Commands not to be used on terminal as a root user

First one on list is the infamous 8 characters in that particular order

rm -rf /

Sometimes we just want to remove the current directory for which the command is rm -rf ./ but you keyboard skips the dot and you end up in a deadzone.

Second one would be:

ifdown eth0

wow!!, you just disconnected your server from internet.
