find / -exec man {} \; 

Then start building things and breaking them.

There is nothing like trying to find the backup superblock with only sh, 
fsck, and a few other friends. It may take several hours to enumerate 
sector by sector through the disk, but eventually the logs will tell you 
where the filesystem used to live, so you can recreate the disklabel, 
fdisk entries, and pull the data off the slice.

But remember, with no superpowers comes no responsibility.
