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 Meeting someone at the airport gate in the US?
In the US, I've had a gate pass to drop off unaccompanied minors, but I couldn't get one to pick them up. We had to send in a copy of our driving licences a few days beforehand.

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.)

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.
