‘“Don't blame you," said Marvin, the robot with a brain the size of a planet; and counted five hundred and ninety-seven thousand million sheep before falling asleep again a second later.’

From his book, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Written in the 1970s, although fictional, highlights our mindset to what we thought was possible in the distant future, back then. Illustrating how far we have come, because today your smart phone, with a brain the size of a postage stamp, is capable of processing speeds far-far more in advance of the 1970s Marvin!
