Since LL swiped a couple of quizzes from me, I'm returning the favor...







What obsolete skill are you?




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.

I, for one, didn't think there was anything untrue in this article, but apparently it put some women's undies in a bunch. Pfooey on them! I've run across all 10 of those type of women in my time, and don't think any one of them represents my gender -- or ME in particular -- as a rule. In fact, the article made me laugh.

I'll make you a little prediction here -- when guys read this article, they'll probably be nodding their heads and thinking, "Yeah, I've met that guy. What a doofus," and not get all PMS-mental about a little truth-telling.

Ladies, lighten up. Seriously.

I thought it was funny, although a little freaky that there are people out there who are that... off.

Honey, you see them all, both women and men, at any given happy hour on a Friday afternoon!

I thought it was hysterical! I think I've known most of those women and dating most of those men!

I got this:
You are 'juggling'. Jugglers, tumblers, and other street performers were a very popular sort of entertainment once, before movies and talkies and online quizzes supplanted them.

You like to put on a show for people, and they like to watch. You are friendly and well-liked, particularly for your sense of humor, although you sometimes play with people's heads. You are frequently the center of attention, and you like it that way. However, you have to realize that the world does not revolve around you. Furthermore, you have to learn that your light-hearted antics are not appropriate to all situations. Your problem is that juggling has been obsolete for a long time.

I got the same thing, Lisa. :-)

As for the article? Spot on. Folks just need to learn to admit, we ain't perfect. Learn it and then do what ya gotta do to be better. Not all that hard.

Apparently, I grow my own food.

And the article about dolls was absolutely hilarious. Thanks for sharing that.
