No, robots wouldn't even know what a tip was, and you'd not tip at McDonald's even staffed by humans.

In the US, tipping is usual (and expected) in so called full service restaurants; meaning you sit down directly and order at a table with the server. No tips are usual (but of course allowed and liked) in half-service restaurants, those are restaurants where you order yourself at a central desk, sit down, and your food is brought to your table by the ...

Products made from the common eastern gray kangaroo and red kangaroo are generally permitted to be imported into the US, though products from threatened and endangered kangaroo species are not. You do need to declare it to Customs. It would be helpful if the product includes documentation of what species of kangaroo it was made from, though if it was ...

The e-passport requirement applies only to travelers who seek entry under the Visa Waiver Program. Travelers who apply for (and are granted) a visa in advance do not need to have electronic passports. So you should be fine.

Using your cited vend-o-matic "restaurant", I would hazard a guess that the card swipe / authorization process is simply sale and does not offer a tipping option. Encouraging folks to "tip" a vending machine would likely not be viewed favorably by the buying public. Taking the automated restaurant further, to where robots are taking your order tableside, ...

The TSA explicitly allows people to travel without ID. The following is taken from https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification: Forgot Your ID? In the event you arrive at the airport without valid identification, because it is lost or at home, you may still be allowed to fly. The TSA officer may ask you to complete a form to ...

So if you get really sick then you might get banned from the US? No, it doesn't work that way. A past visa does not count in the current application. Refusal of entry or overstaying do but using or not using a past visa doesn't. First I got a multiple entry 10 year B1/B2 then I got a single entry visa and I was afraid to apply again because I thought it ...

Immigration into the US is always at the first US airport you land at, same as almost every country in the world. Think about it: The flight from New York to Los Angeles is domestic, mainly carrying domestic passengers who don't have to be immigration screened as they disembark in LA. There's be no secure way for authorities to pull the few international ...

I visited the flats today, and apparently, other than the wet, public, watered area a couple inches deep, most of the dry flats I found were privately owned. I don't know if this is true for all of the flats, but you would have to do some research on public and private salt flat areas. Hope this provides some background info for you. If it doesn't hope you ...
