Um, this question totally isn't objective. It's a poll. @MarkMayo thoughts?

@jwenting But the History Channel is so educational! I would never know of the rich cultural contributions a 20 year snow plow made without Pawn Stars.

comment How can I tell hotels exist that aren't on the booking web sites?
@Vince3 is that a joke? Sabre one has over 100k hotels and adds weekly. That's only one GDS. Aggregators use several.

comment How much should I expect to pay for a 3 hour “longtail” boat ride around Ko Phi Phi Island?
@KevinBurke That actually sounds pretty reasonable. You might be able to get it down to ~1000, but unless you're Thai good luck!

@NateEldredge Actually there was a pretty big string of these kinds of robberies on the Mediterranean in 2010. Organized crime rings were stealing the NO2 from dental supplies and food packing companies. They mysteriously stopped without any arrests though.

comment What equipment should I travel with to increase the odds of good internet and phone connectivity?
Good point! New Macbooks don't have an ethernet port on them, so I only drag an airport express with me when I know there's going to be a LAN connection at the hotel. @tohecz

comment What class of travel is suitable for a woman travelling alone on Indian railways?
Just read a random article about a woman traveling on a train that was only molested once in India, and it was by the TTE. My vote's fly.

comment Can I pick up my luggage between flights with the same company?
That's an insane amount of money for a short-check. You might as well use FedEx to your hotel
