I came across a useful workaround tonight and thought i'd share. If you've ever wondered how to avoid those annoying age verification pages directing you to sign-in or signup to an account to view adult content on the YouTubes and other streaming video sites, this post may help.
EDIT: It seems embedded videos on some 3rd party websites may also circumvent certain workplace internet filters into the bargain.
I'll provide some context behind this discovery I suppose... The internet has been buzzing this week over the controversial Iranian Election results. Today came the (inevitable?) posting of an extremely graphic video capturing the aftermath of a fatal shooting of a female Iranian Protester. The video is most definitely NSFW. Consider yourself warned >> http://www.youtube.com/verify_age?&next_url=/watch%3Fv%3Dfmi-LePl894
This workaround consists of switching the regular video link with the embedded version.
