Actually, yes. It's 30 years old, black and white (from the days before the world had colours) and belonged to my wife (2nd hand) when she was a student.

If by that you mean a GPS that always sends me the long way (regardless of settings) or takes me through certain intersections if I go within a couple miles of them, then yes.

Nope.

A glass bottle containing exactly two Mentos (it may have anything else in it, except for additional Mentos)?

It is important to note that everything I have said so far is something that I can, in fact, produce in 15 seconds or less.
