Here's a fun quiz:

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.

What obsolete skill are you?

I'm personally dying to hear about the secreats what bankers dont want me to know. Not to mention the secreats of insurance and which one works best for me. Maybe this intrepid group of licensed experienced professionals crusading for Middle America will even discuss what a secreat is.

I think it's a disgrace that kids don't come out of school understanding more about personal finance, this nation's financial institutions and how simple things such as savings accounts, retirement accounts, investments, mortgages and revolving credit work. (Of course, then it would be much more difficult to demonize them.) It's even more disgraceful that the majority of people who see this in their email today won't even know what the errors in this were.
