A term coined by Wadsworth on Reddit.com.

The Wadsworth Constant is simply either the removal of the first 30% of selected content or the singular usage of only the first 30% of selected content.
Context: "A place formerly used to find out about slang, and now a place that teens with no life use as a burn book to whine about celebrities, their friends, etc., let out their sexual frustrations, show off their racist/sexist/homophobic/anti-(insert religion here) opinions, troll, and babble about things they know nothing about."

Wadsworth Constant Applied: "book to whine about celebrities, their friends, etc., let out their sexual frustrations, show off their racist/sexist/homophobic/anti-(insert religion here) opinions, troll, and babble about things they know nothing about."

The Wadsworth Constant is the fundamental idea that the true meaning of a video, conversation, or comment approaches importance after approximately 30% of it has been skipped over.
The above definition, for instance, has 180 characters. After applying the Wadsworth Constant, we skip over 52 characters (29%). The definition now reads,
"the true meaning of a video, conversation, or comment approaches importance after approximately 30% of it has been skipped over."

The Wadsworth Constant states that the first 30% of any YouTube video can be skipped as it is irrelevant.
Go to YouTube - pick any video and skip to 30%. Rewatch the whole video and see if the bit you missed at the beginning adds anything. If not the Wadsworth Constant is in action.

The Wadsworth constant, first postulated by Redditor Wadsworth, states that one can skip the first thirty percent of most videos while still maintaining the integrity of the content.

The constant itself is indicated by the lower case Greek letter Xi (ξ).
By applying the Wadsworth Constant to the above text, we find that it is shortened to a much more readable version.

"One can skip the first thirty percent of most videos while still maintaining the integrity of the content."

Brian, I applied the Wadsworth Constant to that porn video you gave me and thankfully skipped all the dick sucking.

This is a theory by Reddit user Wadsworth stating that the first 30% of content is either irrelevant or not important. The remaining 70% should be perfectly able to provide with as much information as 100%.

This is originally intended for videos, in particular YouTube videos, but the principle should work with many different types of content.

This is simply thought as "skipping the intro".
The first paragraph of this article is 206 characters long with spaces. Using the Wadsworth Constant and removing the first 30% (62 char.) of the text, we end up with the following:

st 30% of content is either irrelevant or not important. The remaining 70% should be perfectly able to provide with as much information as 100%.

If you were looking for a definition for the Wadsworth Constant, this sentence would have been enough for you to understand.
