That's a really good point actually, and more people should be made 
aware of pkill.

pkill -u username

will kill all processes owned by that user.

pkill -u username programname

will kill all proceesses called programname owned by that user.

So killing all of perry's bash processes is easy: pkill -u perry bash.

If you just typed 'killall bash' you'd be likely to kill your own bash 
process as well!
