The provisions you are referring to apply only to US permanent residents, not all "US residents".

comment Inexpensive hotel to stay in Helsinki on my 24 hr layover for less than $200 USD
It's also 171 euro, which is more than US$200. Even the Hilton is 1/3rd less...

comment do i have to retrieve my luggage and re check in upon arrival at usa?
@LorenPechtel No, I'm not. For example, read the section entitled "Outbound: Air, Land and Sea" at dhs.gov/news/2012/09/11/… The fact that you don't see any such checks (other than occasional "random" checks, which normally aren't random!) doesn't mean that they don't exist.

The US absolutely DOES have outbound border controls. Whilst it's true they do not have specific outbound physical immigration checks, all passengers and all baggage is security screened, and all passenger are electronically checked using information provided by the airlines using APIS.

The page you have linked to is incorrect. Visa-on-Arrival costs US$30, whilst the recommend e-visa costs only US$20.

comment Travel Portable Battery
They exist - a work colleague of mine has one. It's extremely heavy, and from what I can make out he hardly carries it with him as a result. Personally I just have a second battery for my laptop.

comment Changing baggage final destination - hidden-city ticketing
@pnuts He also wants to get home to MEM afterwards, and that's not going to happen if the airline cancels the rest of his return ticket (which they will!)
