Nick is testing his roommate Ian to see if he can be really patient, because living with Nick requires a lot, a lot of patience.

Hello. My name is Nick. But you probably know me as Misterepicmann. Or Shirley. But that's a story for another time. I joined YouTube back in 2009 with no real expectations other than to be myself on camera. Right now I am pursuing a degree in cinematic arts at college and I certainly hope to use that knowledge to make movies one day (Spitting water at my roommate and riding a broom around the room doesn't count...lolz). I currently own a company called Lost Light Films which is my primary focus after school and I hope I can merge my efforts into that company once school is completed...if I actually pass.


-- My roommate recently underwent a second patience test.

Ah, you, you look good, you look good today!

Hi, let's go on a safari.

Sir, today you look like a star.

Sir, it looks so good, I can't even explain it.

Hello, young man, welcome to the dentist's office.
Look at that cavity, aughhh.

Your hair is gorgeous, oh.

Excuse me sir, would you like to buy some goldfish. Try them, they're really good.

Excuse me, at the computer, do you like my hair?

So, I can't even explain how good your hair looks right now.

-- He was a good sport and he passed

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

YOU LOOK GOOD= It should be "you look well", but it is common to use the adjective when we should use an adverb of manner, especially in American English.

ON A SAFARI= Notice the use of the preposition ON in this expression (we don't say "to a safari").

A STAR= A movie star, an actor or actress who is a celebrity.

I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN IT= You look so incredibly good that I have no words to explain how good you look.

CAVITY= a soft decayed area on a tooth, usually creating a hollow (a hole) or spot of a black colour.

GORGEOUS= /gɔ:*dʒəs/ Fantastic, wonderful, great.

GOLDFISH= A small fish of a bright orange colour very common in aquariums (see picture)

RIGHT NOW= At this very moment. We often use RIGHT to emphasize expressions of time and space: right here, right now, right today (exactly today, etc).

A GOOD SPORT= (coll.) A person who accepts rules or difficult situations well. Also, a pleasant companion.
