What is the quickest way to destroy Obsidian?

A bit of backstory first. I've spend the last few months collecting resources, and then I built a one hundred block tall pretty much symmetrical pyramid out of Obsidian. I remember watching a video a while back where somebody did something similar, except with a different type of resource. His was hollow, so monsters spawned inside of it, which I didn't want to happen with mine, so I made it full instead of hollow. I didn't realise I shouldn't put rooms in until the last minute like I usually do, because it's not practical with Obsidian like it is with Cobblestone. It's a bit of a habit. Now I only have one room, which was dreadful to put in with how slow it was to dig out.

So is the only way to put in rooms to slowly mine out the inside? I really hope there's a better way.

TNT can break obsidian in some cases but it's not effective.

Hopefully you have a diamond pickaxe, that's the fast way.

Alright, thanks! I guess I'll make the other rooms a little bit per day.

Is there any way to prevent clouds from going through my room?

you'll have to collect obsidian slowly for making portals in the nether so you can get out, but to get inside you can easily mould it via soil/cobblestone and lava/water buckets.

That.. is an impressive pyramid.

If you don't mind modding, look for the Powerful Obsidian Tools mod, its obsidian pickaxe and obsidian povel can both break obsidian blocks near instantly.

Just make sure you destroy all the obsidian tools and obsidian ingots in your world if you want to uninstall it later. And backup your world first just in case.

Why would you want to destroy them? They make great games! I'm sorry you don't like them. New Vegas is awesome.
