i Ice Cream Pebbles is a cereal produced by the U.S. brand Post.

Pebbles is a fictional character of The Flintstones, an animated 60's American television sitcom.

Curtis LeMay, the U.S. Air Force general, said in1965 that his solution to the problem would be to tell (the North Vietnamese Communists) frankly that they've got to draw in their horns and stop their aggression or we're going to bomb them into the Stone Age. Also, in 2006, the United States threatened to bomb Pakistan back to the stone age unless it joined the fight against al-Qaeda according to Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf.
