comment Button for pedestrian traffic lights in Germany
Might it also depend on the time of day/week and the location of the crossing? In the US, a lot of lights will just assume there's pedestrians during business hours but then go into needs-to-be-pushed mode at night, and it can be hit-or-miss throughout the city. Some crosswalks also only activate blind accessibility noises if the button is pushed.

yep, I've lived in Seattle on and off since 2005 and have never once seen anyone use Canadian currency here.

comment Tipping for takeout food in the USA
@thinlyveiledquestionmark Good point, I'll rewrite it as appropriate. (I still think it's worth mention as an ancillary thing though.)

Derek Miller of Veritasium fame took the challenge and lasted for an hour with no problem, and felt that he could have gone on much longer, although there's a few things he did that might have affected that outcome.

comment Are bluetooth headphones allowed on flights in the US, particularly on United Airlines?
+1 because it's the only CORRECT one here. Just because you can get away with something doesn't mean it's actually allowed, regardless of how silly the rule that bans them is.

Just because you haven't been asked to stop using them doesn't mean they're actually allowed. Flight attendants shouldn't have to be able to tell the difference between wireless headphones and headphones with a built-in MP3 player, for example.
