** "The worsening economy takes center stage in February, when, amid much fanfare, Congress passes, and President Bush signs, an ''economic stimulus package'' under which the federal government will give taxpayers back several hundred dollars apiece of their own money, the idea being that they will use this money to revive the U.S. economy by buying TV sets that were made in China. This will seem much more comical in the fall."

** In ''Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need'', he tells a story about how he really angered his wife by driving past a roadside attraction that she wanted to see. He jokes that if she ever files for divorce, she'll probably bring that incident up. Years later, they ''did'' get divorced.

** His son was once in a pretty serious accident, causing Dave to write about all the times he's felt the horror of wondering if his son was alright. Thankfully, Robert lived and is a healthy adult (and a father himself) today.

** 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.
