Actually Existing Socialism, a term coined during the Brezhnev era in the USSR (and used sarcastically nowadays to mock leftists and, more specifically, tankies) to refer to the 'real socialism' achieved by the Eastern Bloc countries (or whatever country in specific they like the most) in contrast to their various opponents in the left, regardless of whether or not their economy matched socialist theory.

AES is short for Advanced Encryption Standard. It has two definitions:

1) The process in which the U.S. government (NIST) approves a cryptographic standard.

2) The winner of the latest U.S. government cryptographic testing. In this case, Rijndael won. It's a block cipher with a 128-bit block size. It uses a 128-bit, 192-bit or 256-bit key size and is considered to be extremely secure.
The Serpent cipher came a close second to Rijndael in the AES competition.

It's encrypted with 256-bit AES, there's no way you can crack it!

n. Awkward Ending Syndrome
When you say good-bye to someone and then realize you're walking in the same direction so you start walking very slowly and hope they walk faster. That's an instance of obvious AES (awkward ending syndrome).

There are countless others.

AE is the shortened name of American Eagle. AE is widely popular with teenagers and you can find the usual staples such as faded jeans and vintage tees. American Eagle is often compared to Abercrombie due to their similar products, although AE is less expensive and more conservative.
Becka: Look at these cute jeans I got at AE!
Ashley: OMG! So cute and I bet they were cheaper than Abercrombie
Becka: U know it!
