I expected there to be some in the fridge, but I failed to find them in the time limit.

"Pip" means "seed" in the context of apple pip. At the time I thought there were apples in the fridge; it might have taken more than fifteen seconds to extract the seed, but I'm not sure whether or not that was necessary. In any case, I didn't verify the existence of apples in the fridge, so there you go.

As for a large ball... there's one here somewhere, deflated. If I knew where it was, I could probably get to it in fifteen seconds. But it would probably take me half an hour to figure out where it was.

A pitchfork?

Depends what you mean. There are wire hangars in the closet, and an FM antenna attached to the stereo. But an official TV rabbit ears (or rooftop antenna)...no.

Any working device with an old-style serial D connector?

Yes. Bunches.

I don't think so. There's a microwave here but I suspect that doesn't count; and no old TVs.

Yes - pretty much all water bottles are reusable. Even reusable for holding water.

A nonreusable water bottle? (That is, a bottle intended for holding water, whether filled or not, that cannot reasonably be used for that purpose a second time)

Don't you mean "something made in your country"? It's much easier for me to grab something that reads "made in China" than "made in the Netherlands". :mrgreen:
But in either case, yes, without moving my butt.
