My top question - Tactics to avoid getting harassed by corrupt police

My top answer - When I travel next, I want to reach the point on the earth that is exactly opposite my home, how can I discover where that is?

Welcome to the site. Asking subjective questions is frowned upon here - questions that include phrases like "is x better", or for opinions like "what should I do?", more suited to a forum. Please have a look at our help center on how to phrase a question for the site, and perhaps edit your question, lest it get closed.

@hippietrail not if the 90 day limit continues while he's out the country, which is what I believe he's asking - ie does it reset if he border hops.

Hi @anthony. I've edited your question to be less subjective - as per the help center. Hope it's still ok.
