The first one could be Imoh (IMOH - in my humble opinion), as it has 'ohm', unit of resistance+i/one.

Sorry about the typo, I meant IMHO!
I couldn't see any definition in the Macho one, I just put two bits together.

Chambers gives one defintion of 'jock' as 'macho young man'. 'Mac' is the 'son' - ie MacDonald and 'ho' is the prostitute.

Thanks again malone.

22d does seem to be missing a definition.

I was equally puzzled with the seeming lack of a definition - so I checked out 'macho'. I like to have things/clues settled!
