Is it normal for the elevators to free fall and stop all the time here? I don't feel like riding in these things too much if at all possible or absolutely necessary. Gal at the local store said she walks up and down stairs and doesn't use them.

Alas, some fool (not me, of course) took my UK passport for a ride in the washing machine. Not once, but twice. Photo page has not been damaged, and nor have the visas. The passport pages themselves look a bit sad, and some of the stamps have been washed out. How bad is it? Is it still usable or do I need to get it replaced? If so, what is the procedure and how long does it take?

The IRS passed a law called FACTA which requires foreign banks to notify them of all accounts with a balance over $50,000 held by US citizens or residents. The account holder has to authorize this by filling out a W9 form. Since my balance is well below $50,000, I am not legally equired to fill out the W9 form. However, my bank, Vietcombank, requires all US customers to fill out a W9 form, regardless of their account balance. I don't want to provide the US govenment with information that I am not legally required to give them, so I need to find another bank that will not require me to fill out the W9 form. Does anyone know of any such banks?
