brazen
      adj 1: unrestrained by convention or propriety; "an audacious trick
             to pull"; "a barefaced hypocrite"; "the most bodacious
             display of tourism this side of Anaheim"- Los Angeles

             modern world with its quick material successes and
             insolent belief in the boundless possibilities of
             progress"- Bertrand Russell [syn: {audacious},
             {barefaced}, {bodacious}, {bold-faced}, {brassy},
             {brazen-faced}, {insolent}]
      2: made of or resembling brass (as in color or hardness)
      v : face with defiance or impudence; "brazen it out"
