comment Why does my phone's GPS not work in China?
@DavidRicherby I think it measures the pollution in the air. Alternatively, the air is so thick with pollution that the GPS signals are blocked.

@kundor I guess Potter has at most 18 days before his private is discovered by the hoi polloi.

comment Can I live on an unoccupied island?
@DavidRicherby I doubt that. Here is a wikipedia article on new islands en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_new_islands. Zalzala Koh is about 6 months old. Are all those satellite photos within the last 6 months?

comment Is a tour of a US Embassy possible?
@neubert go to evisaforms.state.gov/acs/make_default.asp?pc=LND click "Request notarial and other services not listed above." and make the appointment. I think the restroom and water fountain are the only no-fee services.

@neubert if you want to visit the US embassy then go for it. You can use their restroom or drink water from their drinking faucet. You paid for it with your tax dollars.

In my experience it is possible to enter US embassies. They provide citizen services after all. It is like the DMV. If you want to go to the DMV to watch people waiting in line, no one is stopping you.

comment Is there a legal limit to the amount of cash one can carry on domestic US flights
@smci Just use a TSA approved lock. I don't think any "bad people" have the master key. :)

comment Can I keep my old passport when I have it renewed and a new one issued?
With respect to the US, you can keep old passports. An expired US passport is still proof of US citizenship. You can show up at the US border with an expired US passport and be let in. It is still valid ID for many other purposes.

comment Good way to avoid bus luggage stress?
As a thief, I would just wait until the bus was about to leave. If you get off the bus to chase me, the bus will leave without you. Maybe I'll just take your bag off the bus and stand around. Your alert will go off when you leave the bag behind.

comment When travelling do I have to keep the passport with me all the time?
@HenningMakholm not necessarily maybe you are supposed to remain in a safe place where you don't let your passport out of your sight. Or you could get a second passport.

comment Difference between “visa not required” and “visa on arrival”?
I have done both. My experience with the VOA with respect to Vietnam is that although I did not have to get a visa before traveling, something had to be done for me before hand. I think someone wrote a letter on my behalf which put me in a list of persons approved for visa on arrival. It was definitely easier than getting a visa, but I suspect if I had not been on the list I would have had problems.

comment Why there is passport check at the check-in counter, immigration and even at the gate?
I've had an in-ride id check (not with planes but with buses). Everyone had to show ID prior to boarding. In the middle of the ride, the bus stopped and an inspector wanted to see everyone's ID. Then at the destination we all had to show ID to get off. It was retarded.

comment How to receive goods ordered on the internet, while in the USA
What are doing when you are travelling for work? visiting clients? visiting a satellite office. It might be easier to receive things at the office.

comment Why do Indian citizens need many visas?
The US will - as a last resort - loan airfare money to a stranded American. If you are the mayor of a foreign city and you see that one of your social burdens (beggars, criminals, etc) is an American citizen, you can call the nearest US consulate and there is a good chance they will relieve you. In contrast, I think you are stuck with the Indian social burden.
