Is it safe to sudo override 'permission denied'?
I keep getting permission denied. I feel like I can trust this, but I dont want to mess up my computer.
Could it be at all dangerous to install?

It shouldn't mess up your computer at all. In fact as I recall if you want to use sudo to install a ruby gem the console should ask you for your username and password! So in theory only you can install anything if you use sudo. :-)
