comment Unplanned backpacking across several European countries
Even if you don't spend the money, simply having it will help with your visa application, as EU countries require a minimum per day of cash available to you (*varies a bit by country).

comment Speeding tickets in the US (CA, AZ, NV)

Having seen some of the innards of Sabre GDS (parts of which date back to the 1970s) I am not nearly as confident as you are about its security. But that's a discussion for another site...

comment To wait or not to wait - regarding a particular Airplane price
I would guess that those are "last minute" discounts for seats the airline has not yet been able to fill. After all, those depart tomorrow!
