"with" video??

It *is* a video. As in, the entire thing is a video. "With" video would mean that there is non-video content, and there is also a video, so that the non-video content displays "with" the video. In this situation, we have no non-video content, and a video. Therefore, it is not "with" a video, it IS a video.

Do you see the difference? Hopefully I've made that clear.

Bite the bullet?  That's easy.  They used to give musket balls to soldiers for them to bite on during mostly anesthetic-free amputations and such.

Not really, is it possible you could explain it with a video?

I always like "doesn't have a pot to piss in."  It used to be that you could make a little money by selling your urine to leather tanners.  But if you didn't have a pot to piss in you were to poor to make even a few pennies from your piss.
