I'm a quantitative psychologist, in a non-profit research institute. (Google my name if you care, I just don't want this to appear when people Google its name.)

Opinions and errors stated here are mine, not my employer's.

I've written (with others) a couple of books, including "Applying regression and correlation" and "Discoving statistics using R."

comment What kind of ID does the US accept when visiting bars or drinking age events?
It's because the driver's licence has your date of birth and photo on it. Any other ID that has those would work. In some states in the US, you can get a driver's licence which doesn't give you permission to drive, because you need a driver's licence for other reasons, such as getting into bars. You could use your passport, but it's a bad idea to carry that around.

comment Are airlines legally obligated to feed passengers without charging?
@MarkChapman - yes, and don't forget his "blowjobs for people in first class" comment. Which shows how seriously he takes himself. (He's also said he's underpaid, relative to other airline bosses. But no one else would hire him, so there's nothing he can do.)

Had you travelled to the US in the past with your niece?

comment Are theme parks crowded on Thanksgiving day?
:) I had season passes to Disneyland a couple of years ago - I never managed to go in a quiet time.

comment I have discovered that the hotel room toilet is blocked, but too late :/
Phone the front desk, tell them that your toilet is not working. Then go out somewhere. Eat in the restaurant, sit in the bar, go for a walk. Come back and it will be fixed.

comment Is a European Union (Slovakia) driver's licence valid in the US?
I think insurance might be the bigger issue. If you're insured, I think you're OK.

comment Can a non-US citizen living in the US on a J1 visa travel to Cuba?
If you ever want to convert to a green card, it might not help your cause when they see a Cuba stamp in your passport. (Although I travelled to Cuba when I was living in Britain, and got a green card without problem.)

comment Which brand of backpack should I carry so as to not stick out in Europe?
London. London, England? Always makes me laugh (as a British person living in the US).
