Ah, I must beg to disagree here.  Did you know that the first school to 
crash by pressing a key was UoJN (University of Japan at Nagasaki)?

Some American tourist stopped by the campus, and started messing with 
their computer system.  He pressed the wrong key (we don't know which 
one, though) and the whole CITY crashed.

It wasn't so much the key he pressed that caused the problems, as it was 
the WAY he pressed the key.

He did it with an A-Bomb.
