In the US at least, minors are not allowed to sit in the Emergency Exit rows--they don't have the strength to open the doors, for one reason.

comment Passport expired while outside the US
Chasing through the pages, they do say that the proof of citizenship list is the same (that is, you can use your expired passport) but to check with the embassy that you plan to use. Here's Tijuana's.

Some countries' Customs used to let you register high value goods, but I haven't been able to find anything for the UK.

comment Bringing laptop with US keyboard layout back into the UK
Have your company prepare a paper that lists the computer, asset number, serial number etc. Does the UK have the same type of certification as a US notary public? Or put it in a sealed envelope, mail it (to get a dated postmark) to yourself, and bring it with you. Any questions, have them open it!

comment Can you freeze liquids to pass security checks?
My partner was told by TSA that he could have kept his Philly cream cheese in his carry-on IF it had been frozen. He was flying LAX-ATL-JHB.

comment Impact of not having life insurance on sponsoring B2 VISA for parents?
Form asks about life insurance and its cash value. Don't worry about it; just use zero (or whatever the instructions say to do). Not everyone has life insurance.

comment What artsy/museumy/culturalish stuff is there to do in Indianapolis?
Do you have car access? Like planes? There's a huge aviation museum at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton (2 hrs away).
