No, and probably with good reason. The last time I used a laminating machine, the sleeve surrounding the paper got sucked in a wrapped around one of the rollers. Took us a while to get it out again.

Can you find a musical instrument?

EDIT: For answer, yes. I'm using it right now.

Well, it may be a bit of a stretch, but I have a motherboard from 1989. It's green and "contains" lots of components some of which are inside.
It's got an old Intel i486 SX on it and hasn't been used for quite some time.

Ergh, I'd have to run down to the lobby, which I could theoretically do within 15 seconds if I didn't value my life. I'd also have no time to change into publicly-acceptable clothing first, which would be at least an additional 5 seconds (I'm wearing ridiculous old-n-comfy crap, a habit that's too easy to get into when you live alone). So, I guess it's a no.

An 8-track cassette?

Can you find a vivid?

A... vivid *what*?

*wiki visit*

As in a) "adult media produced by Vivid", or as in b) "something that looks vivid"?

a) No. I might find something in a neighbour's apartment, but it would take me longer than 15 seconds to get into each one. Even if I knocked.
b) Yes. The shirt I wore today.


ahem...
