@user4050 Baking soda is not an organic chemical so would show up differently to caffeine.

comment I have applied for UK entertainer visa and it got refused
Surely if you've been booked to play the UK by an organizer, then they're also responsible for sorting your visas out, and fixing any problems like this. You'd be best off asking them to sort it out.

comment How do customs and immigration work in a sailboat?
I believe as you approach the port you can put out a call on marine radio channel 16 to the harbour master and they will advise you on the proper procedure.

comment What to take on a 9-Day Bahamas cruise (specifically undies)
I'm with pnuts here, being a few pairs of pants short isn't the end of the world, especially as it sounds like you're only going to be wearing each pair for about 4 hours max. Anyway as @MarkMayo said, there's laundry on the ship. I imagine there's also a place to buy extra underwear.

comment Which language(s) is most useful for backpacking Africa?
I'm not an authority so I'm not putting this as an answer, but you best bet is with the colonial languages. After English, French is the next most common official language in Africa, followed by Arabic and Portuguese. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Can I fly with a gold bar?
You are flying it to Moscow, so you might get some scrutiny at heathrow from customs as they might think you're trying to violate the EU financial sanctions against Russia. Seriously though if your boss is too cheap to pay for a bonded courier for his gold bullion, He deserves whatever bad happens to his cargo. I Imagine though that your boss wants to avoid a bonded courier as this transfer is a little shady. If that's the case I'd get the hell out of there if i were you.

comment Is it okay for holiday-makers to enter the United Kingdom with a single ticket?
Surely it'd be cheaper to get a return and just pay the administration charge to change the return flight than it would be to pay for two single tickets

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
It's also worth noting that your luggage and chocolates will go to the hold via the baggage handling facility and then driven out to the plane. While the hold of the plane may not be that hot, you luggage could still get quite hot if it spends a few minutes sitting out on the tarmac

comment Date Limitation of Low Fares in Far East
You might want to have a look at star allience's asia airpass (staralliance.com/en/fares/airpasses/asia-airpass) or oneworld's Visit asia pass (oneworld.com/flights/single-continent-fares/visit-asia) You can get some pretty cheap flight deals with that.

I've never encountered that. Sometimes they will ask you for a separate form of ID though.
