L Sprague de Camp's "Judgement Day" (novelette, doomsday): A man's ultimate revenge against school bullies
A physicist bullied throughout his school years grows up convinced everyone is a bully, or will be given half a chance. Now he's got something to take his revenge on an unkind world, a discovery that allows nuclear destruction of iron - so easy end of the world since it's so abundant in earth's crust.
Should he publish his results, so some crank somewhere will execute his revenge?
