jquery limit list

Using jQuery to limit the number of list elements

I have a list element containing a number of between 20-30 events. I only want to show 5 of those, and have a «More» link I can click to watch the the next five. It doesn’t matter if the five next events are appended.

Can’t find a jQuery script that actually does this, or am I just blind? I don’t want to use carousel plugins or anything like that.
