Yep, got a box of paracetamol/caffeine right here.

Something with an internal pressure of over 5 bar?

Took me 15 seconds just to remember what 5 bar translated to! But still no.

A €0,50 copy of Mere Christianity I found at a flea market a few years ago and still haven't got around to reading...

A couple of dozen pallets at at least 1000 copies each of a paper manufacturer's product catalogs, annual reports and material demonstration books. It would take more than 15 seconds to extract individual copies though.

Something lozenge-shaped?

Three within arm's reach from where I'm sitting, or four if you're hip with onkyo and count "no-input mixer" as an instrument.

Something sort of green and sort of alive. I have a tiny pot of what should be daisies soon, though they haven't sprouted out of the soil yet.

Easterr (minus final r -- madness...) candy of some kind?

Yes - I timed it. Candy accessible in 14 seconds. It's a solid chocolate, fully 3d, sleeping Welsh dragon.

I'm going to guess no, since I don't feel like actually timing how long it would take me to run downstairs to the kitchen.

Yes, I have $20 worth of quarters right here (because they never updated the website when they switched the laundry machines from coin-operated to credit card).

Nope - I can get downstairs to the kitchen within 15 seconds, but there isn't enough time to get the right cupboard open.

By the definition I assume is being used, no. If it means something that a grown-up has fun tinkering with, loads of them.
