regression a la Dan Meyer

Dan Meyer has a fascinating approach to linear regression - observing how long a toaster takes to pop up for various settings

there's a film clip of nine toasters, on settings 1 to 9

a timer enables you to see how much time has elapsed

apart from the first setting there seems to be a good linear relationship between the setting and time taken to pop-up:

what is the straight line graph rule?
