Taking things to the absolute extreme in order to avoid a series of small escalations. This can be a way of winning a fight you might not otherwise win, but has the potential to destroy both people involved.

Examples:

A kid tells you your hat is ugly so you tell him Santa isn't real

Your friend makes a joke about the way you mispronounce things and embarrasses you in-front of others, so you tell her that her boyfriend is cheating on her.
There was nothing I could do. I had to go nuclear. Fuck the consequences.
