obsolescence

I DID take Latin in High School for 2 years. Of course all I remember is agricola, agricolae, agricolarum. That and making a replica of the roman forum out of sugar cubes! (Thanks to Omis whose obsolete skill is French. Ah ... the joys of pointless internet tests! A not quite obsolete skill ... yet).

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.


What obsolete skill are you?

It's better than French.

Tres tragique.
