Android is a smartphone operating system developed by Google using a Linux kernel. The end result is a powerful smartphone that can best the iPhone. It is open source, so the apps are free, and you have personal liberty to customize your phone any way you want. Tech geeks are known to "root" their phone, which is a process that makes you the admin of the operating system, similar to Windows' Administrator account that has been in use since XP in personal computers. The only difference is that you do not get the annoying pop up on an Android phone as you do with the windows pc counterpart.

Android is available on all major networks, and some people have managed to flash their CDMA droids onto smaller PCS networks such as Cricket and Metro PCS.
Android is the Anti iPhone. For every iPhone 4 there is a HTC Evo, G2, Galaxy S, among others. Android is less show more features, unlike the iPhone which many people have bought for show. Android started out on T-Mobile with the G1 (HTC Dream), then went to Verizon with the Motorola Droid (Milestone in GSM markets). Sprint got into the action with an HTC phone, and AT&T was the last to get with Android with the Galaxy S. To date, AT&T limits its android phones to turn sales to the iPhone, and the other 3 major cell phone carriers emphasize their innovative phone features with their Android devices.

Mexicaca is a derogatory term that is used when someone talks about a Mexican. It is usually used by a non Mexican Latino but other races have been known to use the term as well. The literal translation of Mexicaca is Mexi-Shit as caca means shit in Spanish.

The reason a Latino would normally use the word is because of US culture grouping every Latino as a Mexican. Thus hate grew towards the Mexican because they feel Mexico represents nothing of them and their home country. Others feel when they are called "Mexican" they are seen with the usual stereotypes of a Mexican.
John: "Hey Juan, where are you from?"
Juan: "Panama"
John: "What part of Mexico is that?"
Juan: "Shut your racist shit up! I'm not a Mexicaca!"

Pedro: "Mira ese Mexicaca." "El piensa que es la gran mierda!"
translation: Look at that Mexicaca. He thinks he's the shit!

Pablo: "Simon!" "Sucio culero." "Por eso odio esos Mexicacas!"
translation: Yeah man! Dirty faggot. That's why I hate those Mexicacas!

To most of us, Appliance means a large electronic device used in the home. Appliances include refrigerators, washers, driers, ranges, ovens, and any other product designed to make life easier.

In the Dental world, an appliance is a device placed in a patient's mouth designed to correct the oral area. There are hundreds of dental appliances designed to do many things to the size of the mouth and the way it aligns with the upper and lower jaw.
1. I went to Best Buy to buy a GE washer. I also got the GE drier since it was on special. I am very satisfied with the efficiency of my new appliances.

2. Samantha went to the orthodontist today and was told the bad news that she would wear an appliance for 2 1/2 years. The appliance was to align her lower jaw with her upper jaw and create the perfect bite. Samantha was very traumatized from the social stigma received from the appliance as it caused her to lisp. She also had to deal with the pain of the appliance. It was not a fun experience for Samantha.

Contrary to a post here, Aldi is a grocery store based in Germany with stores all over Europe and growing in America. The store is to the likes of Trader Joes where everything is cheap and generic brand. The food is good, just like the food you expect to get at the big boys like Safeway or Giant but made by a unknown brand with the same ingredients as the "name" brand.

Aldi has their stores around the same size as a Trader Joes and usually has around 6 to 8 aisles. In those aisles you find the food that you want, usually stacked up in boxes, not shelves to save money. Once the boxes are freed up they set them aside for those that don't want to pay for the reusable bags they have. Aldi is also known to have small gadgets and electronics for the home.

A typical Aldi trip consists of going to the store, getting a quarter out of your pocket and inserting it in the cart (you get the quarter back later. They do this so you won't leave the cart in the parking lot. Very efficient way of avoiding cart dings on your car), going inside the store, grabbing your generic groceries at a much decent price than the overpriced name brands at the "Supermarket", going home with some extra money in your pocket. Maybe making a trip to the other supermarket since Aldi doesn't stock up on certain things the supermarket does like junk food.
I went to Aldi today. Yes I did have to loan a quarter to the store to use their carts, but at least I don't worry about the car getting beat up by the carts. The food was very cheap and even though it's not a name brand tastes the same way as the name brand. I also got this new laptop that they randomly had there. I thought it was a good deal so I said why not? Next week I'll go back to buy food and see what other gizmo they have. I'm still enjoying the blender I got there last month.

1. Prefix to denote "correction of".

2. Shortening or slang for Orthodontist.
1. Paul had to get orthopedic shoes due to his troublesome toes.

2. Samantha went to the Ortho today. Things were the same old for her. Check up her braces, tighten them, inflict pain.

Orthodontics is the practice of straightening teeth. It is practiced by specialists called "Orthodontists". Their job is to fit you with the infamous braces as well as any appliance that you may need.
Jazmine: "Have you seen Samantha today?" "She's now a victim of Orthodontics."

Keisha: "Yes, I've seen her mouth." "Such a shame, she was a beautiful person." "Now she will lose everything socially related."

703 is an area code that covers the Northern Virginian areas of Arlington, Alexandria City, Fairfax County, Prince William County, Manassas City, parts of Loudoun, Stafford, and Faquier. It was the original area code for the whole state of Virginia, but it was then split from the southern area of the state in 1973 to create area code 804. Area code 703 was split again in 1995 to create 540, and it's current footprint in Northern Virginia. Due to the increase of residents in the Northern Virginia area, it had to be overlaid in 2000 to prevent further splitting of the area code to just the cities of Arlington and Alexandria. It is preferred to have a 703 number than a 571 number for people in Northern Virginia, and some people go great lengths to avoid the 571 stigma as many people see it as a cell phone area code, or as an outcast area code.

Many people show their pride for the Northern Virginia area by getting custom merchandise with the 703 area code such as hats, shirts, and other accessories.
Whenever I go to Northern Virginia, I use my 703 numbered phone to contact my friends in Arlington and Alexandria. It is a very popular area code and isn't known to have numbers readily available. Usually phone companies give a 703 number the exact 60 days after someone deactivates their 703 line before putting into circulation again. That is only true thanks to demand.
