- Chiefly Austral., N.Z. bewildered, as by being lost in the bush
- Informal very tired; exhausted
Extremely tired; exhausted: “I once stayed awake seven years on end. Not even a nap. Boy, was I bushed” ( Martin Amis )
Origin of bushedPossibly from Australian slang lost in the bush
- This is done by mounting the working wire on a metal plate made of the same metal as the working wire itself; thus if the working wire is of platinoid it must be mounted on a platinoid bar, the supports which carry the ends of the working wire being insulated from this bar by being bushed with ivory or porcelain.
- It was of the same type as Mallet's engine, and was made by simply bushing one cylinder of an ordinary two-cylinder simple engine, the bushed cylinder being the high-pressure and the other cylinder the low-pressure cylinder.
