Ideas for Lingots

<h1>1: Time Refill (Like Heart Refill)</h1>

Gives 10 Seconds time on a practice session. Launched by clicking (like Heart Refill). Possibly would look like heart refill but green with timer symbol.

<h1>2: Timed Question Bonus (Extra Timed Questions)</h1>

Adds 5 extra questions for the next 3 timed question practice. Launched as soon as bought. Should look like a baby Duo Owl sitting in egg and holding a paper that shows the timed practice symbol with a plus next to it.

<h1>3: First Aid Kit (When you lose, it is used and gives you 3 hearts automatically, starting at next question)</h1>

Suggested by HH539, I think it should look like a white box with a red heart on it and saying "First Aid Kit" on the top. Any ideas? Post it below!

<h1>4: Extra Keyhole Shortcut Chances (Gives another chance to master a group of skills ex: have 3, but now 4)</h1>

Suggested by diagramchaser, Maybe would look like a key with a note that shows a keyhole.

<h1>5: Ice Box (Gives 3 Streak Freezes)</h1>

Suggested by brainiac711, should look like a cooler with the streak freeze symbol on it.

That should be given out as a prize if you can get 100% on the duolingo certificate thingy and complete your entire tree with everything gold. While you're at it, add in a 365 day streak. If you can get that then you get one free vacation. That'll inspire people to learn new languages. Should we start a kickstarter campain for funding?

I think there should be a sort of resurrection device which you can use once you've lost all hearts. It should cost a bit more than the heart potion, though.

An option to use some Lingots to slow down the timer on timed practice for a period of time would be great.

What freezing the diminishing strength of the lessons? Like, if you're going on vacation, you can freeze it so you pick up just where you left off. It takes a while to get it back up sometimes.

It's just keeping your hard-earned streak still if you don't have a chance on a given day.

Oh I know, but I like to always have all gold, so I have to keep up with it everyday.

The ability to retry the keyhole shortcuts - it should be really expensive though, like a hundred lingbots or something, so people don't just keep trying the shortcut until they get it.
