I would if in my other home, but not here.

A guitar?

I'm pretty sure there are a few in the house, but I don't think any are within 15 seconds.

A burger?

Nope. That'd be more like 15 minutes; there's a burger joint half a mile from here.

It's more of a brown pebble, but yes.

A potted plant over there has a couple grey-colored rocks.

A tree? (you don't have to "produce" it, like a bonsai, just to reach it)

Would just be able to reach one in 15 seconds, but it would involve violently opening a window, climbing head-first out, and clambering over a fence, in the dark twilight that comes an hour before dawn. I don't particularly want to go through that experience.

A painting?

There are several in the bathroom next door.

At least one is in easy reach in the cabinet across the room.

Stuff I could eat for dinner, yes. If you mean what I'm actually going to eat for dinner tonight, I can produce the ingredients, but I haven't cooked them yet. (I'll be making baked beans and spoon bread. Since they both go in the oven, that's more like an hour than 15 seconds.)

Hiking boots?

No, but I have shoes that I can, and will, go hiking in with no ill effects to my feet.

Colored paper?

Nope. They're in a box inside another box, and it took me 11 seconds to find the first box; no way I could've gotten it down from the shelf and open in 3 more seconds.

I can touch one, but not actually hold it individually because it's embedded in my desk, holding it together.

A paper encyclopedia?

An encyclopedia printed on paper, or an encyclopedia on paper?

Either way, no.

Many left hands are nearby, but could I actually "produce" one without them freaking out? :wink:

Well, I'm a tourist sometimes, but I'm home now, so that probably doesn't count.

I don't think there are any Reverse Polish Notation calculators here, and I couldn't find one on my computer (though, maybe the Internet, but that might still be >15 seconds).

Wellllll, instead of something that was actually made to be a mouse mat, I'm using a copy of Mother Goose with a picture of Mary and her little lamb on the cover; does that count?

Given that I have three very girly young girls living at my house at the moment, I'm sure I could find something if I were at home. At work, I doubt it.
