Default "Bombing"?

I know that it's not a technical term, but I'm just bored at work and curious...

What do you all consider "bombing"? Is it getting down a run without turning at all? Getting down using only huge, high-speed carves? Just generally going pretty fast?

In general, just going pretty fast is what I would say it is. But my friends and I always use it very specifically to describe not turning at all going down this one double black where we go boarding. All those definitions are good, and they're pretty much all just a different way of going really fast.

Bombing (bŏm-ing) v:
1. While snowboarding, if said "bomber" were to fall, serious injuries to self or others in near proximity would be certain.
2. The best way to ride.

Fast enough to do bodily harm. Very minimal speed checking.
