    What is he going to do?

    [Link deleted by Probus]

    I'm having trouble understanding what he's going to do at 7:10
    what I hear is "change my wall", without the 'll', and then he's gonna grab a couple of sets of "mitch press"(?)
    then he comes back to the thing that he's going to change at 8:10
    they must be both mechanical terms for something in a car, the second seems to me like a tool.

    I'm not sure whether he's going to change his wall - the backdrop - change his will - desire - or change his oil. He does seem like a tool, though.

    I'm gonna change my oil ….

    … a couple of sets of bench press ….

    Even a few seconds' listening to him made me feel dirty.

    I think it's oil. That's what it sounds like, and that makes more sense.

    Plus, he says rotate my tyres. Yes, it's definitely change my oil.

    You're absolutely right, he says change my oil. I deeply regret my error because through a horrible chain of events, it led me to listen to more of that poor excuse for a human's screed.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    I nearly deleted the link on the grounds that his words almost amount to hate speech against women. The only reason I didn't was that Tdol had let it stand.

    Learners: by all means listen to how he speaks. But pay no attention to what he says. His accent (oal for oil, pedestool) is what one begins to hear soon after heading south and west from Chicago along the path of old Route 66.

    I would wholeheartedly support deleting the link and indeed, this entire thread. It's part of a web that could guide someone towards adopting the vlogger's misogynist philosophy.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    I pray to God that his overt misogyny is a boring and pathetic attempt at humour, but I find it incredible that a man who looks to be in his thirties would find this amusing.

    I let it stand because the question was about language, which is legitimate for the forum, and, frankly, he is such an idiot that the best antiseptic is exposure to daylight.
