<i>What Obsolete Skill Are You?</i>

I don’t usually do these silly quizzes but since I have an interest in obsolete skills I had to try this one:
What Obsolete Skill Are You?

Calliope, Muse of epic poetry

You are ‘Latin’. Even among obsolete skills, the tongue of the ancient Romans is a real anachronism. With its profusion of different cases and conjugations, Latin is more than a language; it is a whole different way of thinking about things.

You are very classy, meaning that you value the classics. You value old things, good things which have stood the test of time. You value things which have been proven worthy and valuable, even if no one else these days sees them that way. Your life is touched by a certain ‘pietas’, or piety; perhaps you are even a Stoic. Nonetheless, you have a certain fascination with the grotesque and the profane. Also, the modern world rejects you like a bad transplant. Your problem is that Latin has been obsolete for a long time.

How obsolete are you?

    Like you, I don't usually do quizzes, but I couldn't resist finding out which obsolete skill I am. I am Gregg shorthand. 35% of people had this result. Does this mean that I'm more obsolete than you? 😉

    Well, darn it, I guess we don't have everything in common. I'm Programming in QBasic. But I will always think of you as my blogodoppelgänger.
