comment A hotel wants my card details (for payment). Is this safe?
@jwenting: they can't charge you the full rate for the risk though, only when it actually happens. And I've never heard of a hotel offering rooms at below-market rate; there is no transparent "spot market" where that would make sense.

comment A hotel wants my card details (for payment). Is this safe?
@jwenting: No. The point is: if you don't show up and they give your room to someone else, they did not in fact "hold that room for you"; they lost nothing and thus have no grounds to charge you. A contract that states they'll charge you anyway is not enforceable, at least here in Germany.

Note that hotels are actually not allowed to charge you anything and also give your room to someone else - if you show up late you can at the very least get your money back.

comment Are medical doctors legally doctors wherever they are?
@Tor-Einar Jarnbjo: perhaps not to the same degree, but in many (if not most) jurisdictions, people are held liable for damages incurred by gross negligence, and the standard for what constitutes gross negligence when providing first aid are different for doctors than for laypersons.

comment What were the loud sirens I heard in South Korea?
The blog post you cite seems to explain it quite detailed: "Civil Defense Drill. It occurs five times a year nationwide in South Korea." - what more do you want to know?
