comment Do ships sink nowadays?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgaria_%28ship%29 - the crew forgot to close the portholes in stormy weather and the fully intact ship filled with water and sunk. 122 people died. That was on an artificial lake, not even in the ocean.

comment Must I register if I am not required to have a visa for entering Russia?
Could you please replace "try the Google Translate for Russian, can't find the English version" wording with something like "English version at the bottom"?

comment Where is the Asia-Europe divide and where can we cross it?
Does anyone have an idea of what that fence is for in such a remote area?

comment Where is the Asia-Europe divide and where can we cross it?
Yandex.Schedules confirm that trains stop at Polyarnyi Ural for one minute. The obelisk is about half mile from the station so it's hardly possible to leave the train, walk to the obelisk and back before the trains departs and one will have to use one train to get to the station and another to get from there. I'd guess the views are scenic but have no idea of what threats can exist in such remote and nearly inhabitant region.

comment Indian passport with two missing (ripped out) pages - should I get a new one to enter the US?
Worth noting that pages are often numbered and so missing pages have good chances to be noticed even if they were removed very cleanly.

comment Which digits should I eliminate when giving my number to foreign travellers so as to not confuse them?
YES!!! So many times I've seen taxis with local numbers in small cities (such as 5-55-55) and there was no chance I'd ever dial that from my cell phone without knowing which 5 or six number of local code I also need.

comment Traveling with a lot of luggage at Heathrow - getting help?
@BurhanKhalid To me obtaining a cart sounds like a lot of help compared to carrying five suitcases on my own.

comment How to remove airlines/security tag stickers from suitcases?
@pnuts: Containing some amounts of oil does not necessarily make something suitable for lubrication. Other components matter too.

I'd be cautious about WD-40 - it contains some amounts of oil and oil can be very bad for plastics.
