at least familiar with my work. #3 and #1 are personal favorites of mine.

UPDATE: Commenter Ataraxaven below points out another very good article about planetary destruction, this time from a Star Trek angle.

Just for fun some time you could maybe get your hands on some "red matter" to mix things up a bit.

Not as up close and personal as blowing up maize, but could still be fun to watch (from a distance of course) :D

I prefer original article format found here: http://qntm.org/?destroy

Less clicks, less ads, much smoother reading.

@ Ataraxaven: Very cool, and insightful! This is exactly why I never use black holes myself.

@ Crash: To each their own...
