What Unix tool would like to use in real world? Like superpower :)

    Toss up between

    yes "leave me the fuck alone"
    ssh toddler 'sleep 1000' &
    chown runfrodorun new-BMW
    less bullshit
    Bash the-shit-out-of-jackasses-who-mix-tabs-and-spaces.sh
    tar czf apartment.tar.gz /*
    (For moving)
    Ln -s workplace bedroom
    Sudo apt-get install knowledge
    man 1 women
    Man 5 IRS
    Sudo apt-get purge $(dpkg -S /etc/init.d/stress-creatord) mono
    Ssh fridge 'la -l | grep beer'
    Mv dishes cabinets/
    Ssh customer 'shutdown -r now'

    That's all I can think of right now.
