 systemd-analyze blame
 systemd-analyze critical-chain

might provide instructive info (if you're using systemd, that is). You
don't have to be root, either.

Removing the "quiet" parameter from your grubby line to witness the
traffic jam in real time might also be edifying (you can do this on the
fly, as it were, by using the arrow keys to select the appropriate menu
entry, then pressing 'e' for edit and removing the word 'quiet', which I
believe sits quietly somewhere near the end of the string).

it all — cash, booze, and a wife — he couldn’t be distracted from the great
emptiness that was always falling through him and never hit the ground.” – Denis Johnson
