@barryallen1337 true, but in the .bashrc on Raspbian, not that many are there. Also editing the .bashrc is something you can do, but those changes might end-up throwing update problems that need to be merged. This is due to the changes made in the .bashrc file.
To have a smooth ride during updating the Raspbian OS, it better to use the .bash_aliases file. This file, if it exists, is read by the .bashrc and your aliases are activated. The .bash_aliases is read at the end of the .bashrc file, so your aliases are always created last what means the aliases work the way you set them up.
