What is pimping?
- 0Jun 3, '12 by NolanderNo, not the prostitute business. I see threads about "lets get a pimping thread". Is it basically just trivia questions related to nursing or what?

So a pimping thread would be a thread devoted to promoting or advertising something, such as a blog/forum/book/website/business/etc.
Hope this helps.

When I did my surgery observation I got pimped by the surgeon about cardiothoracic anatomy and by the nurse on cardiac medications

Very medical related.
