blast at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

O.E. bl?ist "puff of wind," from PIE *bhle-, var. of base *bhel- "to swell, blow up." Meaning "explosion" is from 1635; that of "noisy party, good time" is from 1953, Amer.Eng. slang. Sense of "strong current of air for iron-smelting" (1697) led to blast furnace and transf. sense in full blast "the extreme" (1839). Blast was the usual word for "a smoke of tobacco" c.1600. Blast off first recorded 1951. ///
