TankHughes commented on the word brisage
I got out of an adult charity spelling bee on this word. It angers me because I was close to the "lightning round" which was a novel format I feel like I could have pwned. The word is defined on this pyrotechnic site: http://www.faqs.org/docs/air/ttpyro.html, "An explosive can be characterized by the amount of energy it releases when detonated, as well as by its shearing and shock effect, or 'brisage'."
