comment Male using change tables in female restrooms in Japan
Upon encountering the same issue locally, I just change the diapers where they bother everybody, outside the restroom. If someone complains to me, I ask them to forward their complaint to the chauvinist who decided that only women should change diapers. The women seem to appreciate my attitude, the men hate me!

comment What do locals call San Francisco?
This answer correctly refers to the natives. Once can only assume that the OP meant "locals" and even only in the stricter sense "European and Asian derived locals".

comment Is it safer to drive up or down a dangerous mountain road?
@user568458: I experienced this as a passenger in a taxi in Jordan in 1999. I had no idea that this is common. In that particular case, on the road from Aqaba to Petra, there actually was a fair amount of traffic and bicycles in the road, no regard for human life at all! I'll tell you about the driver passing a slower vehicle on a blind turn and us coming upon a truck passing another truck coming the other way on that same blind turn. I almost left that taxi a religious man, and yes there was a skid and sudden stop involved (no collision though).

comment How to make dining alone less awkward?
Be friendly with the locals, and you don't need to dine alone. I was once eating breakfast in Amsterdam and said "Bon Apetite" to a local girl who just sat down to eat. Best two words that I ever said in my life, lets just say that I wasn't eating alone for long!

comment What are the drawbacks of taking TWO (unconnected) indirect flights?
I got stuck in Oslo doing this once. My A->B flight arrived 12 hours late, so I missed B->C by an hour. Cost me around 700 Euros, a huge hassle, and lost a full day of a five day trip. Not worth the risk.

@JoErNanO: Thank you. The close votes are before the edit, should I mention this on meta? I've linked to another upvoted question which fits the same format, which demonstrates that this question is in the appropriate format for the site.

@GayotFow: Thank you, I've reformated the question slightly to not give the appearance of a poll. The format is bassed on this question.

Reformat to look less like a poll.
