Well it's been five minutes and hasn't loaded, or for that matter.  Guess I'll just put this here.

In the Users and Groups tool, there should be an option to mark the user
as an "Administrator," which would place them in the sudoers file.  The
first user should by default be an administrator; all other users should
not be unless set to be.

There should always be one administrator at least.  If less than one is
selected, the changes will not be applied.  If the user is determined,
he can visudo and do it himself.  GUI tools should guide you in the
right direction; if you want to castrate yourself, you gotta pick up the
knife with your bare hands.
