Why are airline passengers asked to lift up window shades during takeoff and landing?
I suspect that it's highly airline and region specific. I don't recall having been asked to open the window shades in any of my (many) flights in the past few years.
What should you do if you're really broke in a country where tipping is customary?
I gave you +1 even though PBRs do not count as "decent" beer in my book. If I wanted water, I'd go to a water fountain and get it free. ;) I do think the analogy you presented -- in a country that didn't require tips, you wouldn't underpay -- was especially good.
