Is there any key sequence that can reliably quit vim without saving changes regardless of current mode?

s//<cr>:q!

(Not tested. Probably won't work with macro recording)

I've tried powering off and it does NOT work. When you go back into vim, you have to navigate a recovery dialog, quit vim again, and delete the recovery file 😂

@AceNovo I find powering off kills vim, but next time the computer boots straight into Zombie Vim, the editor for making walking skeleton apps you test in Headless Chrome

@andrewt
Vim, official text editor and supplier of WMD for the Skeleton War and the Zombie Apocalypse. We doesn't have wizards. We have necromancers

Also vim v. emacs is the reason that modern communism isn't hardass about religion anymore 😂
