comment The best pre-paid nano (iPhone 5) sim-only bundle for mobile Internet in the Netherlands
Welcome to the site. As per our help center, asking for suggestions or subjective questions like "the best" is off topic. I highly recommend editing and rephrasing to explain what that means to you. To some it'd be the cheapest, to others it'd be the fastest, to others it'd be the one that has the best reception, for example.

comment What u.s. car insurance is there for my British Land Rover with British plates?
Welcome to the site. Could you be more specific (have a look at our help center on how to form a question here) - what license are you on, what age (some companies don't let people under 25 rent), what states are you visiting, for example. Have you tried a search for it yourself - anything you've found? Generally asking for a giant list of answers isn't the way to go here, so I'm just trying to help - your question got flagged automatically for its length...
