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).

comment Are there hotels where children are not allowed?
I think you're right; that it's only for permanent housing ("family status"), but it would likely still cause an uproar if the hotel wasn't a very high-end resort or a tiny B&B.

comment What is the LONGEST passenger flight (with a flight number) in the world?
"Longest" flights are always going to include crossing the equator. Once you have to do that, you can't take advantage of a near-polar route.

An exercise/lap pool (with or without one of those motors that you swim against) or bigger? Can it be indoors or outdoors?

comment Why does the TSA allow two 3-ounce containers but not one 6-ounce container?
When I later looked at the TSA site that @nate-eldridge linked to, TSA said that 3.4 oz / 100 ml is adequate for a short trip. So knowing people really complain if they can't take anything, this is the smallest reasonable amount.
