comment Will users know to click the top item in navigation menu?
I agree with this. When I saw the horizontal arrow I thought it was a link to an external site. You don't see it much these days, but it was almost convention a few years back.

I don't think it does anymore. At least, it doesn't for me.

comment Why do traffic lights have three separate light bulbs instead of having one?
Of course, Americans make up less than 5% of the world's population, so American laws and regulations are rather irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

You only capitalise proper nouns.

comment Why AMBULANCE is written as ECNALUBMA on emergency vehicles?
@VitalyMijiritsky This photograph is an example: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/96/Heidemarie_Stefanyshyn-Piper‌​_in_white_space_suit.jpg. All of the labels and digits on the dials are written in reverse. The astronaut uses a mirror on their wrist to see read the labels.

I read somewhere that astronauts have the labels on their space suits written backwards, because they have to use a mirror to read them.

comment Would it be risky to gamify school?
I don't agree with "No job offers gamification to its employees". Pretty much every job employs gamification, even if they don't know it. Whether that be with dollar incentive (bonuses) or competitions between stores in a retail environment. In a way, capitalism is nothing more than the gamification of society.

comment How can I ensure users understand how to answer SMS correctly?
You're message reads as if is from a human. Simple prepending the words 'AUTO REMINDER' might go someway to telling people it is a machine they are talking to.

comment Why do address forms ask for the US state?
Although I don't live in the US, I believe that state is required to apply the correct level of sales tax(?) Obviously, if a ZIP code straddles two states, you couldn't determine the correct tax.

comment What are the standard estimating techniques for UX efforts?
What are you interesting in estimated? I'm not familiar with the terminology of estimating a 'project' -- do you mean to regress potential profit or are you looking to construct a estimate of "usability score"?

comment Why is the Windows taskbar default at the bottom?
If the aim was to keep it far away from the application toolbar, why wasn't the taskbar at the top of the screen and the application toolbar at the bottom of the window?

comment Why isn't the A4 sized paper preferred over the letter size in the US?
Many countries had much invested in imperial units, but most of the world has switched to metric with no ill-effect. There are plenty of benefits to using the metric system over the imperial one -- if not only to be able to communicate with the rest of the world in sensible units. There's nothing more frustrating than viewing a recipe online with everything being measured in 'cups', or working out whether a gallon is a British-gallon or a US-gallon.
