Oh yeah. Did something similar on my Powerbook back around Panther:

sudo rm -fr /bin

I heart my Macs (all of 'em), it was just a matter of copying back the 
bin directory or reinstalling over the existing files or grabbing the 
timemachine copy or somesuch... whatever it was, it was 20 minutes of 
frustration, then all good. Try that on linux... no, don't :), unless 
you're doing timeshift or something similar and just wanna have some fun.
