DarkVader: Argh.

Asbestos IS NOT TOXIC.

Asbestos is actually quite inert, that's why it was used so much, it's really good at not reacting with things, thus making it a very good fire barrier.  That property is also why it's dangerous, because the body can't break it down and it tends to have very small, very sharp particles.  Over time, as those particles sit in the lungs, they irritate the lung tissue.  And constant irritation over long periods of time can cause cancer.

So what you're saying is, the Politics tab causes cancer?

That's actually a pretty clever way to catch the criminals. "Oh yeah, that car you broke in had... uhh... Ebola. Ebola sweaters. You should check yourself in right away. For ebola."

Well, I can sue the car's owner for mesothelioma. He didn't put a sign on the car that read "Danger Asbestos in Auto. Do Not Break In/Asbestos Peligro en Auto. Se meten a"

Hey, look on the bright side.  You're fire retardant now in case the car catches on fire.
