comment Can I pass through the airport security with a de-activated Bazooka?
@User: you and I can. That doesn't mean people who have never held one can, as well.

@User: Yeah, you would kick open the bathroom door and scream "Kaboom suckers!" (or something more sensible). On a more serious note, a Bazooka is scary - if people are afraid of a small bullet, they sure are not going to take a portable rocket launcher lightly. Anecdotally, I've seen the face of some idiot officer who stood behind a bazooka when giving the command to fire; since then I know that it's scary on both sides.

comment can I add one more passenger in return flight of a round trip
@phoog: True; though sometimes you have to settle on getting some sweet revenge when that lady in the aisle seat absolutely refuses to swap her seat with the aisle seat one row behind her (which would have allowed me to sit next to my kids), and then she is super annoyed throughout the entire flight that my two kids are being kids and go "daddy, daddy, this" and "daddy, daddy, that".

Depending on the airline, you may be able to reserve adjoining seats.

comment Can I wear a bulletproof vest while traveling on British Airways from Heathrow?
@BobJarvis: A Kevlar balaclava will not really protect you from a bullet - even if you were to add ceramic plates to distribute the load and soak up some of the momentum, you will most likely suffer severe brain trauma from the force of the impact.

If the hijackers want to ransom the plane, they might shoot passengers to demonstrate that they're serious. However, a bullet-proof vest does not protect from an execution at short range, which is usually performed by targeting the head.

comment Can a US citizen entering the EU in Germany travel through Switzerland without further ado?
Good point regarding the highway tax, though if it's simply a trip around Lake Constance, they are unlikely to take a highway.

comment Walking the Caminito Del Rey, or part of it, with children
@gmauch: Although this answer doesn't give a hard minimum age threshold, it indicates that there may be a practical age threshold - if the kids aren't used to walking 5km (or the parents can't carry them for that distance), you can't really do that excursion.
