Because dd can copy entire partitions or disks (this is more due to Unix providing access to these devices than the functionality of dd per se), it is used in computer forensics when the contents of a partition need to be preserved in a byte-exact copy.
The command line syntax of dd is unlike that of any other Unix program, resulting in widespread fear and loathing; it is rumored to have been based on IBM's JCL, and though the syntax may have been a joke, there seems to have never been any effort to write a more Unix-like replacement.
The fear is due to the fact that dd is used for low-level operations on hard disks: one tiny mistake, and instead of restoring a boot sector one may have rendered an entire disk virtually unusable.
DD's sister is a heartless bitch and could not, even to her brother, apologize or swallow her pride long enough to announce to him that his niece was now expecting.
DD explained that he thought it was rude of her to call us at the last minute because she wanted to go watch Survivor at a bar.
DD was so affronted by this whole incident that he refused to attend Easter Mass even when I begged him that right now we need any and all help we can get to induce the embryo(s) to stick around, whether that help is spiritual or mystical as we’ve already used up our scientific card.
