Please don't do that - it may likely cause you to have other unrelated
problems later when you are your normal self again.

It is better to log in as your normal self and SU to root.

Otherwise, if you do log in as root and touch something to become root only
access whereas it would work as the other self, I feel you will likely need
to ask us a TON of root questions now...

This is WAY OT now...
