comment Building credit rating in the US
I tried getting a US Amex card when I moved there from Australia. I had an Australian Amex card. They said there was no way they could issue me with a US card. Never held an Amex card since, and never will again.

comment Dual Citizenship between US and England
I have three passports, including a US passport. During the process of becoming a US citizen, two USCIS officers asserted that no US citizen was allowed to hold dual citizenship. I mumbled politely and ignored them. If Michelle Bachmann (former GOP presidential hopeful) can have Swiss citizenship... :-). As others have said, dual citizenship is upheld by SCOTUS.

comment How much lines of code does a programmer write per day?
The best (master branch) commit I ever saw deleted about 2500 lines of code net. The replacement code was more functional, extensible, and readable. Go figure.

comment Money transfer from Paypal to my blocked VISA card? Will I get the money?
Yes, I always phone the bank three times with the same question when it's non-standard. And make sure I speak to a different person each time.I hope it's not 50%, but the wrong answer probability is very high.
