Or it could be the old "Scare your children into being good" parenting tactic, aka a tactic which has probably been used since we crawled out of the primordial ooze. Which works more: "Don't go in the water, because you might drown," or "Don't go in the water, because the black-haired squid-lady will eat your bones and use what is left to make her ink?"

Okay, I wanted to make a more meaningful contribution to this thread, but I blanked on my question for a bit. But I remember now, so here goes nothing: what kind of skills are needed to become a roustabout with a circus?
