  • No caso dos carros batendo nos outros propositalmente, com o intento de jogá-los pra fora da estrada, do percurso, trajetória etc., eu diria que takedown rescinde a "neutralização", do verbo take down.

    Com tantos sentidos, burnout parece-me mais difícil de definir. No meu achismo, eu diria que burnout equiparar-se-ia à sensação de "esgotamento". (Esgotamento nervoso, esgotamento físico-mental ou só físico ou só mental, sensação de pilha gasta ou bateria descarregada).
