** In his 1996 book ''Dave Barry in Cyberspace'', he joked that buying the right computer and getting it to work was about as easy as building a makeshift nuclear reactor out of watch parts. As the world at large learned just two years later in 1998, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Hahn David Hahn of Clinton Township, Michigan]] essentially did just that in 1994, although his nuclear reactor never reached critical mass.
