Potato chips give me natural gas explosions, which usually results in forced evacuations.
But, that happened before Y2k, too...

Left unansewered in the mayhem and commotion:
Was this because of an embedded chip problem, or was the result an embedded chip problem?
If so, what were the chips embedded into?
