Q: Thirteen Minesweeper mines that make seven 5s

Dmitry KamenetskyCan you place thirteen mines on a Minesweeper grid such that they create seven 5s? The size of the grid can be arbitrary. The mines may create numbers other than 5s, but those are irrelevant. A similar question about 4s is here: Twelve Minesweeper mines that make twelve 4s Good luck!

Q: Can multiple wall timers turn lights on or off when required?

waferthinImagine we have some simple mechanical 24 hour wall timers like this: https://cdn.aws.toolstation.com/images/141020-UK/800/65719.jpg There’s one restriction though, they’re badly designed so each one can only turn on once and turn off once in a 24 hour period (but you can set the times of each)...

Shhh, don't mention her in front of Deus.
 
XD @Deusovi
 
I hear it wasn't a great breakup. A rushed ending. Nothing really leading up to it, just out of nowhere.
 
Fun fact: @Deus ovi means "Oh God" in Portuguese @Rand
 
And if you then reverse it in English it is "Dog ho!" @Rubio
 
@OmegaKrypton It also means the God of Sheep, I think.

rly?
 
Hey lets bully Deusovi with a sheep puzzle
 
Sep 10 '16 at 21:30, by Gareth McCaughan
@Rand, (1) surely Deusovi is pronounced exactly as you say and is Latin for "god of sheep"; (2) 2000/7 ~= 285 so 1000-2000/7 ~= 715; what am I missing?
 
ooh
@Adam not bully, it's playful banter...
 
(well yeah)
 
But apparently Rubio is also a sheep:
May 24 '17 at 9:27, by Rand al'Thor
@Rubio You're a sheep? I thought you were a dog or something.
HELP US! WE'RE BEING RULED BY SHEEP!
 
11:12 AM
Wait... Rubio = Deusovi or Deusovi rules Rubio?
...but dogs herd sheep on farms?!?!?!!?!
IT'S A CONSPIRACY

ANNOUNCEMENT: FOUND @RUBIO 'S SOCK!
 
I don't see the connection
 
@OmegaKrypton good, he's been walking around barefoot. Now if you could find the other three, he's set.
 
he'd only be quieter when walking...

I think we found @Rubio's sock.
So - is that two of my socks found or does this only count as one?
 
IT'S ACTUALLY THE SAME SOCK!!!
 
He must've chewed the other ones up. Oh, Rubio...

Q: Circle divided with lines between blue dots

CuriousSuperheroWhat is the solution for this IQ test question?

 
3:09 PM
@Randal'Thor it does not mean that (both because that is not the intended interpretation, and because it wouldn't work grammatically)
 
The "god of sheep" remark wasn't terribly serious. I think "ovi" would be ablative not genitive.
 
(though i cannot confirm or deny any sort of sheep-related conspiracy among the moderators)
 
a sheepish confession
