      the worthless word for the day is: makeweight

      [make + weight]
      1) something added on a scale to make a desired weight
      2) an unimportant person or thing thrown in to fill a gap
      3) a counterweight; a counterbalance

      "And right behind him was the guy Reacher thought of as
      the third man. Not the driver from the first night, and not
      the big guy with the small ears, but the makeweight from
      the second day."
      - Lee Child, Never Go Back (2013)
