      the worthless word for the day is: tardigrade

      [fr. L. tardigradus, slow-moving] /TAR duh grade/
      slow-moving; sluggish

      "The steady wash of the rain, the tardigrade
      progress, the inexorable attrition."
      - T. C. Boyle, Water Music (1981)

      "Davis mentions.. two intimately connected char-
      acteristics of the Latin American Enlightenment,
      namely its tardigrade character and its political
      conservatism."
