comment Sweets as gifts in lands untouched by modern dentistry
@AndrewGrimm fair enough, I believe most tourist advice about candy is referring to dispensing it to random children you see on the street. If you want to bring a box of it as a gift to your hosts I think that's entirely different and less of an issue. I certainly assumed that handfuls to random kids is what you were referring to, but it's true you don't mention that at all - I just assumed.

comment Which currency for play money?
You might try this on lifehacks.stackexchange.com - it's a place for asking off-the-wall questions and solving things unusually. I think using real currency to sub for play money might qualify.

comment Is it possible to avoid being sniffed by dogs at Heathrow airport and possibly other airports?
Good answer, but to be fair, the advice from a bunch of well-meaning strangers on the internet about the dogs in the airport, how they act, and how to avoid them is likely to be better than the advice on that topic from your faith leader. It's just that advice about your faith and practices is likely to be better from the faith leader. Yes?

comment Frequent Traveller to the UK Does Not Want to Fill Out Landing Cards, Be Interviewed
well, I don't need a visa because I'm a Canadian and I only go once or twice a year so I think that means I can't apply. Bummer. I love my Nexus and would be delighted to have a UK equivalent.

is there an explanation for why you have to be a frequent visitor? Most other programs allow the applicants to decide if their travels are frequent enough to make using the program "worth it" and don't require a minimum number of visits.

comment Is it possible to avoid being sniffed by dogs at Heathrow airport and possibly other airports?
@Lohoris please don't bring your feud with the OP onto my answer and start to argue with other commenters. None of us can settle the religious aspects of this question by hashing it out amongst ourselves. I've suggested the OP consult an imam for that and truly, none of us can do better than that. If religion was logical and people would change their ways because someone came at them with a barrage of questions that exposed a logic flaw, this would be a very different world. But it isn't.
