Book identification: old study skills book

Can anyone identify this 25-year-old book? It's a book on study skills (reading, note-taking, time management, etc.) for college students, published before 1985. There's one particular line. In the section on time management, the authors note (paraphrasing): This may seem like overkill now, but if you become (say) a lawyer, you'll need to manage your time far more intensively. Does anyone remember reading this? [more inside]

"I believe I can flyyyyyy, I believe I can touch the sky," without a kid who looks just like me having identification. True?

Do very young children (she's 20 months) need--as in absolutely required, not simply 'discretionary,' 'recommended,' or 'helpful'--any sort of identification in order to board a domestic U.S. flight and fly in a parent's lap? [more inside]

Interactive fiction game title...

I'm trying to remember the name of a piece of Interactive Fiction (IF) I once played, but remember almost nothing about. You start the game, sleeping next to your lover--and you can decide the gender of both your character and the lover--in what is essentially a hunting lodge. Your character can do something like shift into other times or other identities--I can't quite remember. I recall that it is supposed to be very long by normal IF standards. Any help?

Can anyone identify this gold ring with an odd design?

This ring turned up at my deceased grandmother's house and no one recognized it. General consensus was that it looked like a man's ring from the 1970s. The band/base appears to be gold and the design appears to be rose gold. Can anyone recognize the design or shed any light on this? Pics: 1 2 3

Help me identify this recent indie film set in Baltimore

Spider Identification

I recently ran across this little lady on my garden hose in my backyard in Milwaukee, WI. She moved very quickly when she wanted to, but mostly just tried to stay out of the sun. I snapped a couple pictures. She had a small white spot on top of her abdomen.

Wasp or hornet home?

An attacking cardinal has drawn my attention to this wasp's nest outside my window. Is it an unusual shape? I can't remember ever seeing a "starter" nest with this sort of tubular entranceway. Maybe I just haven't been very observant. The examples I've found on the internet say that it's the distinctive shape of the Median wasp's nest but that's supposedly a European species and I'm in Toronto. It's about 3" from top to bottom. I haven't seen anything fly in or out of it yet. What'sthatbug is on holiday. The sooner I can stop wondering about this, the sooner I can get back to work.

Can anyone identify this bird with its chick and does anyone know the breed of this guinea pig? Both were photographed in the UK, but the bird was at a reserve that has birds from all over the world. I believe the guinea pig is a recognised UK breed.

Identify this strange clamp thing.

Identify this strange clamp thing. Here. It's black aluminum. It's pretty small. Just fits over my pinky finger. The upper left part there is held on with a screw. You can make out the rounded head of the screw. So by loosening and tightening the screw, the 'jaws' could grab something.
