Who are some good nonfiction writers covering archery? I've read Zen in the Art of Archery and the Reeves Wiedeman piece in Harper's. What else is out there? I'm looking less for Lanny Bassham and more for John McPhee.
Yoko Ono wrote Voice Piece for Soprano in 1961. I've read Grapefruit and am familiar with her instruction pieces. However, I've been trying to find out more specific info about this piece. Most of my search results refer to the more recent MOMA exhibition, but I'm looking for information about her writing it or performing it before then, as well as anything she may have said about it. I am not looking for analysis of it, just history.

When I was in middle school (early 2000s) I found these neat cardboard packets of oracle/tarot-esque cards that had maybe 5-7 cards per packet along with a beautiful paper fortune teller/cootie catcher in the same art style. For the sake of scratching a mind itch, I'd love to find a photo or two of these cards. Any takers want to help me search? [more inside]
AskMe has proven good at identifying random things in the past - can you help me track down this half-remembered cartoon I saw?

It is often stated - usually for the purpose of saying that we don't need more women in STEM careers - that the most reliable difference between men and women is that "men are more interested in things and women are more interested in people." Cordelia Fine and Virginia Valian have criticized this conclusion based on the limitations of the surveys used to determine it. I'm having trouble accessing the surveys, as they all seem to be products behind paywalls. Can anyone who does have access expand on the accuracy and relevance of their criticisms? [more inside]

Hi, AskMe. :) This is kind of related to my previous ask, in that I'm hoping to use it to help with Eve online, but it also applies more broadly. What solutions exist for OCRing and interacting with a computer screen in real-time? [more inside]

Does anyone in the US own a Sony Xperia 10 Plus cell phone? It has a 21:9 ratio screen and I've read that some apps are able to maximize to this size and others can't, and I'm trying to find out if the library reading app Libby does or does not. Bonus points for an image!

I need to line up resources for some people to prep for, and take, Exam 70-348. Does anyone have experience with this one? What online resources should I direct us to for study and prep? There seems to be a LOT of noise out there if you google the exam number, but not a lot of analysis or information about which of these organizations are worth paying. (There are a few prior questions here about MCP stuff generally, but nothing recent.)

Mrs. Spitbull and I have made an offer on a house in the Berkshires (Western Massachusetts). Now we need a home inspector and a lawyer for the title search and closing.

Memail is active if you prefer not to respond in thread. Thank you! [more inside]
