Agreed. I am even old enough to get a kit called "Asbestos-The
Friendly Mineral". Those days are over.

At my "age" that would be a challenge.

Deleted copyright and lies repeated by one infected with parrotosis.

One has to wonder how many children did Jan harm in her day care?

Sadly they are. The asbestos which was the most harmful was from US mines.
Canadian stuff was far less harmful and could be considered safe if
administered properly. What a shame corporate paranoia is.

I know you aren't kidding, but I never heard of that. No private ownership?

How much do they pay for it? I can get unlimited amounts. Why would they ban
private ownership. Is it strictly because of their fear of use by bomb
makers who wouldn't be following the law in the first place?

Sheesh

That must be why I'm so dead. I've held mercury in my hand countless
times - when I was at the dentist as a child, while doing chemistry at
high school, ...

Making stupid statements like "A single drop on a human hand can be
irreversibly fatal" just illustrates how weak the argument against
mercury is.
