Today's "Word of the Day" from Dictionary.com was torpid. What a
great word.

As dpa often says, but what does your robot do? you can answer
it's being torpid just now.

  torpid \TOR-pid\, adjective:

1. Having lost motion or the power of exertion and feeling;
numb; benumbed.
2. Dormant; hibernating or estivating.
3. Dull; sluggish; apathetic.

Yeah! If only I'd known. I should have entered the talent
contest. I have half a dozen robots that are excellent at being
torpid electronic bodies.
