8.
Also spelled "Archy".

In the early part of the First World War, RFC pilots nicknamed the German AAA "Archie", after a pilot or observer (whose name is unknown). To show his contempt for the AAA, he would lean back, put his feet up on the edge of the cockpit, and sing "Archibald, Certainly Not!", a popular music hall song in which a woman staves off an overzealous sailor who wishes to consort with her.

(The example is kind of long, sorry)
"I had hardly got control of myself when I was horribly startled by an explosion which seemed only a few feet in my rear. I didn't even have time to look around, for at the same instant the concussion caught my plane and I began to roll and toss much worse than I had ever realized was possible. The very terror of my situation drove away all thoughts of sickness. In the midst of it several more shocks tipped my machine and repeated sounds of nearby explosions smote my ears. No matter what happened, I must look around to see what awful fate was overtaking me.

"All that I could see were four or five black puffs of smoke some distance behind and below my tail.

"I knew what they were right enough. They were " Archie "! They were eighteen- pound shells of shrapnel which were being fired at me by the Germans. And the battery which was firing them was only too well known to me. We had all been told about the most accurate battery that allied aviators had met in this sector...And probably they had quite a few more of those shells on hand which they were contemplating popping up at me...

"...Little by little my alarm passed away. I began to watch the course of the black puffs behind me. I grew accustomed to the momentary disturbance of the se: after each explosion and almost mechanically I met the lift of the machine with the gentle pressure of my joystick, which righted my Nieuport and smoothed it; course. And a rush of happiness came over me with the assurance that I was neither going to be sick nor was I any longer in any terror of the bursting shells. By Jove, I had passed through the ordeal! A feeling of elation possessed me as I realized that my long dreamed and long dreaded noviciate was over.. "

A person studying architecture. Easily identifiable by a slightly zombie-like demeanor, i.e. stumbling about in a half-lucid daze. They can be found in studio spaces, desperately clutching pencils, pieces of wood, and caffinated drinks.

A wonderful, intelligent, sweet guy who's very secretive when you first meet him, but is a great friend once he opens up. He makes the grades, is athletic, and loves video games. He's one of the sweetest most caring guys you will ever meet in your entire life. A pervert at times, but you get used to it after a while. Don't let his simplistic look fool you! He's a very open minded person.
Person 1: Hey, have you seen Archie anywhere?

Person 1: Well, that's Archie for you.

Tall,blonde,cute,crazy at parties, fun to hang with. If your a real judgmental person you would not like Archie at first. because Archie is a little bit fluffy but don't judge him for that. once you get to know him hes funny cute and kinky. Archie will go for women that are tall and brown or blonde hair. if you see Archie at a party be careful hes a party animal. Archie favorite sports are ether football or wrestling. you don't want to mess with Archie hes strong and fast. A Archer would ether be A country boy/cowboy. Archie is just as concerned about a girl friends needs as his own. Archie dose not take shit from people who call him fat he will manhandle you and hurt you badly. well if your looking for A Archie to date or hang with fallow those details.

Archie is probably one of the most cutest guys in the world. He has a lovely personality and is really out there and never shy! Before you miss your chance, talk to Archie. He is fab. His blonde curly hair is adorable and at times he's a quiet fella but other times he's outrageous. He's cute, funny, good looking and if you don't talk to him or get to know him, you're missing a chance of a lifetime. He goes for the girls with outrageous eyes, brown or blonde. He prefers brown girls with short hair and girls with long blonde hair.
Girl: Hey, omg have you seen that guy?
Friend: No, but I bet he's an Archie
