a magic combination of both would be the command:

sudo su -


make a shell "script" out of it:

sudo su -

call it "root", make it executable to everyone, put it in /usr/local/bin or
any other path in $PATH, add all users on your system to /etc/sudoers...

and just run your new "root" command and enjoy.. ok, of course you should
not do so!
by using "root" you can now have a root shell withouth having to type a
password every time :/
