* Main/BeenThereShapedHistory: Jára Cimrman is the epitome of this trope. Amongst many, MANY things – he created the light bulb, donated two rabbits to Australia, advised [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dmitri_Mendeleev Mendeleev]] to rotate his draft of the Periodic Table of Elements, suggested adding a sister to the [[Creator/AntonChekhov Checkhov]]'s play ''[[Theatre/ThreeSisters Two Sisters]]'' and even invented the Internet itself (started as a telephone info-booth with a group of teachers inside, one of them being a stuttering man ''W-W-W.Weber'').

Despite being virtually unknown abroad, Cimrman's spirit looms large over Czech culture and popular consciousness. Born in Vienna,[[note]]which is in Austria and has always been in Austria[[/note]] he was the quintessential entrepreneurial, creative and hopelessly unsuccessful Czech underdog of the late Hapsburg period. He was an inventor, a writer, a playwright, a composer, a criminologist, and many other things. He also would have won the "Greatest Czech" poll held by the Czech TV in 2005 (following a template from the BBC), were it not for the perfectly negligible technicality that he is completely and utterly fictional.

%% DO NOT point out the character is fictional, or that he "allegedly" did something. That's against the whole point of the character! Once at the END of the introduction is enough.
