The Machinist featured a character who hadn't slept for a year. I wondered if this is possible, considering how you'll occasionally hear of some dedicated worker dropping dead after not sleeping for a week. Apparently, yes. The Vietnamese farmer Thai Ngoc has not slept since 1973! He's still healthy, aside from some liver problems. No word as to if he's been growing cocoa.
