karcherise - To clean a surface "by super-high-pressure sand-blasting or water-blasting that very violently peels away the outer skin of encrusted dirt … even at the risk of damaging what's underneath." Karcherize.

e.g.,

Why is France burning? But Sarkozy poured verbal kerosene on the flames, dismissing the ghetto youth in the most insulting and racist terms and calling for a policy of repression. "Sarko" made headlines with his declarations that he would "karcherise" the ghettos of "la racaille" -- words the U.S. press, with glaring inadequacy, has translated to mean "clean" the ghettos of "scum."

In fact these two words have an infinitely harsher and more insulting flavour in French. "Karcher" is the well-known brand name of a system of cleaning surfaces by super-high-pressure sand-blasting or water-blasting that very violently peels away the outer skin of encrusted dirt -– like pigeon-sh*t -– even at the risk of damaging what’s underneath. To apply this term to young human beings and proffer it as a strategy is a verbally fascist insult and, as a policy proposed by an interior minister, is about as close as one can get to hollering "ethnic cleansing" without actually saying so. It implies raw police power and force used very aggressively, with little regard for human rights. I wonder how many Anglo-American correspondents get the inflammatory, terribly vicious flavour of the word in French? The translation of "karcherise" by "clean" just misses completely the inflammatory violence of what Sarko was really saying. And "racaille" is infinitely more pejorative than "scum" to French-speakers -- it has the flavour of characterising an entire group of people as sub-human, inherently evil, criminal and worthless, and is, in other words, one of the most serious insults one could launch at the rebellious ghetto youth.

kesseling - (n.) the heavy-handed insertion into a story (usually fan-fiction aka pastiches) of one's own interpretation or explanation of some error, inconsistency, or point of contention in the canon whence the new story is drawn. (from a Star Wars novel which bends over backwards to create a plausible explanation for "the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" [a parsec being, not a measure of time, but an astronomical unit arising from trigonometry, based upon observed stellar declination and the Earth's distance from the Sun. Twelve parsecs equal a distance of nearly 40 light years].)

e.g., In some Sherlock Holmes pastiches, plot gets suspended while the author airs his personal interpretation of the discrepancy between Watson's Afghanistan wound (shoulder or thigh?), his given name (John or James?), and his marital status (single?, widower?, remarried?). This tends to bore the reader, who is generally interested in a good story, not a canonical debate.

kinetihectic - Descriptive of one of those bad days, weeks, months, years or lifetimes when after several unfortunate occurrences have bludgeoned you repeatedly and you think relief must soon be on the way, you're clobbered again, and again, and again . . . so much so that bad news gains enough momentum you can no longer stop it.

Of course the van broke down again needing a new engine block, and we had to keep the truck to work out of while the van rusts on the street, and we now have to make a note on the new vehicle we were gonna pay off with the money from selling the truck, and there's not enough room to work out of it, and my wife got sick, and now I'm sick and we can't pay our bill . . . it's been kinetihectic.
