Complete and utter disregard to logic or to rational thinking. The epitome of "tunnel vision". Rash and reckless.

A Japanese pilot trained in World War II to make a suicidal crash attack, especially upon a ship.
From October 25, 1944, to January 25, 1945, Kamikazes managed to sink two escort carriers and three destroyers. They also damaged 23 carriers, five battleships, nine cruisers, 23 destroyers and 27 other ships. American casualties amounted to 738 killed and another 1,300 wounded as the result of those attacks.
literally means "divine wind"
Japanese word "Divine wind".
In Japanese history, Japan had only a few crises to be invaded by foreign forces, twice by Mongolians and once by the USA.
When the Mongolian empire was at peak, Fubirai Kahn, a grandchild of Genghis Kahn, attempted to conquer Japan in 1274 and 1281 with massive forces. In both occasions, divine force, perhaps typhoon, destroyed Mongolian forces at sea. Since then, there was a belief that Japan was protected by divine force.
During the World War II, when Japan was loosing, Japanese air force adapted desparite suicidal attacks and named kamikaze after the divine wind.
Kamikaze was a crazy strategy.
At the time, Kamikaze was like guided missiles, and feared by American soldiers.

Etymology: Named after the Japanese suicide pilots of WWII.
I'm going to the 7-11 to get a kamikaze. Want to be my designated driver?

Brett: Must be from hooking up with that dude last night.
Brendon: Yeah... You wore me out. Kamikaze
The name of a tempest which wrecked a mongol fleet (led by a descendant of Genghis Khan
) that tried to invade Japan. The name lends itself to a sqaud of Japanese WWII pilots who had very little training, so were just told to load up with explosives and crash into vessels. Although a number of European warships were attacked by Kamikaze, the steel decks meant that the attacks were ineffective.
Self-sacrifice was a last ditch attempt to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
