comment Do airlines have to check the visa status before selling a ticket?
Yes, this is actually what has been the procedure to get a Schengen visa for Russian citizens -- you simply buy the ticket and pay the visa application fee, and you basically automatically get the visa -- you cannot get the visa without the ticket.

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
@Karlson, are you trying to claim that real time traffic is immune to someone jumping on a highway, but traffic patterns aren't?

@Karlson, rain and sun affecting traffic in a major metro area? i don't think so.

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
@Karlson, that is not true; depending on the area, traffic patterns are very different; in the SF Bay Area, almost all highways are jammed up between 15:00 and 19:00, whereas other areas are more like 16:00 to 18:00. I'm currently in LA, I have never been here, and I have no idea what their traffic situation is like. Waiting until real time to see the traffic congestion to get to a given place on time is kinda like asking for trouble — it may been too late...

comment Is there a way to make USPS discard Standard Postage mail?
@NateEldredge, yes, exactly; I think they also return/discard all of your Presorted Standard mail if your mailbox overflows, whilst keeping the First Class one (e.g. in the overflow bin). I just wanted to see if there's a way to not have the mailbox overflow in the first place.

comment How to receive goods ordered on the internet, while in the USA
Not entirely correct -- e.g. UPS Stores are not "branches", and they generally charge extra fees for keeping packages; there's often only one UPS place for a whole huge city where you can have your package held for free (just as any city has only one Gen Dev); however, unlike Gen Dev, such UPS holdup is generally very far away from the centre of the city.
