comment How common is open carry of firearms in the USA?
The answer I would vote for is, ironically, in a close-voter's answer to why they voted to close on meta.

comment What does “Resident” mean in the context of car rental in US?
The legal interpretations of "resident" are manifold. Even the IRS and US Immigration use different interpretations of the word "resident". Providing the wrong country of residence won't stop you from renting a car, but it will certainly nullify insurance coverage and loss-damage waivers.

comment What does “Resident” mean in the context of car rental in US?
If you really think it matters, you need to get a definition, in writing, from whomever you are entering into an agreement with (eg. Avis). I've done this several times and usually there isn't actually a clear definition. In the case of ICBC, for example, their policy is to not define resident and defer to the court if/when the determination of residency is relevant (like to determine whether you're policy applies after an accident).

What are you basing this assertion on? I have never found the definition of resident to be anywhere near this straightforward.

comment Do I have to declare an iPhone 6 when entering China?
Sure. Every country has specific laws. That's why that other question has a different answer for each country/customs area.

comment Non-owner car liability insurance companies in the US
I just called Dairyland. Apparently they require you to be a "US resident". Their definition of "US resident" is "residing in the USA for 10 months out of 12".

comment Insurance against flight delays
This makes me wonder what the insurer considers "extra reasonable costs of travel and accommodation you need to continue your trip". I bet it's not an equivalent TGV ticket. It may turn out to be whatever the cheapest and slowest form of public transportation there is.

comment Chances of receiving 2nd H1-B visa after quitting 1st H1-B job
@DJClayworth I see from the help center that questions about work visas are indeed off-topic, but do you have a reference to support that questions here are restricted to "recreational" travel? The only reference I found expressly welcomes questions about business travel.

FWIW, CGP Grey explores rather thoroughly both "What is a country?" and "What is Vatican City" on his youtube channel.
