comment Non-EU citizen applying UK visa, return ticket from France, should I book a return from UK for UK visa appliation?
Your train ticket from London-Paris should be sufficient. You need to show how you plan to leave the UK, but you are not required to leave by air!

comment Why is it difficult/how to make it easier for Americans to understand Australian accents?
I live in the middle of New Hampshire, not exactly a huge tourist destination (at this time of year, anyway). I last spoke to an Australian in person four weeks ago. Maybe I just have a wider circle of friends...

comment Buying a phone in the US
The US version of the Nexus 5 does not support the LTE frequency bands used in the UK, (3, 7 and 20) so you will not get 4G data. If this is important to you, buy the non-US model.

comment Any first-hand information on American “chip and no PIN” cards in the U.K.?
You're describing two completely different chips. The EMV chip is a smart card that requires physical contact with a reader; the latter is an RFID/NFC chip which is contactless. They are not compatible.
