      the worthless word for the day is: hydroptic

      [fr. L. hydrōpicus] (cf. hydropic)
      archaic : having an insatiable thirst (like a dropsical person)
      hence fig.

      "The ponderous counterspectacle of things ceasing to be.
      The sweeping waste, hydroptic and coldly secular.
      The silence."
      - Cormac McCarthy, The Road (2006)
