In his October 2000 column, the Perfect Master addressed the inquiry, “I plan to destroy the moon. What effect would this have on the earth?”.
Later that month, a poster wondered how that task might be accomplished.
Given this list, destroying the moon should be child’s play: as the Bad Astronomer noted the Earth, “has 81 times the mass of the Moon, so it takes 81*81 = 6500 times the energy to blow up the Earth.”
The remainder I will leave as an exercise for the reader.
