comment What is the best translation for “Slice” as in “I ate two slices of cake.”
No olvidemos "cachos", burdo y poco elegante, pero muy utilizado.

comment “Bad” words in good phrases - how socially acceptable are they
Just to add to the good answer: "Mucha mierda" comes from ancient times where a shitload in front of the theatre would mean that a lot of carriages has stopped by the theatre and left their passengers, so in that times "Mucha mierda" implied a big attendance to your spectacle, this is why theatre people used it to avoid "Good luck"

comment De donde se origina la expresion “echar aguas”?
Nunca he oído la expresión en España. Lo único parecido que he oído es el uso de ¡Agua!¡Agua! en contextos criminales para advertir de la llegada de la policía.

comment How to translate “background” into Spanish?
@pHonta "transfondo" is not correct, according to RAE lema.rae.es/drae/?val=transfondo the correct acception is "trasfondo".

comment Correct usage : Papas versus Patatas
Sorry, I thought the aceptions on the links were self-explanatory. Both words are valid, just "patatas" is the mainly word used in Spain (except in Canary islands and parts of Andalucia) while many other countries use "papas"
