If you wanted to do something really stupid, would it be possible to totally smack your computer up with a baseball bat?
It would seem more so after you calmed down later, i would think
It's not really a stupid idea either. It can be a fun/revealing way to test the flexibilities that are available, but often just aren't put to use. If a person dosen't muck/experiment around with facilities then all they can do really, is just missread the docs. Or be limited to the extent that the documentation explaination/description decides to go.
Changing the root mount can be fun too, in loader configs. As long as the appropriate module dir is copied over it usually can be done with out much notice. I usually have most of my kernel stuff builtin, except for common things like filesystems, so they tend to all get referenced by the module configs anyway.
Madness with purpose becomes not, so to speak
