comment Why did airport security swab my hands with wet paper?
@Insane further, they typically swab stuff you've been touching with the theory that you touched that stuff before you washed your hands. Not foolproof, but since it's quick, they can do it a lot, and perhaps it occasionally turns something up.

comment What is the most effective way to use United (MileagePlus) miles?
Flights from A to B are never as good a redemption as from A to B to nearby C - real tickets cost more than A to B, redemptions don't. Wait for the opportunity for a good ticket redeem and you will do better. Also there are times when a short notice ticket would be a lot of dollars, but oddly redemptions are available. These can be golden.
