comment Second most photographed building in the southern hemisphere - why?
@RoflcoptrException I've added a question on Skeptics. The claim is even repeated on Wikipedia.

@RoflcoptrException I found the claim repeated here.

comment Second most photographed building in the southern hemisphere - why?
A different example: I have seen Spain being described as the second most mountainous country in Europe, and I have no clue what that even means.

15/20 euro for less than 10 km by bus from Malpensa to Gallarate? That looks more like taxi prices than bus prices. Do you mean something else?

@drat I found this bus which also involves changing only once…

comment Malpensa Aeropuerto – Gallarate by bus — where and how to buy tickets?
I believe I found another option with this bus, if I read it correctly there should be a bus on working days departing Terminal 2 at 19:05, arriving Gallarate 19:13, no word about the price or how to pay though. Not sure what it says here though.

comment Malpensa Aeropuerto – Gallarate by bus — where and how to buy tickets?
Normally I land at 17:50 at Terminal 2. Comazzi bus to Domodossola departs at 20:50 and arrives normally a bit after 22:00. If I manage to catch the 19:58 train from Gallarate I arrive Domodossola at 20:43. It may be worth trying and I believe it should be possible, but despite the short distance (7.5 km) it seems not so easy to reach Gallarate from Malpensa. Even Busto Arsizio is a big detour, in particular from Terminal 2.

comment Malpensa Aeropuerto – Gallarate by bus — where and how to buy tickets?
I already mentioned that one in my question. The downside is that it departs 3 hours after my flight lands at MXP. If the flight is on time and landing formalities go smoothly, I can arrive to Domodossola hours earlier than this bus does.

comment Malpensa Aeropuerto – Gallarate by bus — where and how to buy tickets?
@drat And it's only 7.5 km from Malpensa Terminal 2 to the Gallarate train station (where the fast train does stop), whereas it's 92 km from Malpensa to Milano Centrale and back to Gallarate. It's an extreme detour (worse from Terminal 2 than Terminal 1). So I would probably rather take a taxi to Gallarate than the roundabout route via Milano Centrale, and I don't expect 7.5 km by taxi to cost much more than 92 km by bus+train…

comment Malpensa Aeropuerto – Gallarate by bus — where and how to buy tickets?
@drat True, but the last fast train from Milano Centrale departs only 90 minutes after my flight lands in Malpensa, so although I might make it, it doesn't leave a lot of margin to assume I will. Thank you for the reminder that this option exists, though; it is worth trying if arrival and following formalities go smoothly.

@drat My actual destination is also in Switzerland but I can't make it there the same day. Milano Centrale is quite a detour.

comment Where can I try an autonomous driving car?
I'm not sure if garages would be happy to let people test drive if they have no intention to buy the car.

Apparently, they are for rent in the UK for £40 per hour.

@jpatokal Ah, right. So it's somewhere in-between.

comment Where can I try an autonomous driving car?
There's plenty of autonomous trains/metro systems around and the experience is not nearly the same, so I don't think that really answers the question.

comment Do I still need to bring/print e-ticket reference number of I check in on-line and print my boarding pass?
When I say e-ticket, I mean the booking reference, which I unterstand to be the same thing.
