@thinlyveiledquestionmark Good point, I'll rewrite it as appropriate. (I still think it's worth mention as an ancillary thing though.)

Derek Miller of Veritasium fame took the challenge and lasted for an hour with no problem, and felt that he could have gone on much longer, although there's a few things he did that might have affected that outcome.

comment Are bluetooth headphones allowed on flights in the US, particularly on United Airlines?
+1 because it's the only CORRECT one here. Just because you can get away with something doesn't mean it's actually allowed, regardless of how silly the rule that bans them is.

Just because you haven't been asked to stop using them doesn't mean they're actually allowed. Flight attendants shouldn't have to be able to tell the difference between wireless headphones and headphones with a built-in MP3 player, for example.

comment How to prevent “Delhi Belly”?
The whole reason the Chinese drink so much tea is because the water is unsafe for drinking, and boiling the water sterilizes it. This is even in the better-developed parts, such as Hong Kong. One time I made the mistake of using tap water to take an aspirin for a headache, and then very soon I had TWO problems.
