Hot also often means attractive or sexy. However, I've always felt that when a girl has true beauty, the word "hot" is not worthy of her.

In jazz music, "hot" means fast and energetic, full of radical improvisation and heavily syncopated. The opposite of "sweet".

1996 release by the Squirrel Nut Zippers. This was their big vault into fame and fortune. Hot is very polished, and very obviously marketed for commercial appeal.

That bothers some people. If you're one of them, I'm sure you'll be chafed.

The scrum in Winchester College football. Refers both to the players, and the thing that is done by them. Also a verb, to hot, which means to take part in a hot.

When the game is six a side there are three players in the hot, one row of three. When the game is nine a side there is a second row of two men. If the game includes ten people per side then there is one man in the third row. At fifteen a side there are two hangers on in the second row. The player in the middle of the front row is called the OP. The apart from this the positions are described using rugby terminology.

During the act of a hot the two hots form up as in rugby. The ball is put in by the hotwatch of the side that has been awarded the hot. The OP cannot hook the ball as the hooker in rugby can, but once his team have pushed sufficently far that his centre of mass is over the ball then he may heel it back.

In criminal/law enforcement parlance, "hot" can have one of three meanings:

A block, street, or district is considered "hot" if there is an above average level of serious criminality, especially if it is gang related. This can be reported as such as a badge of pride by criminal or criminally sympathetic (e.g. "rap") elements.

An item is considered to be "hot" if it is stolen.

A case or investigation is considered to be "hot" if it is under active consideration, there is rapid progress in the case, and/or it is being pursued vigorously by police. Compared with a cold case which means a case is considered unsolved, but unsolvable - either because too much time has passed or because there's too little available evidence. It's on file, but unless someone comes forward with new evidence it's not being investigated.
