What happens if I use Command-R and use the Recovery HD to log into the machine and erase (format) everything? Can this scenario actually happen? I mean, the Recovery HD won't ask for a password, so it would be pretty simple to lose everything or am I missing something here?

MacBook Pro (17-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
