It really does make me think though..what if bullying really does gain a level..if it still can..what can happen to the pacifist?

I never experienced bullying..and I'm a bit of a bully myself..well..the usual "voluntary" giving of food..but no extortion..

No worries, the pacifist only has to do a few delivery quests without combat to gain a level him/herself.

"Bullying" appears to be a grossly disproportionate term for this.

Tarkin was just bullying Alderaan a bit. :P

What I like is that the gas cloud is about 1000 lightyears wide. No escaping that sort of thing if it happens to our galaxy. Of course, we'd probably have about a billion years' notice, so meh.

Speaking as one protein-based contaminant to another, I assure you we wouldn't enjoy Earth being sterilized. :P

Drew: Does it really move that slowly? Every (exclusively non-scientific, admittedly) article I saw called it a jet of "radiation", which we literally wouldn't see until it hit us at the speed of light.

However, the shape of the jet (and that we see it at all) on the photo suggests rather that it contains actual matter that radiates in several directions. In that case, we'd see it long before it hits.

The question is still whether the jet's "advance guard" of super-hard cosmic radiation wouldn't be enough to at least ruin our day, if not free up space for a galactic bypass.

It wouldn't take a death star. An ultrarelativistic rock from space could blow the Earth to smithereens at any second.

We're constantly at risk of unexpected death from space. We'll live with it. We've been doing it for the last 65 million odd years.

—Alorael, who of course has no need to point out that around 65 million years ago life on Earth died with it in significant numbers. Don't worry, though. Not a single one of your ancestors was affected!

My money's on self-elimination, personally. I mean, we've already developed the nuclear warhead. It won't be long (relatively speaking) before we develop something powerful enough to blow each and every one of us off the face of the planet. And best yet, no aliens would be affected!

Unless, of course, the weapon we developed was a solarbonite bomb, at which case we can expect the aliens to harass Ephesos to prevent the untimely destruction of the universe. :P

By the time we can destroy an entire planet, a decent portion of us will be off the planet...

I don't mean actually blowing up the planet. I mean wiping all life from the face of the earth, which is already technically feasible with nuclear warheads.

...whoah. I guess we can scratch those galaxies off the SETI list.

Okay, I even looked this up. But it still just seems like you're being a tool arbitrarily.

I suppose another layer wouldn't hurt. Make sure to cover it all.

What happened to getting in a radiation suit and wrapping yourself up in several of those professional grade reflective fire blankets? :P

Hmm... Ornks, gazers and guacamole. What kind of food would you get?

How to Destroy the Earth

—Alorael, who notes that galactic bullying is unlikely to make the cut. Sterilizing is explicitly not sufficient.

I prefer these Scenarios. However, even with nuclear missles, it would be difficult to extinguish all life on earth. Or for that matter all humans, we're a resilient bunch, insane to the extreme, but resilient...

I don't know why, but reading this invoked numerous thoughts of EV Nova.

After destroying our world, we can swim in sounds of silence with hyperoids and wraiths...Yay!

It's not clear that galactic collisions are dangerous to humans at all. The distribution of stars over enormous scales may change, but they all remain many light years apart on average. So planetary civilizations really wouldn't care.
