Can you produce [X] in less than 15 seconds?

Postby MHD » Sun May 31, 2009 12:18 am UTC

This is a game of immediate availability.

You aske the next poster to find an item (or other) in less than 15 seconds and they tell you if it was possible.

EG:
Poster 1: Can you produce a table spoon in less than 15 secs?
Poster 2: Yes

I'll start:
Can you find a binocular/spyglass in less than 15 secs?

13 seconds for a Google search to get me to the map closeup, so yes. (Physically, only if I had light-speed transport and an accurate, pre-programmed guidance system.)
