I'm closer than that to chris. But I don't mind spiders and don't see what all the fuss is about asbestos. Most people of my age lived with asbestos for years with no apparent ill effect. Indeed, when they discovered that it had been used as a building material in my school, they evacuated the whole school apart from my year as we were taking out O Levels.
It was kind of fun to have the whole school to ourselves and the builders.
