[OS X] Reduce shutdown time to zero seconds

Is there a way to change the OS X shutdown so that it :

a) shuts the o/s down immediately without any further user interaction (ie. the "I'm a responsible adult and I know what I'm doing when I invoke the shutdown command" approach),
or
b) shuts down in some shorter amount of time (say 5 seconds vs. the default 60 seconds) and defaulting to executing the shutdown automatically after 5 seconds unless the user manually clicks 'Cancel'?

Hold down the power button until it shuts off..if you don't care about properly closing programs and apps...

Yes, hold the OPT key while clicking Shutdown from the top left Apple menu. Pressing OPT while in the Apple menu changes "Shutdown..." to "Shutdown"

"Shutdown..." has the delay
"Shutdown" no delay

When you hold OPT and then click on Shutdown, it immediately closes all apps and shutdown with no user intervention or delays (no annoying dialog box). Same goes for Restart. OPT + Restart is immediate restart.

And it is faster than holding the power button

Ctrl+Option+Command+Eject will shutdown OS X immediately.

Ctrl+Command+Eject will reboot immediately.

On Macs without an Eject key substitute the Power key instead.

Even though those shortcuts are supposed to to a proper shutdown or reset, when I use power (since my rMBP doesn't have eject), it immediately powers off with no shutdown (like holding the power button). Those short cuts are supposed to work with ML but on my rMBP they don't.
