comment Is it rude to ask if the food contains pork or alcohol?
It's dismaying that people can be so ignorant about Islam that they would need to be asked. But then, in the US we have even worse ignorance, such as people thinking that Sikhs are Muslim.

comment What are the rules to be aware of on a road with a sign that indicates rocks might fall?
@Tom: Mark has not stated that the risk is absent at particular times. His description is very accurate. Erosion is a geological process that obeys the laws of physics, not an unknowable risk that requires equal precautions under all conditions.

comment Renting a Manual Car in the US
TL;DR - The answer is no. Only a small percentage of the American population knows how to drive a manual transmission.

comment Travel agent took payment now wants more money or canceling flights?
This isn't a question that can be answered. It's a description of a business dispute.

comment Where is the quietest place on Earth?
Deep caves are probably the quietest naturally occurring places on earth, since there is no wind and no animal life. If you don't want to go on a caving expedition, the alpine zone of a mountain range can be extremely quiet when there is no wind; as with caves, these places are quiet because they're basically dead.

comment How to check a large backpack?
Some airports do not make these bags available for this purpose. An example is Geneva, where they have the bags, but there are environmental rules saying that they can only give them out for car seats, not backpacks. What has worked for me in general has been to buy a roll of packing tape and use it to wrap up all the loose parts of the pack.

comment How is the range of Google Maps new drive time feature defined?
From experimenting, it looks like the bottom end of the range never changes, no matter what date and start time you put in. Therefore this seems to be the time with no traffic, and if you put in a date and time when it's rush hour, then there may be zero probability of getting there that fast. As an example, I put in this route goo.gl/maps/GzABo , and IMO there is zero probability of completing it in 35 min during rush hour.
