OK. I'll bite. What "six minutes of tests" do you queue up? What do you record?

And how do you broach the subject with the owner? Something like...

"Uh, I think I know why all those heads are popping up..." OR 
"This is a nice network you have here. It'd be a shame if something happened to it..." OR
"I know I look like [don't look like] a pointy-headed geek, but there's this thing called bufferbloat..." OR 
"Do you ever get complaints that your wifi is really slow?"
