Really? I keep hearing people say that we have enough nukes to blow up the Earth 100 times over.

To blow the surface up.


Isn't is possible that nuclear strikes along fault lines could start a chain reaction of earthquakes? It is theorized that a 12.0 could split the earch in half.

I thought 10.0 was the top of the scale?

This very topic even if in slightest jest prove why humans not capable of having *project V* or power for feature turned over in their control. They destroy themselves anyway just take longer.
