Well, the guy above does. In fact, the guy above – Australian fisherman Dan Hoey – possesses the fear-crushing balls of a man who can shoo a shark away with a broom, and laugh whilst he's doing it.

"The shark nearly took a chunk out of my Yamaha motors, leaving a few small dents and scratches," Hoey told The Herald Sun.

What a guy.
