    Man, Pro Action Replay... That brings back memories... I got it just for throwing red fireballs with Ryu and other tricks on Street Fighter.

    I think the whole razor blades in Halloween candy was bullshit too.

    Also the kid that did LSD and permanently thought he was a glass of orange juice, yelling "don't spill me!" whenever someone came near him. LSD has no permanent side effects. You also can't have flashbacks.

    EGM, they also ran the Ermac rumor for Mortal Kombat (which is sort of true).

    -medical needles found in cans of Pepsi
    -gators in the NYC sewers
    -don't turn on the interior cabin light while driving otherwise the police will arrest you (can blame moms everywhere for this one)

    Although the cyanide in Tylenol bottles in the Chicago area was real, and the reason we now have tamper-proof packaging.

    this is more of a "workplace" rumor than a "playground" rumor, but I just NEEDED to share it after I remembered it today.

    bit of backstory. It took me about 4 or so years to get hired at Walmart. they kept saying they wanted me to work there, but the interviews were never okay'd… My brother asks and find out why. turns out there was a rumor I worked there before, but got fired for...get this...PUNCHING A KID. luckily this was cleared up, and I got the job the following month, but DANG! My uncle and I had a few good laughs about it.

    They're probably are so many punchings there that they lost track of who punched who. ;) 

    Seriously though, that's funny. Glad they got it straightened out.

    There was an rumor floating around my old school about a “secret room” that could only be accessed through a hidden button which, conveniently, no one knew where it was. Me, being the smart kid I was, never believed such nonsense. (I was the kid who read books at recess).

    Of course, the REAL secret room was the old bomb-shelter in the basement. ;)
