It's certainly bigger than Earth.
And most importantly, do they name everything super (something)?
Of course not. To them, their planet is normal Earth, and they call our planet sub-Earth. Or dwarf Earth.
I don't know about you, but after eight or more hours on a plane I'd like to get at least eight hours of sleep and a shower before I board another plane.
I agree it's not a huge benefit though.
Can anyone say personal responsibilty?
No - not after the amount I've had to drink!

Is there a good reason I should trust the authors of "WhatsApp"? And even if I did trust them, is there any measure of assurance that they couldn't be compelled to give up my data?
I think that there is a good deal of assurance. WhatsApp use the Signal Protocol which is open source and provides end-to-end encryption so that they never see your messages. They are using a closed-source version of this protocol, so you could worry that they have some modifications or back-doors. However because people have used third-party clients (which is against the terms and conditions) this seems unlikely, but still possible.
If you are really paranoid use the open-source Signal encryption software, verify the code, and compile yourself. You could even run your own server (the code to this is also open source), but having verified that the client gives end-to-end encryption this is not necessary.
