comment A way to store money in something like a credit card without my name on it?
Traveller's cheques are essentially anonymous, so may meet your requirement. However, they may not be as widely accepted as they once were.

comment A way to store money in something like a credit card without my name on it?
Could you explain a bit more about the problem you're trying to solve? I can understand not wanting to carry too much cash around, but what's wrong with a debit/credit card, and/or getting cash from a machine? Wherever your money came from, can't you just move it to your bank account - or is your concern that, for example, it may breach local tax rules relating to gifts/inheritance?

comment Kings Cross Station to Heathrow
...and taking the Tube means that you don't have to change trains anywhere (assuming you get on the right train at Kings Cross), which is useful if you have a lot of luggage.

This seems to have spawned two chats; one is here, and the other is here.

@rogermue: D'oh! Just realised that. :-) Let's try again: Q:"Was it an accident?"; A:"We don't think so."; Q:"Then what did happen?".

And one more example is here. I have some less-relevant comments, which I've made over on the chat page.

@rogermue:"When you ask about the subject you use who/what + verb form (no use of do/does/did)." That's true in normal usage - but it's not true if you're using "to do" as a way of emphasising what you're saying. For example, at the end of this conversation: Q: "Do you love Juliet?"; A: "No"; Q: "Then who do you love?". See also here, here, here, here; + here

@rogermue: I'm having difficulty understanding your comment. Could you rephrase it?
