unsafe give the impression that your code is somehow "bad" or "dangerous",
you're a programmer goddammit, and you know what you're doing!
Do you want to do something that the haters would probably say is "foolish" or "reckless"? Just tell the compiler to hold your beer for you as you prove the haters wrong!
Rustc doesn't like your code? Sometimes friends disagree, and that's ok. The important thing is that you absolutely know this code will work, you just need to convince rustc to try it out! Nothing bad could happen!
