When you either can think of any more examples or the list is too long you say "etc." at the end of the sentence. Other wise meaning "so on and so forth..." It stands for 'Et Cetera'.
"The new car had power locks, power windows, heated seats, etc."

Everyone uses "etc" but some noobs do not know what it means.

Heres the meaning:
et cetera, a Latin expression meaning "and other things" or "and so on"
Matt: We will go to Anya's house, Bring some clothes.. You'know!
Scott: Are we going to swim too?
Matt: Yeah, Swimming, Playing some basketball, etc.

Etc is an abbreviation for Et Cetera, a Latin saying that means "and other things", but people commonly use it when they can't think of anything else to put on a list, but know they are other things that can go on that list. During the example I am stating, between these: *, an asterisk, means that he/she is thinking, not speaking.
"Today I ate cereal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a cup of yogurt, *I can't remember what else I ate, but I remember eating something else! I have an idea.* etc."

Without the *Thinking*, this is what he/she said:

"Today I ate cereal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a cup of yogurt, etc."
