The MBR Love Letter

First, this was Friday's XKCD comic:
And she put sweet nothings in all my .conf files.  It'll take me forever to get X working again.

Then today, I ran across someone who decided to actually pull it off, with a nifty how-to. Obviously, tweaking the MBR can render your system unbootable, so it's not recommended to do it unless you really know what you're doing, or if you're going to format and re-install anyways.

I laughed, which is always a good way to get an early start to the work week.
