comment How can two people travel/survive cheaply for two months between housing contracts?
I thought about camping as well before writing my comment, but this only works if you already have an car with enough space for 2 people and gear to travel the country. And it's in march, so unless you drive to the southern states (which costs you more in petrol!) it might get pretty cold at night in Utah, Nevada and NV.

comment Can I have a Geiger counter in my hand luggage?
Come on guys, he is obviously just trolling. With is question history of "What would happen if I do stupid sh*t on a plane/airport? Please pay attention to me!" on this site, I'm pretty sure he is already on the radar of some 3 letter agency and not allowed on airports anymore...

comment Being separated from one's young children on a flight
@StrongBad So there was one incident for ~3 Billion(!) flight passengers per year? For compassion, the chances of winning the lottery are 1:14,000,000, and the odds of dying by falling down stairs 1:2,800 and the odds of dying in burning building are 1:1,300 ...

comment Car ferries time distance
Last time i checked, it was up to the transport providers to upload and maintain their timetables to google maps to get them listed on the website. I'm sure there are some automated tools that would re-upload the data every time it changes, but this does not mean all the transport providers use them...

comment Hostel wants my Credit Card security code via email, is this legit?
@JonathanReez As far as i know a merchant is allowed to make recurring payments (such as monthly payments, subscriptions etc.) without asking you for the CVV number, but not for one-time transactions. At the company I was working for at the time, we would not get any transaction approved from the bank/payment provider without having the correct CVV number with each transaction.

comment Fixing an opened TSA lock
This is a question about DIY, and has nothing to do with Travel, TSA or what airports you have visited while it happened.

comment What is the hotel room card slot inside the room for?
Might also be useful for the room service or reception, so they can check if a room is currently occupied or if the guests are out.

comment Meaning of asterisks and binary mask in the US visa
It could be some sort of "version number" for the visa. Maybe future visa have different or additional fields, new security features or a different layout. This way the scanner would know in which place to look for things like "first name", or where a security feature such as a watermark or some UV light signature should be located on the visa.

comment Buying and insuring a car in the US for a roadtrip
Define cheaply. With a car insurance you don't just insure YOUR $2000 bucket, but also the other guys new shiny sportscar you might crash into.

comment How do I take care of valuables on a Germany trip?
Germany is rather safe. The real criminals to watch out for when backpacking are the hostels who charge you 10 Euros/day for internet.

comment What's the safest way to protect your valuable belongings from theft at the beach?
Yeah, this box seems pointless to me. Any thief will just walk away with it and open it in the convenience of his own home with standard power tools. Might as well just hide your stuff in a plastic food container and bury it in a small hole in the sand, and then place your towel on top so you can find it again ...

comment Where do I find really fast internet access in Auckland, New Zealand?
How big is "ton of data"? The city library has a daily traffic limit of 200MB per device as far as i know. It wont be fast, but you can read books while you wait :)

comment Cheap bus lines in Germany, something like Orangeways?
Deutsche Bahn prices are confusing, and you can get at least to 3 different prices for the same route, depending on which ticket you choose. You could try either the weekend ticket for EUR 44 or the saver fare for EUR 29 (up to 250km) if you don't find a bus.

comment Is there any mobile app with public transportation routes for Vitória, Brazil?
What would you do with an offline version? It wouldn't be very useful if they couldn't update the timetables in case of some unexpected disruptions like accidents, roads closed etc.
