    Hahah so true so true ... but all gods fall if their worshipers stop

    So ... there are ways. Root is only given this power because it is
    allowed that by the operating system kernel. It is always possible to
    shunt root out if the kernel chooses to do so. We can actually
    construct environments where security officers != system administrators.
