comment Transportation from St Pancras to Isle of Wight
Agree that your destination on the IOW is the important factor: public transport on the Island is not great. The Lymington route involves changing trains, but it's very easy and is less far from train to ferry, so there's very little in it.

comment What is the latest public transport I can take in the evening from London Heathrow to Bournemouth?
The actual date is also important - public transport is seriously affected by bank holidays, and may be affected by engineering/roadworks.

comment Is it safe to travel to Dubai if you're an atheist?
There was a recent case (Saudi, I think) where the court decided that anyone born in Arabia was automatically a Muslim; so the defendant (despite bringing witnesses to say that he had been a Christian since childhood) was an apostate, and hence his life was forfeit.

comment Is it more expensive to buy airplane tickets around Christmas?
Prices go up when demand rises and supply does not. Mostly this is a good description of Christmas, but some routes are actually cheaper on Christmas day (the aircraft still have to be positioned).

comment How to figure if it is safe to travel to the area I am interested in?
@CMaster: The FCO is well aware of the temptation to say "Everywhere has some danger" and tries to keep the advisories at a sensible level. But it is unavoidable that somebody who travels uneventfully despite an advisory will be as mildly disparaging as yourself, whereas an actual problem that the FCO did not warn of will bring everything from insults on Twitter to a Royal Commission. In niether case does anyone ask what could have been foreseen.

comment Can delays permit me to taken an earlier train?
it is an interesting point whether if you are booked on the 12.30 you can travel on the late-running 12.00, which is a service to your destination departing at 12.30. Most companies would say no, but I suspect a lawyer would disagree

comment How to leave UK ASAP? (EEA National, But No Travel Document)
You never need a passport to re-enter your own country, though the officials may well delay you just because of the inconvenience. And your suggestion about the invention of passports is -idiosyncratic. But this is still a very good answer.
