Featured website: Urban Dictionary

Posted: May 4, 2011 in Features

If you haven’t seen it or used it, Urban Dictionary is an entertaining site giving life to “street” language.  Everyday definitions with an urban tilt on common slang that you will not find in Merriam Webster’s Dictionary.  It also has some other cool features worth checking out like word of the day, define your friends, and my city.

This is what came up when I clicked on my city, Santa Barbara, CA:

Santa Barbara
A jewel on the Californian coast, truly like no other. The weather is beautiful 24/7/360, the people are decent, the ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains surrounding it are beyond words.
Come see it before its too late, though. Its being invaded by developers, and the average house price is near a million dollars. Affordable housing is used as an excuse to put in large ugly apartment buildings. While SB still has the “Small Town” feel, its not going to be there for long.

Oh yeah, the mission. If you only see one mission in your life, see the Santa Barbara mission. Its incredible.

Santa Barbara. Its the last beautiful city in California.
california
1. State the produces more food than anywhere else, has crazy night life, large schools, hot women, a load of stuff to do, and the longest beach anybody has ever seen.
2. A place you’ll want to stay in once you visit get there.
3. Extremely diverse.
3. Much more entertaining than Texas.
California.
805
A telephone area code. It borders area codes 661, 818, 559 and 831. 805 is basically Ventura County and Santa Barbara.

The local phone carriers in 805 are:
SBC Pacific Bell, Verizon (used to be GTE)

It’s not a status symbol. It’s an area code.

If you don’t like it, go live in Canada mother fuckers.
hmmmm… what do you put in these things??
UCSB
1. University of California – Santa Barbara

2. University of Casual Sex and Beer

3. An almost too-good-to-be-true place that combines excellent academics with a vibrant social atmosphere and perfect weather. It is also the only university in the United States that owns its own beach.

Omigod you go to UCSB? Can I be your friend?
party
Something I never get invited to.
There was a party last night, but I wasn’t invited.
goleta
A bedroom community adjacent to Santa Barbara, and surrounding UCSB and Isla Vista.
UCSB Student A: “Man, I got arrested last night”
UCSB Student B: “that’s cuz GOLETA MAKES THE RULEZ”
Cali
1) One of the most important cities of Colombia, AKA The capital of Salsa. Unfortunately one of the most violent cities in the country.

2) An annoying name for California.

1) -I’m travelling to Cali this weekend.
-Great, I heard they make the delicious pandebono there.

2) -I’m travelling to Cali this weekend.
-Isn’t that too far?
-It’s our neighbor state, you idiot!

Los Angeles
A massive tangle of highways and roads, also rumoured to contain people and houses.
I spent all weekend in a traffic jam in Los Angeles.
Bay Area
Most commonly refers to the area around the bay located in the northern region of California. The peninsula part is based around San Francisco. The other major areas include Oakland in the east bay, and San Jose in the south bay. The Bay Area constitutes of all those regions and suburbs of those cities near the bay. There are, however, common misconceptions of the bay area, such as the Bay Area of Memphis, Tennessee, as well as a few others. THE BAY AREA MOST COMMONLY REFERS TO THE REGION IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, YOU CAN NOT DENY THAT.
The rapper Lil’ Wyte states that he is from the Bay Area. He is not from the Bay Area in Northern California, so he is in fact a pussy bitch. E-40 and Too Short are from the Bay Area; Vallejo and Oakland, respectively. Dont hate on the Cali Bay Area just cause your state’s Bay Area isnt as well known.

Here’s an analogy…When people say Portland (there are 14 Portlands in the U.S.), they’re most likely talkin about the one in Oregon.

(my bad if i didnt name your city in the definition of the bay area…i got love for the whole bay…vallejo, concord, richmond, pittsburg, sunnyvale, palo alto (EPA), fremont, mateo, marin, berkeley, and every lil town i forgot from gilroy to sactown to santa rosa and back down)
