Yeah.  I used to play a trick on the trainee dbas at my previous job.
Ask them to get rid of "those old database files there", then sit
next to them and watch the proceedings.  One second after they hit
the return key on the "rm", I'd shout in with "Oh shewt!".

Guaranteed I'd be peeling them off the ceiling...
