hachure a sculpture technique using a dremel tool to make tick-tack-toe-like markings in the material so that it can be chiseled away; usually in very hard materials, or materials likely to fracture at the point of the chisel attack without hachuring.

Did you remember to hachure before you ... oh, bummer, dude.

OK! Dinner at Joseph's Italian Restaurant tonight courtesy of my sister visiting from Atlanta. Chianti, bruschetta, antipasto, minestrone, Fettucini Alfredo with shrimp and sauteed mushrooms, spumoni. Boy howdy am I full!

First order of business, the actual definition:

hachure shading or lines showing a slope on a map

(I'm guessing something similar to Dinzdale poring over the slopes in a photograph of Pamela Anderson.)

Now, on to the fun part!

The Some Of My Best Friends Are Latvian Award goes to Jedi for:

hachure- a brand of cherry scent, that u put on the tip of a hatchet to give it a nice smell. It's the craze with all the latvian lumberjacks.

Good effort but you need to pick on soemone else for a while. Try the Macedonians, they're real twits.

********************

12" gets the Oh, No, Not You, Too! Award for assisting Jedi in his assault on the Latvians (Ptooi!) with:

hachure, n.

The new Pantera sports a hachure, a removable hatch that allows for the conversion of the car into a small pickup truck.

Illustration: [i]Pantera {with hachure}.[I/]


Last edited by 12"razormix : Today at 05:26 AM. Reason: edited to add: of course this model is only available in Latvia

***********************

xfox shows an unusual sense of martial style and wins the Brigadier General Hedda Hopper Award with:

hachure - n. outlandish headwear designed for fright.

The opposing army fled in terror created by the onslaught of soldiers wearing the most horrifying hachure and spanning the horizon around them.

***********************

Coffee gets the You Would Know, Wouldn't You? Award and best wishes not to encounter such a problem in the near future with:

hachure n (from hatch + urea)
The briny dusty composite residue that builds up in the tight spots around the edges and seams of seacraft hatches. Hachure can promote rotting of timbers of wooden vessels, as well as binding hatches and wicking in of water in all craft if not cleaned out regularly.

Damn yer eyes ye scurvy dogs if ye fergets to swab out the hachure agin it's thar plank ye'll be walkin...arrrr.

***********************

The You Make It Too Easy Award, encouragement to keep on trying, and kudos for a valiant effort go to Kaskeens for:

hachure-trying to complete something at the very last possible minute in the hopes that you will finally be victorious, such as finally winning a dictionary game.

***********************

The Gold Tissue Box Award goes to dd for:

hachure - a sneeze with a speech impediment. See also geshundyeit.

***********************

Rodin, himself, would be proud of your ingenuity, Marcus, you win the The Thinker Sculpted Out Of Cream Cheese Award for:

hachure a sculpture technique using a dremel tool to make tick-tack-toe-like markings in the material so that it can be chiseled away; usually in very hard materials, or materials likely to fracture at the point of the chisel attack without hachuring.

Did you remember to hachure before you ... oh, bummer, dude.

************************

Funky comes in next and wins the But Mo-om! Award with:

hachure: leavings in a nest (chipped egg shells, down, eye teeth) after the chicks have left.

Jim-Bob tried to pass the eggshells on the front path off as hachure from the unruly hens but his mom could tell they were from his sloppy attempt to take the garbage out; she punished him accordingly.

*************************

Velcro wins the Desperate Rookie Of The Day Award for:

hachure - of or relating to the love of Teri Hatcher (please forgive a first-timer)

(You're forgiven)

*************************

The For Only $1,000 Per Lesson You, Too, Can Be A Yoga Master Award goes to Leah who sends us into Samadhi with:

Hachure - Pronunciation (Ha-chew-ray)

A relatively unknown branch of yoga practiced by the elusive Hachurian monks who are rumoured to reside in a tiny principality called Hachu, high up in the Himalayas. Hachure is believed to bestow the practitioner with the magical ability to read minds, levitate and see through walls, although this is still unproven as an authentic Hachurian monk is yet to be captured alive for clinical trials.

*************************

Winner of the Overactive Imagination Award goes to Dinz who must have spent most of an afternoon at work creating:

hachure n.

A snorkel that fits over the nostrils only and is flat in profile, the twin tubes running behind the ears and exiting behind the head.
Originally developed during WWII by German minge scientists in preparation for the invasion of Southern England. Each stormtrooper was to be issued with one for the secret mission of enabling them to perform cunnilingus for unlimited periods, thus undermining the Allied forces efforts via the female population. German soldiers trained for hours in secret tongue bathing laboratories in the Ruhr valley near the town of Pistenflapz, and achieved extended box lunches that lasted a whole afternoon.
As fate would have it, the only hachures were issued to a crack team from the 5th Sturmbahnfuhrer Klitmunchen Y Brigade, and records show that they in fact went missing, only to be found after the war locked in Mrs Goebbels back bedroom.

************************

And winner of the You Bought That Piece Of Sh*t Software, Too, Did You? Award goes to Trish:

hachure: A trifold desktop publishing product of such disgraceful formatting that its creator disowns it.

(There's just something about her delivery that has a ring of truth to it...)

Have at it, Trish...

bombazine (n) An ornamental calico folding camp vase popular amongst the more well perfumed officers during the Boer War. For newly appointed officers it came to be regarded as quite the status symbol and would be proudly given centre place on the officer's travelling mantle. Eventually 'the bombazine' came to refer to anything that stood out from in terms of quality from its surroundings. A reflection of this usage can still be found in the modern phrase 'da bomb'.

bombazine -- Inflated language, usually from skiiers announcing their ski trips, often giving time and place and duration of stay, together with a list of famous people who frequent the resort, with a description of planned liquor consumption and sexual adventure.

Trisherina avoided the usual skier's bombazine with 'Warning: I am heading off skiing Sunday morning, so this round will run only to latish Saturday night MST.'

bombazine

bombazine-a type of antibacterial agent used to treat only the worst cases of infection, known primarily from its great tv ads featuring John Madden with his family sized tube of bombazine treating a quite extrordinary rash on his frontal lobe.

Bombazine n. (Classified, DOD file HS-48396z)

Top secret anti-terrorist drug in clinical trials at underground laboratories in the US heartland. Intended to be released in gaseous form over terrorist hot spots, deployment has been delayed by alarming side effects.
Test subjects transfered from Abu Ghraib have so far demonstrated succesfully that the compound can indeed reduce the impulse to terrorism, and initially encouragingly, they also lost belief in their muslim faith. However leaks in several test chamber incidents have caused several researchers also to display tendencies to develop skepticism about, or to lose their religious faith altogether. Some have even tried to quit the project, suddenly coming to believe that it is immoral, although they are held in isolation to prevent disclosure about the project. Interestingly all subjects afflicted by the gas are also showing signs of increased brain function, especially in the area of reasoning skills.
Administration scientists are desperately trying to save the project by eliminating these dangerous side effects, but so far they are finding that the link between religious and terrorist impulses are too closely linked to select for one or the other.
