Wut up UG?? I'm about to go to sleepy land but I know most of you are only just waking up :)

I received my two year VISA for the United States the other day & was wondering if you could all suggest to me some good academies & nice places to visit over the next 24 months?? Best from first hand experience?? I'm Australian & admittadly don't know much about the USA other than what I see on television LOL :)

By the way... don't forget to tune in to my second fight for Invicta Fighting Championships in just three weeks time on April 5th!! I'm fighting Austria's Jasminka 'Sphincter' Cive & I promise to make her impersonate a fainting goat. Follow me on Twitter for more shenanigans @RowdyBec :)

Thanks for all this, I wasn't too far off :) America is cheaper than Australia so it all adds up anyway!!

If you show up and grapple and do respectable, while making it known on your resume what your normal fighting weight is, you still have a lot to gain even if you don't get on the show. You could leave enough of an impression that when they open up a W125 or W115 division you could still end up on the short list when they try and decide who to sign.

15% is the old number (not a big deal though). It's actually ~18% now for decent service now. 20% or more for excellent service. There are legit perks to tipping a lot if you're a regular btw. For instance, if I go to my local IHOP and I want my pancakes changed to salad or broccoli, they'll do it happily because they know I eat fast and that I routinely tip 25% or more.Other common situations where you tip:-pizza/chinese/whatever delivery (15% is fine rounded up, unless they're really late; delivery people are in the same boat as waiters, as far as income; usually you do not tip for carry-out)-hair stylist / salon (18% or more)-taking a taxi (15% rounded up is fine)Slightly less common:-bellhop at a hotel ($1-2 a bag, depending on weight)-bars (I'm a little hazy on this but tipping the bartender $1 a drink is probably okay, or $2 for a really expensive drink; someone correct me if I'm wrong; if you keep a tab just tip like 20% at the end of the night or something)-Starbucks or other coffee-centric cafes: tipping is completely optional but it is proper to put a dollar in the tip jar if the barista is really cute.Rare but important:-curbside check-in at an airport (you probably won't even encounter this, since most airports don't do this; however, tip $1-2 a bag or $2-3 for a really fucking heavy bag; if you tip nothing, there is a slim but distinct possibility that your bags will be delivered to Alaska)In places where there are no waiters or waitresses, you don't tip (and often don't have the option)People here might argue about the specifics but that's a rough guide.

^^^^^ Honestly, as an American, I've always hated that practice. I usually try to be genuine, e.g. "I'm fucking peaches and cream, how are you?"

Americans will ask you how you are. Don't be too long winded with the answer, because they don't really care how you are... but asking saves them from just going "ummmmmm" after saying hello.So just say "fine". Three words at most.
