I've got ten of them right here, and probably enough time to dump out the contents of another one or two.

Yes, loads. Too many to count. The most unusual of which has to be a little caganer that my older sister got me from Barcelona a few years ago.

If a bucket is considered to be a very large jug, then yes. Otherwise no.

Yep. Two analog chess clocks, and two analog ordinary clocks on walls (one of which is currently not working). Also I think there's an analog alarm clock somewhere, but not sure I could find it in 15 seconds.

A fluorescent light?

Yes, there is a compact fluorescent lightbulb on my bookshelf. Pretty sure there's another one in the lamp in this room, and another one in the lamp in the next room over, but I'm too lazy to check.

Well, yes and no. Yes there's a bag of mixed nuts my wife puts in her nutribullet smoothie every morning not 10 feet away. No I couldn't actually produce them as the nut oil would send me into anaphylactic shock.

Recycling?

I knew where I could find one but it took more than 15 seconds to grab the book and find the page. "ù", in "Où est Madame Maxime?" in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. For reference, it's page 111 of the 17th Bloomsbury hardcover edition.

About fifteen years ago my sister made a replica wooden Nimbus 2000. Sadly, I have no idea where it is now. So, no.

I thought I had one, but since I can't find it, I must have left it at my parents' house. I can open up the solitaire app on my phone though.

An app that wasn't on your phone when you read this question? (In other words, within 15 seconds, can you open the app store on your phone, find and download a new app, and open that app?)

No, sometimes just displaying the keyboard after a textbox has been selected takes longer, because my phone has tremendous trouble with its own keyboard for some reason.

A phone with more than four physical keys (touch sensitive areas don't count)?

A reel-to-reel, a compact cassette deck, a receiver (that one has digital parts too though) and a turntable (if that counts). Three radios, two walkmans and another cassette recorder is at my parents' place though.

A radio capable of receiving long wave transmissions?

No. It took me that long to get to the basement. It would have taken me longer to find the actual radio involved. If it's still there.

Sadly not.

There are about fifteen Acorn computers in my other house (one in use, the rest in storage in the loft) that my dad bought from a school about twenty years ago. But no old computers here.

A compter that has Windows 8 installed on it?
