    Did they order that book from those Mesothelioma commercials? I don’t know a single person who has or has had this disease. Is this illness even real?

    If you know someone who has had it, did they get big bucks from a settlement? Have you ever considered snorting asbestos so you could get lung cancer and get some of that cash?

    I'm trying to figure out how to get in on this, or the trans-vaginal mesh lawsuits.

    Are you soliciting for a class-action suit?

    Nah. Just curious cause I see those advertisements multiple times every day, so I figure someone is cashing in.

    For about a year in the 1980's, I worked for a uniform delivery service. One of my larger stops was a trucking maintenance building that did basic trailer services, especially brake pad replacement. By the time I was done hauling out the dirty uniforms my nostrils were filled with a blackish, soot like substance. I had to force water into my nose to get it all out. Thankfully, I only stopped there once a week for a year, but I've always wondered if that shit will come back to bite me in the ass. I believe brake pads are still made of asbestos, and if not any longer, I'm sure they were then.

    I would say 1/2 of the guys my dad worked with died from it. They all started in the 60' s and worked up until the 90's. He always seemed aware he was gonna get sick from asbestos or something from working at a refinery. I didn't bother with those settlement things, my sister did though, and I think she maybe got 30-40k since he died.

    My grandfather died from it in the mid 1970s.....before all of the lawsuits started.

    My grandfather got a settlement as part of a larger lawsuit from where he worked. It wasn't a big payout, but I don't know how much. I don't know that he even really has it. A doctor examined him and said he had it, but he's in his 90s now and not suffering any symptoms associated with it.

    My uncle got a 3 million dollar settlement and only lived 5 more months. He died at 67. Needless to say, my aunt is living large.

    He suffered badly the last 5 years of his life. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
