Which definition of stagnant do you think Jason Babin was referring to?
- (of a
body of water or the atmosphere of a confined space) Having no current
or flow and often having an unpleasant smell as a consequence.
- Showing no activity; dull and sluggish: "a stagnant economy".
Now, the first would imply they definitely stunk, which they do, but the second would help explain the secondary: dull and sluggish.
Sorry. That will be our last Jason Babin post.
