comment What's the highest price a country charges citizens of another country for tourist visa?
Oh yes I suppose. But "health insurance" is not required to enter the USA, only a "nice to have".

comment How best to prevent data loss while travelling?
Agreed 100%. It is not feisable to rely on local internet cafés or wifi. People seem to be hung up on "Will there be a FTP Client?" when the real problem is that the whole town is on dialup. Uploading is not possible.

comment Where can I buy a “roaming” or “international” SIM card — one with attached phone numbers in multiple countries?
Sounds like something of limited benefit. Having roaming and/or 2 different sim cards would solve just about all your travel needs?

comment Is there any United States slang I should avoid in the UK or Ireland?
Yes all "cider" in the UK & Ireland is as alcoholic as beer. I always thought it strange to see Ned Flanders enthusiastically talking about cider on the Simpsons.

The US "Jelly" = UK "Jam" thing took me ages. I wonder what monstrosity a (US) "peanut butter and jelly sandwich" was until I realised it was uk "jam", not uk "jelly"

Imagine if there was a drink called "Twin Towers" (there isn't AFAIK). Should you ask for that in New York? That's like asking for an "Irish Car Bomb" here (the police in Ireland find about 20 bombs per year in Ireland)
