comment Green card lottery - what does it mean?
Sorry, despite the answer I kinda think it is a bit off topic, so I tossed a close vote. I'm willing to have my mind changed though.

comment Bringing a camping knife to Japan
That is indeed good advice. Personally I bring my knife whenever I travel in Asia (as I live here, that is a lot). However, Japan is the only place I have experienced excessive discrimination by immigration. I suppose I'll just leave it.

comment Taiwan visa “maximum stay” clarification
@justinl To be frank, the immigration office isn't the place to ask and may supply you with bad information. Not that it is wrong in this case, but it has happened to me before with another issue. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs generally has everything up to date, though.
