Related to watching movies on Youtube, the Wadsworth Constant is applied by skipping the initial 30% of a movie to jump directly to pertinent information related to the movie's title/subject. This is to avoid any unnecessary preambles or filler content that would normally result in the watcher's time being wasted.

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."

When watching online videos, the Wadsworth Constant states the first 30% of the video will not be pertinent or necessary. The viewer will be able to watch the second 70% without any loss.

This theory holds true to most videos and statements, assuming everything is rounded to the most logical point.
Wadsworth Constant: the intro is bullshit, skip to there, you'll get it.

As described on reddit.com by user Wadsworth. The theory is that for every video on youtube you can skip the first 30% without having a negative effect of the content. This has since been extrapolated to written content as well.
"There are 55 characters including spaces in this sentence.
According to the Wadsworth Constant we should remove the first 16.5 characters, let's give it a go.
ld be known as the Wadsworth Constant.
It is also known in the Wadsworth Constant that we should round to the nearest logical point. We are left with:
Be known as the Wadsworth Constant."

The theory that the first 3rd of any youtube video is superfluous and can be skipped.
"Why are the beginning of youtube videos so goddamn boring? Don't people know how to edit video?"

"Yeah, it's the Wadsworth Constant"
