What does the term “rinse” mean?

In answer the question :
If you are asking this then you probably did not catch the channel 4 tv programme which coined the underground phrase for girls (usually but not always glamorous girls) that exploit men’s weaknesses by getting cash or other material gifts from these men by using their charms in exchange for their time, friendship and in some cases financial humiliation.

We have conducted a poll and for the guys it seems that most who participate enjoy the thrill of being humiliated and with the large bulk of visitors wish to find out more about the art of becoming a rinser or being rinsed. Again by our open poll it suggests that many people think that Rinsing is a good idea (almost 70%). Whilst some claim to have rinsed hundreds of thousands in gifts or money; others are just starting out.

The term golddigger used to be used but in todays social media savvy generation twitter, bbm facebook and youtube are all free tools the girls are using. The once “undergorund” term of rinsing< along with the help of the c4 documentary brings the art fully into the mainstream.

Accusation breeds guilt | OUPblog

The following are two simple results that constraint the number of liars, and the number of truth-tellers, in any such group (I’ll provide proofs of these results in the comments after a few days).

“Accusations of untrustworthiness tend to decrease the overall level of trust we place in those involved”

Result 1: If, for some number m, each person in the group accuses at least m other people in the group of lying (and there is no paradox) then there are at least m liars in the group.

Result 2: If, for any two people in the group p1 and p2, either p1 accuses p2 of lying, or paccuses p1 of lying (and there is no paradox), then exactly one person in the group is telling the truth, and everyone else is lying.

These results support an affirmative answer to our question: Given a group of people, the more accusations of untrustworthiness (i.e., of lying) are made, the higher the minimum number of people in the group that must be lying. If there are enough accusations to guarantee that each person accuses at least n people, then there are at least n liars, and if there are enough to guarantee that there is an accusation between each pair of people, then all but one person is lying. (Exercise for the reader: show that there is no situation of this sort where everyone is lying).

Money, Greed and The Meaning of Life – Chris Herd – Medium

People do astounding things for money; they subject themselves to heinous conditions, participate in the most degrading circumstances and waste their most precious resource, time, in the pursuit of it.

The adage that money makes the world go round is the saddest reality of life.

On a planet where the poor could be lifted from the depths of despair through simple monetary investment but aren’t speaks of the greed intrinsic within the human race.

The Grip of Greed | Psychology Today

A deeper understanding of greed can help us to see that it is not only material goods that we desire money for, but also the security and independence that wealth can bring. Wealth is not a bad thing, in and of itself. It can help us meet our basic needs as well as enjoy luxuries which make life better. In many ways, greed is foremost a matter of the heart, of our inner lives. Greed is an excessive love or desire for money or any possession. Greed is not merely caring about money and possessions, but caring too much about them. The greedy person is too attached to his things and his money, or he desires more money and more things in an excessive way. Greed has unpleasant effects on our inner emotional lives. The anxiety and restlessness we feel when we long for some possession, and the false assurance that upon gaining it we’ll be put at ease and satisfied places us in a literally vicious circle. By contrast, the virtue of generosity is most present not only when we share, but enjoy doing so

Seven Signs of the Greed Syndrome | INSEAD Knowledge

Recognising the greed syndrome

What are the warning signs of uncontrolled greed?

  1. Overly self-centered behaviour becomes the first give-away of greedy people. Greedy people are always saying “me, me, me” with very little regard for the needs and feelings of others.
  2. Envy and greed are like twins. While greed is a strong desire for more and more possessions (such as wealth and power), envy goes one step further and includes a strong desire by greedy people for the possessions of others.
  3. Greedy people lack empathy. Caring—being concerned about the feelings of others—is not part of their repertoire. As such, they have little qualms about causing pain to others. Their inability to empathise, their lack of genuine interest in the ideas and feelings of others, and their unwillingness to take personal responsibility for their behaviour and actions makes them very difficult people to be with.
  4. They are never satisfied.  Greedy people look at the world as a zero-sum game. Instead of thinking that everyone would benefit as the pie gets larger, they view the pie as a constant and want to have the biggest part. They truly believe that they deserve more, even if it comes at someone else’s expense.
  5. Greedy people are experts in manipulation. They are highly talented in taking credit for work done by others. They can be charming, but their principal agenda is to have people around them that feed their ego.
  6. Greedy people are into the short run; they are focused on satiating their immediate needs and leave it to others to cope with the consequences. To illustrate, as leaders of corporations, they are more interested in getting their bonuses, instead of making investments for future innovation, or to share whatever benefits accrued with their employees.
  7. In the pursuit of their material needs, they know no limits. Greedy people are not good at maintaining boundaries. They will compromise moral values and ethics to achieve their goals. They look for loopholes or clever ways to outsmart the rules and regulations that have been put into place to moderate this kind of behaviour.
