I think that exchange pretty much sums up my attitude to pretty much any video content on the internet. When I’m browsing the net at home, I have music playing pretty much all the time and I really just do not want to stop it unless it feels like it will actually be worth engaging my entire brain to watch whatever this is.
This is also why I hate tools that only come with video tutorials instead of text manuals. I just wanna learn what @#$% keys do what so I can fool around with it, I do not need synchronized sound and video to tell me that.
