For everyone who believes that the solar system has one too many planets circling around, Sam Hughes has the how-to guide for you: How to destroy the Earth. From the introduction:

This is not a guide for wusses whose aim is merely to wipe out humanity. I (Sam Hughes) can in no way guarantee the complete extinction of the human race via any of these methods, real or imaginary. Humanity is wily and resourceful, and many of the methods outlined below will take many years to even become available, let alone implement, by which time mankind may well have spread to other planets; indeed, other star systems. If total human genocide is your ultimate goal, you are reading the wrong document. There are far more efficient ways of doing this, many which are available and feasible RIGHT NOW. Nor is this a guide for those wanting to annihilate everything from single-celled life upwards, render Earth uninhabitable or simply conquer it. These are trivial goals in comparison.

This is a guide for those who do not want the Earth to be there anymore.

Just about every approach you could want is documented there, from shooting chunks of the planet out into space one at a time, to ripping it apart by tidal forces, to waiting for every particle of matter to decay. If you’ve ever wanted to know how to destroy the planet with the energy contained in a single light bulb, this is the guide for you.
