comment How to successfully haggle / bargain in markets
Unless you are haggling for the enjoyment of it (which some do) the only criterion you can use is what you are willing to pay. The actual market value or cost to the trader is almost irrelevant. Sometimes you will pay over, sometimes under the real value - as long as you are paying what you think is reasonable, that's fine.

comment Best way to make my ears pop?
@MarkMayo - keep one cheek taught while allowing the other to relax and loosen the opening to that eustachian tube only. It gets really easy with practice.

comment How to avoid having my drink spiked in a bar
as @zeocrash says, I'd feel much safer in Japan than some areas in other countries. I don't think you should believe all the bad hype you have heard.

Edited as it was too localised (and not for good reasons). This should be answerable for all countries.

I think this isn't Japan specific as this sort of thing can happen anywhere. Despite scaremongering it doesn't appear to be that common anywhere though, but some sensible tips on how to avoid this are probably useful globally.

comment Is there any other country than Germany with no speed limits?
Oh - you can go really fast on the Isle of Man. There are even some straight bits. But the fun comes from the fact that you can go really fast on all those twists and turns. Much more exciting than autobahns, which while very functional, are boring to drive on.

Cheers, @Rincewind42 - you'd think being an Orcadian and growing up there I wouldn't have made such an error :-) Have updated as per your comment.
