comment How to hide your bodily odors after a long flight?
@MarkMayo that's a non sequitur. You imply that nobody has ever asked or ever will ask a question with an obvious answer. As for the second point it was the subjectivity I was pointing out: "There's a way to get a show but it's pricey" vs "It's only fifty bucks for a shower". From the comments it apparently was actually obvious to others. d-;

comment What is the use of all these towels?
Some of the answers are getting a bit silly. OP is not asking for imaginitive uses for towels, he's asking what their intended uses are. I think that's fair, like wondering what the extra forks are for at a fancy restaurant.

+1 rushing = bad, air con = good, as far as sweat and later odour is concerned.

I find the lack of exercise on a flight means feet aren't a problem unless you're a stinkyfoot type person. And if you are a stinkyfoot type person then spare socks won't cut it - you'll want odour-absorbing insoles or just don't take your shoes off. Armpit smell seems to be the major part of air travel body odour and it's the smell that's easiest to deal with in the confines of a plane.

@DanielB: Yeah Mark, bless him, can't resist answering even when answers are really too obvious (-: 30 euros is reasonable? Wow that's almost my reasonable 3-day total living expenses. Subjectivity and all that (-;

comment What is the use of all these towels?
I think it's worth asking about differing regional customs out of curiosity. It's just like chopsticks. You can ask for a fork but it's never wrong to ask how to use the chopsticks if you're interested.

comment How to hide your bodily odors after a long flight?
I have pre-departure but post-checkout showers all the time in all kinds of hotels, hostels, guest houses. I'm at the cheap end but it would surprise me if cheap places offer more services. Just ask, but it probably won't be the shower in the room you checked out of. For all the other points carrying deodorant and spare T-shirts in your daypack / cabin bag and washing your armpits at public restrooms is good enough and more than some people would do.

Any takers after all?

comment How to hide your bodily odors after a long flight?
No puzzle here. 1) everybody's a bit stinky at the end of a long flight so we're all equal which makes not so awkward. 2) you can wash your armpits in the plane's toilet and change into the spare shirt in your carry on luggage. 3) once you've de-planed there's more spacious bathrooms in the airports when you can freshen up a bit more thoroughly. After you collect your checked luggage you can even get to those dangerous items like shampoo and toothbrush (-:

comment Australian resident working in the UK - Can I apply for a French Visa from the UK?
As an Aussie you don't need a visa to visit France. I have no idea if you current residency in the UK gives you the right to work in France - that could be an "expat question" - we don't aim to be expert in the expat area. Aussies can get a working holiday visa for France though.

It may or may not be subjective depending on how major clear obvious the differences are. So no need to jump the gun on that. But it would help if Andrew specified what he prefers in a lounge.

comment How do you choose a restaurant when travelling?
Full with locals is always good. Full with tourists might be bad - they could have come on a tour bus. But for ethnic restaurants the opposite may well be true. In a Chinatown in a western country look for places full with Chinese etc.

comment How do you choose a restaurant when travelling?
This can break down when the guidebooks find a hidden gem that then gets corrupted by the influx of tourists using the guidebook. Apart from this, owners, managers, chefs, and cooks can change or leave and this can make a huge difference. This too applies more to hidden gems than to well known or high end places trying to maintain a reputation.

comment Can you search for a job when using a tourist visa (B-2) in the US
I've found the terminology "seeking" quite often in official looking stuff too. But I'm voting you up because can quote an official source. I'm not withdrawing my answer. It is what I've heard over the years so if I got it wrong I'm happy to let everybody vote the other answers to the top and vote my down.

comment What happens if you don't have a passport photo when you get to the Laos border for a visa-on-arrival?
Well HaLaBi's answer got it through his research and everybody voted for it, mine just fleshed it out with my particular story. I think I'll reward him.

I think this is another case of a good answer actually making a broad question good enough. Don't close.
