    I think we’ve all been there.
    That’s what code reviews are for to save our ass.

    Don't wanna play the smartass here as I'm actually a person who ran "sudo rm -rf *" in his root directory once :-| but whenever you use --force on ANYTHING, read that fucking line three times. Think about what could be wrong, and check those things. Possibly even let a colleague look over it in some scenarios (would be overkill for a git push but there's no shame in letting someone check your dd command).

    Only after doing all of this, you're allowed to run that command. Follow this strategy and you'll be good in the future.
