• The internet works based on a series of protocols.
• Protocols are rules that tell computers how to talk to one another.
• IP (Internet Protocol) addresses are how other machines on the internet find each other.

• You'll probably buy your house with a mortgage (which is basically just a housing loan).
• A general rule is that your house should cost 2.5 times your gross income.

• Caucuses are kinda like primaries, except they're big IRL meetings.
• The Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses happen before the primaries do, so they help us predict which candidates will win the nomination.
