comment Is it prohibited to lie down (and fall asleep) on a commercial flight?
Yup, I've been on one very empty very long flight (no idea why, there was no weather event I was aware of) and they encouraged us to spread out to sleep better.

comment Visiting national parks in the USA in Jan-Feb
It all comes down to how severe an environment you're willing to accept. I've been on roads in national parks that will cease to be roads when the snow comes (there will be no attempt to plow) but the park per se remains open. I've been in national parks where there's nobody at the entrance when it's late but the road remains open. (Obviously you can't pay in that case, you're only supposed to enter then if you have already paid or have some sort of pass.)

comment Does night-driving-friendly, polarized eye-wear exist?
I've never seen lenses that were both tinted and polarized. What looks like tint on a polarized lens is the fact that it's rejecting the light that doesn't match it's polarization. Thus I think you're on a hopeless quest.

comment Are battery packs allowed in hand luggage?
20,000 mA-hr @ 5 volts is 100 W-hr--right at the limit.

comment Are battery packs allowed in hand luggage?
It's China's reaction to addressing the issue of people removing the markings showing the capacity is too high--simply define anything unmarked as being too big. It's an anti-cheating measure but as far as I'm concerned they could apply some common sense to the small ones.

@MichaelHampton I'm not the one that had the problem. I encountered someone online that had run into it.

comment Where I can find a guide to the laws of the United States?
@phoog It's not "just happens"--the feds applied a lot of pressure to establish the drinking age at 21. Besides, how it came about isn't what he's asking.

US: Drinking age is 21. Whether you can drink in public is a matter of local law.

comment Can I have a Geiger counter in my hand luggage?
@Imray Setting off a bomb is normally something that happens fast enough that whether you are being discreet or not won't really matter. The two attempts at US planes failed because the bombs were duds, not because passengers stopped them. (Of course the passengers acted when they realized what was up but the only reason they had a chance was because the bomb had already failed.)

That's why I stressed the trusted part.

The best approach is to give the pouch to a trusted traveling companion when you're in the shower. Lacking that I would be more inclined to put the pouch in something waterproof for the shower rather than actually carry a waterproof pouch.

comment How can Singaporeans studying in a Western country protect themselves from racist hate crime?
There are inner-city areas that wouldn't be a good idea to go to but that applies everywhere and for every race.
