I totally match definitions 4 and 5. I am a mechanical and apathetic automaton and I do so enjoy a rum drink with fruit juice and apricot liqueur, preferably with a little umbrella and lit on fire. I'm also a process that has died but not yet relinquished its process table slot. Oh, definition 3! Snake god! Wanna see my snake? Bend over!!
