You would be suprised on how many people dont know what asbestos is. I was responsible for part of the asbestos abatement division of my old company. Luckily i only had to sell the jobs and oversee them, i would want no part of the actual removal of it.


I do some removal (not intentionally), I am working a summer construction job and we are renovating a university, we have to demo a lot of the rooms and there is a chance of asbestos being present. This will probably catch up with me in 30 years.



All i can say to you is wear a respirator. Im not too sure on the laws in Canada but In the States your employer has to provide you with one. It may not take 30 years for those fish hook fibers to infest your lungs man. Be safe.

We have them, but I don't wear them because I find it harder to breathe. I guess I will be sporting mine come tomorrow.

Thanks for looking out man. ;-D

DUDE!! 8-o

Wear your mask! You're one of my favorite Canadians - I'd hate to see you have trouble from this stuff.

Safe is sexy, remember! (so is "alive," by the way)

When i was in high school and early college(mid-to-late 90's)

People would say, "Hit me on the hip." What?!?!?!!

I later found/figured out it meant "page/call me" cuz you keep your pager/phone on you belt strap close to your hip...ridiculous.

Ron Mexico

The Ron Mexico controversy
In March, 2005, a woman named Sonya Elliot filed a civil lawsuit against Michael Vick claiming she contracted genital herpes from him and that Vick failed to inform her that he had the sexually-transmitted disease. Elliot further alleged that Vick had visited clinics under the alias "Ron Mexico" to get treatments, thus he knew of his condition. This led to a deluge of fans ordering customized #7 Atlanta Falcons jerseys on NFL.com with the name "Mexico" on the back. However, due to the media interest surrounding the case, the National Football League began disallowing the use of the jersey/name combination two days after the lawsuit.
On April 24th 2006, Vick's attorney revealed that the lawsuit was settled out of court with a undisclosed settlement.[1]
In a related note, the video game developer Midway Games alluded to Michael Vick and his Ron Mexico alter-ego in their Blitz: The League title. Due to Midway's losing their NFL license (EA Sports now has exclusive NFL licensing), all teams and players in the game are fictitious. However, the Washington Redhawks' star quarterback is a mobile, left-handed passer named "Mike Mexico".
