I've got some pretty talented sciblings. Sure, they're all talented scientists or writers, or both. But, did you know there are some additional talents around here?
One of my lovely sciblings used to be a circus performer. In a traveling circus. He or she can juggle - but not just balls - try knives or flaming torches. And not just while feet are planted firmly on the ground - try while riding a unicycle. This individual also holds several world records for JOGGLING - juggling while running.
