I could, but won't. There are women who work here who have them, but they are likely to be attached to their nails.

No. According to Grease, it takes fifteen minutes, not fifteen seconds.

The access-granting-item is right here, but it would take more than fifteen seconds to actually get to the place it grants access to.

Nope. Those never made much sense anyway. Why convert an electrical signal to audio only to use a phone to convert it back into an electrical signal?

I have all of my old course books right in front of me. I don't know if they would count as "very specific", but I have an introductory book in Model Theory and a thick survey-ish book about the current body of knowledge of Homotopy Type Theory anno 2013. I'd say those are pretty broad, but you be the judge.

If my ham radio plates count, then yes. Alas, they are not on my car, as there was an interruption in registration (long story) and the bureaucracy for getting them properly reassigned is... well... bureaucratic.

That depends. Does a bronze plate that resonates nicely, like a bell count? How about a picture of a Bell helicopter? I also have a coffee cup that's bell-shaped.

I don't think that exists. The opening at the top of bottles is universally round as far as I can find. Some have square caps, but the cap fitting itself is still round. The closest thing I know of is a snapware container, but that shouldn't count.

We have a dish rack in the kitchen that I absolutely despise because the only things you can safely place on it are plates less than 2 centimeters thick overall. Everything else requires an art halfway between building a house of cards and stone balancing.
