Tony Bullimore exemplifies the word 'hero'. In 1997, his boat overturned in the icy waters of the Pacific or Atlantic, and he managed to survive by staying under his boat for 6 days.
Other people would have been tempted into some kind of action - possibly suicide - but Tony overcame these instincts and managed to do absolutely nothing, except eat, sleep and occasionally urinate on himself.
Unfortunately, he fell into a stupor in march 1998 and has never been seen since.
