I've ingested lots of jet dust, maybe I'll live a long life...

Longer I hope than thousands of London Underground users.

There's a rumour that the older Underground trains had brakepads made/composed of asbestos. Over decades the asbestos dust from these brakepads has been deposited on the walls of the Underground tunnels - this is then blasted through to passengers waiting at stations every time a train approaches.

Bringing the issue (sort of) back on topic, it's said that the standard of Genghis Khan could never be burnt (rumour has it that it was woven from threads of asbestos :-)
