Russian term or phrase: Очертя голову
Любопытства чистого ради: как выразить сей нехитрый образ на языке Шиллера и Гете?
Мои друзья утверждают, что в немецком языке, в силу присущей немцам основательности в любом деле, данная идиома просто невозможна. И сам я не уверен.
Просьба описательных переводов, вроде "blitzschnell" не предлагать:)
