comment What are my options for transportation around the Great Plains (US)?
@Droogans Thanks for pointing this out! I actually hadn't realized that Megabus operates west of Chicago...I knew they were expanding in the south, but apparently missed announcements about expanding westward. Definitely good to know.

@iHaveacomputer Megabus and Bolt Bus are the two "cheap" bus companies here - they sell at at least one seat on every bus for just $1. (Though they're behaving like airlines these days and jacking up prices for holiday travel so that it's, in some cases, double or triple what their cost used to be.) Because they're cheap, popular routes do sell out regularly (at least on the East Coast - never used Megabus outside of the Boston-NY-Philadelphia-Baltimore area.)

comment Why would you wrap your luggage in plastic?
Assumptions, in my opinion, do not make the type of great, canonical answer that SE sites strive for. (I agree with the general principle behind your answer - preventing unauthorized/unwanted tampering with luggage - but don't like that it's an assumption, and it doesn't cover the multitude of reasons for this behavior.)

comment Dealing with the 'unclean hand' when travelling (if you're left-handed)
@MarkMayo my comment wasn't directed toward you, just anyone who may have potentially replied with the "I don't care, I do what I want" mentality. :) I also find using the "right" hand difficult most of the time, but I haven't found a technique that words for me other than concentrating really hard. I would love if someone else has a better way!

Also, on a related note but not really part of your question: I don't think it's ever really okay to "just not care" about things that other people might feel strongly about. When you travel, you're a guest in someone else's home, even if that home is on a country level rather than an individual house. So you should respect their feelings and customs. (Just my 2¢.)

I don't think it's an exaggeration; I think that, like any behavior, it varies person to person and region to region. I've had merchants in India refuse to take money from me that I accidentally offered with my left hand. They didn't yell and scream and tell me how disgusting I was, just silently refused. shrug Totally depends on the person, I guess.
