comment What happens when an ATM in a country you're travelling through eats your card?
I've never found a bank that didn't have 24x7 numbers for lost cards, normally with the ability to access reverse charged calls if you're international. You do have the phone number from the back of all your cards stored somewhere, right?

comment What if I don't take my last transfer at British Airways
You can book this on ba.com using the "Multi-city/stopovers" option. Most other booking websites will have something with a similar name.

comment Does the Lao visa on arrival at the Thai border require a full blank passport page for Australians?
The top image is the same as what I have, but this was obtained via a consulate, not at the border.

comment Indian Visa in expired passport, new passport with husband's surname
The biggest risk is not being denied entry to the country, but being denied boarding of the flight. If a check-in agent doubts you have the correct documents, then you're not boarding the flight, and as in this case there's no clear statement anywhere that you don't need the marriage certificate, it's worth taking it to be sure.

comment How many jetways are used when boarding a Boeing 777 in SFO?
Stairs are common at some of the worlds largest airports, where they frequently use buses to get people between the terminal and the plane. eg, I've used stairs countless times to board/deplane 747s and 777s (as well as many narrow-bodies) at both Frankfurt and London Heathrow, which are certainly not "tourist route" airports. To stay on the original topic, no, they do not use stairs at SFO.
