Everybody gangsta until GRUB gets overwritten.

@oedmarap well grub can be reinstalled without any problems. But if you broke your root partition you're fucked. You'll probably have to reinstall.

@werwolf Definitely, it's not a major problem per se just a massive brick wall of a hassle when people run into it (mostly the dual-boot folks who for some reason are on MBR and not GPT).

@oedmarap this was an emotional rollercoaster to read because I experienced the hilarity of the post, the urge to share it, and the sad realization that none of my people would get it-- all at mach 3

@turtle21 I actually posted it on Twitter expecting nothing, but then a friend of mine replied laughing saying that he went through a "vanishing GRUB" moment a few weeks ago and could relate.

That was one in a million, but definitely worth sharing. 👍
