comment Is it possible to bring fudge from New Zealand to UK?
Surely fudge does contain high levels of dairy products?

comment Is it rude to talk on a mobile phone for the whole journey, when travelling alone in a London black taxi?
"Drivers intuit whether passengers want to chat .. not talking until they’re sure the passenger wants to converse". Often true, sometimes very untrue.

A faggot is a meatball, or possibly a bundle of sticks.

Asking for "gents" and "ladies" is OK too.

comment Simple, safe beach towns in southern California with at least a supermarket in walking distance?
It's about 5 miles from the beach though, so it doesn't meet that requirement.

comment Are there places where it isn't legal to take a taxi that isn't in the front of a line?
In reality London taxis often refuse trips. But less so at ranks with a queue.

comment Fastest way to get from Heathrow Airport to Knightsbridge London?
I suspect that a pre-booked motorbike taxi would be slightly faster (and more expensive) in most traffic conditions. But obviously not public transport.

comment Problems with certain times occuring twice (or not at all) on night of daylight saving time to standard time transition
"In most of Europe, when the clocks are set from daylight saving time to standard time, at 3 am the clocks are set back to 2 am" - actually "The [EU] shifts all at once, at 01:00 UTC [i.e. GMT]". This could be 01:00, 02:00 or 03:00 local time. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time

comment LAX to Anaheim - how much slower is the Super Shuttle than a cab?
Orbiting LAX in a SuperShuttle until we'd gained enough passengers to escape is one of the most frustrating starts to a trip I have yet encountered. I guess the reverse trip isn't as bad, but I got a cab (not as far as Anaheim, though)
