I could probably get to about a half dozen or so in 15 seconds. That is if no one in my office stopped me and asked why I was running around touching all of the computers.

Optical data storage disks?

Yup, a bunch of audio CDs or some old video game discs.

There's a lamp behind me. It took me a while to think of it though (and I assume that the thinking time is included in the 15 seconds).

An alcoholic beverage?

i have some wine up in the closet in the kitchen, but it would take more than 15 seconds to open it and pour.

I live in a highly populated area, at the intersection of two major highways, and there's a limited supply of food in the house, plus the closest thing we have to a weapon is either a knife or a t-ball bat. So unless I managed to make it out at the very beginning before traffic got too bad, there's nothing I could do. Plus it took me more than 15 seconds to think of this not-very-good plan. In other words, no.

I'm guessing it has something to do with deeply ingrained fears that are no longer rational in modern society.

A handwritten note reminding you of an upcoming appointment? (If you wrote it after reading this question, it doesn't count.)

I found a piece of gravel in my couch a couple of days ago and threw it somewhere around thataway :arrow: . Can't be bothered finding it in 15 seconds, though.

No, don't touch the stuff. That said, somewhere in the garage I think we have a few cans of one of those, gotten years ago when we wanted to have them for parties. I doubt the contents match the label any more.

an 8-track (tape cassette)?
