eBay’s Guide To Finding And Trading Asbestos Items.

By the way guys, just got an article accepted by Cracked. Been throwing pitches left and right, and finally got one to stick.

Just wanted to share something odd I came across in my research for one of my other pitches. Here is eBay’s guide to finding and trading antique household items that were made from asbestos; including irons, hot pads, poker chips, books(!), modeling clay(!!), and even cigarrette filters(!!!). Cause if there’s anything you want to protect your from lungs and sensitive tissues from cigarette smoke, it’s a bundle of asbestos fibers.

Fun fact: The snow that fell during the poppy scene during The Wizard of Oz was pure asbestos fiber. In hindsight, Buddy Ebsen was probably lucky the worst he faced on the set was inhaling tin powder.
