This night I had a dream I typed

rm -rf /tmp /

as root. I get so nervous I struggled to find Ctrl-C and kept mistyping, then tried the power button but you have to hold it for two seconds, then thought of pulling the cord but the laptop had a battery charge. Then I woke up.

@hisham_hm I believe you'd have to also have typed --no-preserve-root for it to truly be a disaster

@Gargron My dream laptop was probably running an outdated version of coreutils!
