Which Obsolete Skill Are You?

In knitting news, I found LaLa's first sock when I plugged in her nebulizer last night. It was on the floor between DH's side of the bed and his nightstand. La still seems thrilled by her socks.

DH's red scarf is knitting purgatory. It's not quite TV knitting, but not super complicated. I wish Cascade 220 were a thicker yarn. The size 7 needles are not showing me the progress that I'm hoping for. That's all I'm saying.

I did this quizilla quiz and was too stunned by the results not to post it:

QBASIC screenshot
You are 'programming in QBASIC'. This programming
language (of which the acronym stands for
'Quick Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic
Instruction Code'), which is so primitive that
it cannot easily be used for any purpose
involving the Internet nor even sound, was
current more than a decade ago.

You are independent, in a good way. When something
which you need cannot be found, you make it
yourself. In writing and in talking with
people, you value clarity and precision; your
friends may not realize how important that is.
When necessary, you are prepared to be a
mediator in conflicts between your friends.
You are very rational, and you think of things
in terms of logic and common sense.
Unfortunately, your emotionally unstable
friends may be put off by your devotion to
logic; they may even accuse you of pedantry and
insensitivity. Your problem is that
programming in QBASIC has been obsolete for a
long time.

My result was 'Grow your own food.'
I had my older kids take it and two came out as 'Gregg shorthand' and one was 'Juggling'!
