Most dangerous thing in the world?

Antimatter is the most dangerous thing in the world. When one gram of antimatter collides with one gram of its matter, an explosion occurs, generating 4.184 x 1012 Joules. This represents 40% of the energy released by the Hiroshima atomic bomb detonation. Imagine the destructive force of an antimatter weapon if a single gram possesses this capability.
