    Oh, I don't think he was joking at all. He was seriously trying to impart his "wisdom" to other men. Good riddance to him. I wish Youtube would clean itself up.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    I haven't heard pumping and dumping or pumping and humping before. Would it be OK to use this expression as an intention of starting a relationship with a fine young lady?

    I think you know the answer to that question.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    I just read your previous responses. Obviously it is not appropiate in your view. However, I wonder if as slang it's fine.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    Pumping and dumping is the opposite of starting a relationship. It's a nasty, crude way to say you plan to persuade a girl to have sex with you and then abandon her.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    Pump and dump is mainly used in the world of investing. Scammers purchase quantities of worthless unlisted company shares, so-called penny stocks. They then begin calling people who may have money to invest, but who are unsophisticated financially. Doctors and dentists are frequent targets. Victims are lured into buying the stocks by greed and the promise of easy profits. (You've got to get in right away. This won't last.) As the dupes buy the stocks their price rises, enabling the scammers to sell at a profit.

    The technique is called pump and dump, and the premises from which the scammers operate are called boiler rooms.

    Maybe so, but that's not the way the person in the video is using it.

    No doubt you are right. I didn't even wstch the whole video, and now that it's gone from our site I never will.

    I watched enough to feel dirty — maybe 90 seconds' worth. That was far more than enough.

    Re: What is he going to do?

    I just checked and I'm glad to report the video is no longer on Youtube, or at least not under its original name.
