comment Compensation for a flight going somewhere else
It's not clear what happened. Was the flight from B to C a scheduled flight? Was it cancelled? Did they give you an option to refund your flight?

comment Connecting flight wait time 11 hours 20 minutes - is it possible to exit to see Vancouver?
@jetset: you are right, the OP doesn't have to clear Canadian immigration if certain conditions are met and he doesn't want to leave the airport.

comment Which countries allow to work remotely on visitor visas?
+1: A few years ago Boeing invited Russian engineers on B1/B2 visas, who formally worked for Boeing Russia; but they were denied entry to the United States; see seattletimes.com/html/businesstechnology/…

comment Calling USA from Schiphol (Amsterdam)
I called from a public phone at Schiphol in 2008. The advertised rates were reasonable, but I was charged $40 for a 3-4 minute call.

The fact that you work for a US based company shouldn't be a problem.

comment Schengen visa rejected
They usually write a refusal code in the passport when they deny a visa (like 1c, 2c or 3c). What was that?

comment Is it legal for officials to hold my foreign driver's license as a guarantee for a traffic fine?
Here is an official guide for British drivers driving abroad gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/… . It says: "If you break French driving laws you can also have your UK driving licence confiscated by French Police." As I understand, most European countries have similar rules.

There is no international rule that forbids that. In fact, in many countries, when somebody is arrested, he might be asked to surrender his passport to get bail. I have no idea if it is legal in Mexico.

comment Are Australian passports expensive in comparison to other western / developed countries?
The fee for an Australian Tourist Visa (subclass 676) is AUD 230. So AUD 238 for a passport is not that bad in comparison :-)

comment How do I insure my money?
No, you cannot insure cash. To what extend your bank account is insured depends a lot on your country of residence and on your bank policies. In the US, credit card accounts are better protected from theft than debit card accounts.

comment Will I need a transit visa for transit in Stockholm in a trip from Turkey to Russia?
Unfortunately, it's not possible to post a link to this page. You need to go to a website that provides Timatic information (see travel.stackexchange.com/questions/1703/…) and fill out a form.
