Esting, is an activity that I 'coined'. Extreme Living. It is a collection of adventures, participations, accomplishments that fall under the headings of "Highest", "Longest", "Lonliest", etc.. A co-worker asked if dating the "World's dumbest girl" would qualify...but no, it has not been published as so. He DID work on the World's Largest Cruise Ship for awhile....that worked. To qualify as an "Est" it must be published as can be long as it is published as "est" in Guiness, on a menu, in a brochure, on a sign, on a website....etc.
