You can jump to the 45 second mark if you like. Wait, how would you know "if you like"? You haven't done it yet. You can't know that you'd like to jump to 0:45 sec. until you've done it at least once. OK, so let's do it like this: Jump to the 45 second mark. Then watch it through from the beginning. Then, if you liked watching it from the 45 second mark, feel free to do it again.

Please don't write saying, "You wasted my time. I watched it all the way through from the beginning like you asked, but clearly I could have skipped the first 45 seconds." Well, yes. But you didn't know that until you tried it, did you? It's just like Brussels sprouts, you can't say you don't like them if you haven't tried them. Exactly the same thing.

Here try this; boil frozen Brussels sprouts per the directions, then drain them and put them in a skillet with a cup of minced onions and 3 or 4 slices of bacon cut into 1/2 inch or smaller squares. You probably want the onion translucent and the bacon starting to brown before you add the sprouts. Salt and pepper it like crazy. OK? Try that. See? You did like Brussels sprouts. (oh also, there might be a naked woman in the first 45 seconds of the video)
