I've seen brickbat before but didn't know it's actually a piece of brick!
I've read brickbat before, too, and wasn't entirely sure of the meaning. Thanks!
I've come across brigand enough times in the last few years to actually learn it. I've seen brickbat used, but never really thought about the meaning. Abaddon is new for me too.
Perhaps the old days were a more violent time, but I see brigand often in old children's adventure stories. Thanks for sharing these.
