Q. How quickly can the average person put their hands on 14.4 kg of carbon?

A. Less than a second:

The average human is about 80kg in weight and the human body is 18% carbon so all you have to do to put your hands on 14.4 kg of carbon is to put them on your head.

(OK, a bit of sneaky way of getting that in but carbon is an ingredient of the human body.)
