comment If you go to the pool and find all the sunbeds have towels on and you have nowhere to sit, what do you do?
I have actually seen this done the night before at an almost deserted hotel. Also, in the UK at least, there is a very established joke that Germans do this.

comment Cheapest way to go from San Francisco to Los Angeles?
"The other option is to catch the train. Amtrak has routes between these cities": No train to Las Vegas Nevada, that's an Amtrak "Thruway" bus, which can only be used to extend a train ticket. Although it looks like you can get a train as far as Barstow. There is a train to Las Vegas New Mexico though...

comment Do any rental car companies provide pickup at the Amtrak Union Station in LA?
Note that if you did need to get public transport from Union Station to LAX, the FlyAway bus would be more practical than the subway. It's direct, whereas you'd need to get 3 different Metro trains, and even then a shuttle bus to LAX itelf. Mind you, $75 seems a little high for a taxi.

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Also, continuing the gestural tangent, American-style cutlery handling may make people think you don't have full use of your left hand...

@NateEldredge: UK/Euro victory/peace sign will also be palm forward, despite the famous photo of Churchill doing it the US way.

A bit more detail on Tower 42's bar, moved it before the restaurant because it's much higher!

comment Is it fair to buy a return ticket I know I will never use just because it's cheaper?
"You're not supposed to do this, of course, but unless you make a habit of it the airlines will not care" - probably not a good idea if you want to keep frequent flyer miles with that airline though?
