How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door youre on.
The countries that are yet to occupy a great power status simply cant wait any longer and want to occupy that power seat as soon as possible.
On the other hand the countries that are currently great powers, are simply not ready to vacate their seats and want to put on as long as possible.
Looks like the door will be broke open leaving the great powers exposed, resulting in an ugly battle as usual.
Hope Planet Earth is not a comedy show for some aliens out there ;)
