Things to Do With a Five Minute Window

Have five minutes to spare? Why not do, or not, some of these?

The Top Ten

1 See how many times you can sing your country's national anthem

I'd never do this for one reason: the British National Anthem should be sung at pace and with meaning and gusto. - Britgirl

The British National Anthem is simply 44 seconds long, so one can do this almost seven times in five minutes. The Greek national anthem, the longest in existance, now that's harder. You'd need a pretty powerful voice to put 158 verses into 5 minutes. - PositronWildhawk

2 Make a top ten list

I made this while I waited for my tea to brew - Britgirl

3 Stare at a picture of Justin Bieber without losing your temper

Impossible to do. I'd last 2.7 seconds before this happened! - Britgirl

4 Do impressions

Make fun of someone. It's good! - Britgirl

"Ni will shay to the houshe, azh I have shaid to thozhe who have joined the government: I have nothing to offah but blood, toil, tearzh, and shweat! " Rather exaggerated, but I don't think Mr. Churchill would mind. In fact, he would probably take it as a compliment. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. - PetSounds

5 Nothing

Those five minutes will seem like five years! Bad idea. - Britgirl

6 Write a first draft of a full length novel

I've tried. I managed to write paragraphs - badly. - Britgirl

7 Sing like no one is listening

Go on. Let it all go. You know you want to. , - Britgirl

This is for surely what I do! - Curti2594

8 Watch 'stuff' on the internet

Of course the snuff -sorry - the STUFF you watch on it is entirely up to you... - Britgirl

9 Tell your secrets to your soft toys

Do this all the time. They never listen. - Britgirl
