comment How to reach Dam Square from Schiphol airport?
Be careful of one thing: if you buy a R/T ticket, it is only good for that day! Not a 24-hour day, that calendar day. I got zapped for $30 by the conductor.

comment What is proper etiquette on bringing one night stands to a hotel room?
The Suk-11 in Bangkok also bans guests-of-guests: I saw one poor girl who had to sit at the table outside for 30 minutes, with the security guard and the desk clerk and the other guests eying her, while her new-found boyfriend went up to his room (for a change of clothing I assume). How this is more "wholesome" than letting two adults do what they like in their own room, I cannot say.

comment Turning off GPS on a flight?
That's rather wishful thinking. A GPS does not deliberately transmit a signal, of course, but all electronic devices give off some interference. The question is, how much?

comment What rights do I have if my flight is cancelled?
You can see why equipment issues might be treated differently. You don't want some guy in an office asking himself, "Do I want to cost the company $30,000 and lose my annual bonus or do I want to risk the lives of 200 people who I don't know?"

comment Tactics to avoid getting harassed by corrupt police
Wow, that's pretty much the worst advice I can think of (beyond the "calm and polite" part). Why would you want other police involved? Are you under the grotesque misapprehension that you found one bad apple? Most country with significant corruption, the corruption is endemic. And "a written copy" of a rule? Saying "please punch me in the mouth" would be more polite and have the same effect. And even honest cops don't subscribe to the notion of "let the pain-in-the-ass ones go" -- piss them off enough, they'll find a reason to hang to you.

@dbkk -- some countries including, for better or worse, the US.

comment Tactics to avoid getting harassed by corrupt police
My point exactly: the cop was thinking "I'll get this idiot off the sidewalk and make a few bucks." I'm sure the cop would have been happy to drop your friend off at his hotel if it wasn't far.
