      First off; You sir are brilliant : I'm not so smart. I'm old and want to keep on learning. But, Dammed if I can under stand Why this young generation of smart men and women use the words.; "GO-AHEAD". Your parents and teachers is dropping the ball and nobody is speaking up. I am so dumb-founded by this, "GO-AHEAD". It's very much like some use the word "this"; over and over. When explaining something. I say KISS! Keep it simple. Stop adding distracting words.

      I had to stop watching your video. Just got to me. "GO-AHEAD"!
      Thank you,

      ps not to worry, I'll be gone soon.
