People's Liberation Army

The name of the armed forces of the People's Republic of China.

The PLA is composed of three branches:

*PLA (People's Liberation Army)
The Army is the very basis of the military, composed of "grunts" trained to become infantry for usual land warfare. Like any other nation's military, it has artillery (like tanks and other armor), special forces, engineers, and basic infantry.

*PLAN (People's Liberation Army Navy)
The PLAN is like any other navy, since it has ship all kinds (like warships, carriers, and submarines). The PLAN also has a Marine Corps, although it's not as advanced, or powerful, as the USMC.

*PLAAF (People's Liberation Army Air Force)
The PLAAF is like any other nation's airforce in that it has aircraft of all kinds. China has been experimenting with UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

The PLA is owned by the PRCCMC (People's Republic of China Central Military Commission), which is run by a chairman, often a general.

The PLA also specializes in fields involving C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers & Intelligence), outer space and, of course, nuclear arsenal.

In China, people are required to join the military upon graduation from school. In otherwords, unlike other sources saying so, the setup is not a draft, but seemingly, conscription.
"The PLA is interesting in that their main assault rifles, the T95's, are chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO....that's the US & allied caliber for assault rifles....are we looking at an alliance with China one day?.....probably not. -_- such a shame. China, with its interesting culture and rich history....fascinated with world domination like eons ago....but what do I know; I'm an American. Being American is a good thing, but it has its downs too. -_- "

An acronym for "Parking Lot Action". Pronounced "play". It is the act of having sex in an establishment's parking lot. Getting your smash on in the parking lot. Gettin some play in the parking lot. Usually when heavily intoxicated, one will pick-up a stranger at a bar and have sex in the parking lot vs. having the other person find out where they live.

It can also be used as an adjective to describe a female who looks as if she has the potential to perform dastardly deeds in the parking lot.
I just got some PLA.

Polylactic acid. A new plastic (often made from corn) that is becoming commonly used in consumer products (such as plastic cups) because it is compostable. Due to its recent introduction, most people are unaware that chewing polylactic acid can cause a high.

The sound made when firing imaginary bullets from an imaginary gun during an imaginary drive-by shooting. Often when saying this the speaker will extend his thumb and index finger, tilt it towards his 'target' and simulate shooting at them.
"Drive-by! Drive-by! Pla! Pla! Pla, pla, pla, pla, PLA! Pla!"
