comment What fictitious wilderness animals are there as tourist attractions?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about Outdoors, as per our scope. WedaPashi's comment is a possible option, but even that is likely to be more suited to our sister site, Travel.

comment Luggage was stopped by customs (we learned about it after our flight)
Virgin Atlantic and British Airways have always sorted me out rapidly. Emirates was good too.

comment Do I have to enter the UK on my UK passport?
A lot of the world really isn't that different. The US is, yes, but most countries carry on doing things in better or worse ways. After all, despite the public nature of 9/11 many other countries had to deal with far bigger terrorist problems.

comment What should I do after buying an airplane ticket?
Joe - they can charge you money to print the pass at the airport, or they can deny you boarding. It's quite simple.

comment What should I do after buying an airplane ticket?
Richard, some airlines in the UK may require a passport on domestic flights - I'm thinking Ryanair specifically, although they may have since relaxed the rule to include driver's licence.

Unfortunately the UK seems to follow the US in a lot of these decisions...

If i were an attacker that is exactly how i would think. I'm just puzzled as to exactly what these guys are going to check for.

comment English speaking Music Schools or private tutors for saxophone lessons in Stuttgart (Germany)
This seems off topic here to me. It isn't to do with travel, but may be applicable on expat, as @Relaxed said

comment OK we are all adults here, so really, how on earth should I live without bidet?
Actually - with the additional answers here, I think this should probably be merged with the other question.

comment Why are there holes in ice cubes in airplanes?
This is incorrect - your answer merely lists side effects. DavidG has the correct answer.

comment Why are there holes in ice cubes in airplanes?
This is the correct answer. The most efficient ice makers (and the majority of industrial ice makers) are not those that cool the surface, but those that use refrigerated metal prongs that stick down into the water pool. As the water freezes around the prongs, they rotate out of the pool and deposit the ice into a vessel.

comment Can one get deported from the UK if I don't have a transit visa?
When you say intermediate stop - do you mean spent time in UK, or remained in transit in the airport between flights.

comment Is it legal to ask for my information?
You may find that providing incorrect data is actually illegal in some jurisdictions, as the carrier may have to provide this data to customs etc.!

comment Am I expected to tip wait staff in Europe?
xorsyst - it is expected at a restaurant. The amount may vary, but if the service is good, 10% is the norm.
