Yep, those were the good old days, when we didn't have the internet to instantly 'debunk' those kinds of rumors.

I thought urban legends were generally from more far back than that. Pop rocks urban legends, just does not sound right, but anyway, I loved them.
Do not know his name so can not trace if he is still alive and really can't be assed to contact the commercial company right now.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
