My 5 minute theory

I believe that the difference between a person who seems to know something/enough about a topic and one who is completely at loss is more often than not, just 5 minutes. For most of the average daily life topics, it will suffice just to have a small five minute overview to save you from a complete loss and embarassment. I have felt the same for banal topics to sometimes highly technical topics. I wonder if the feeling is shared by others!
