A challenge for engineers?

Can anyone identify this screw/bolt head and tell me what type of tool I need to remove it? The screw head has 5 radiating flanges/splines, with a raised central hub. It does not appear to be a (security) Torx head. Photos: bolt closup and bolt in situ. The bolt/screw in question is located in a Braun coffee grinder (model KMM30, 3045). The grinder was made in Mexico and sold in the USA.

Does anyone know the title of this book? The setting is a metal-poor prison planet where the people have segmented into vaguely feudal societies that trade with their guards in orbit for iron. The protagonist's society has developed really fast regeneration, with the side effect that some of them start growing extraneous body parts which are harvested and sold up to orbit. Another society has learned to experience time at any speed, and yet a third has no particular super-powers but is the wealthiest of them all because they've got fantastic scholars whose theorems and designs are sold for iron. I read this novel in a school library seven years ago, as a hardcover with a picture of a guy lifting himself out of a hole or well in the ground. [more inside]

Identify this songbird

I heard a bird outside my window yesterday. I'm in Western New York State. The only way to describe its song is a slow 'yoo-hoo...' performed as a whistle. Didn't see the bird. Heard it at about 10AM local time. I've been pouring over whatbird.com, but their categories of calls don't seem to fit what I heard. I'm happy to provide more information if I can. Yesterday's weather was a completely clear sky, with high temps in the mid 50's F. [more inside]

Cadillac. [more inside]

What were these bugs that we called "bloodsuckers"?

There is this insect/arachnid I remember from my childhood in Las Vegas. It had a body about the size of a raisin, only it was quite flat. They were red with black spots (larger than ladybugs, but flatter), and the kids in the neighborhood called them "bloodsuckers" for some reason. (I have no idea if they bit or not.) I don't remember them flying, but I could be wrong about that. What insects were they? Scientific name or common name is fine, anything I can use to find out more info.

Vintage Cognac, or Old Bottle of Booze?

Do you know vintage cognac? My Father-in-law was handed down a bottle of, assumably, nice cognac. It was given to his father as a gift from his company in the 1930s. It's been sitting in the basket it was packaged in for years and years and we'd really like to have more information about it. It's a bottle of "Cognac Napoleon, Grande Fine Champagne, Reserve". Pictures of the front label, the mark on the bottle's neck, and the back label. [more inside]

What is this strange helicopter/fan/pinwheel-like fruit?

A friend of mine made this mobile for my soon-to-be-born baby's nursery from found objects on hiking trips in several states. One of the dangly(sp?) things is this weird pinwheel shaped fruit. Its about 5" across and as you can see the pods dehisced along the one edge--no seeds were found in the fruit. He thinks he found it either in California or Nevada (or the desert SW). [more inside]
