Euphonium and all of the saxes. Though I probably won't be playing too much sax after I go off to college.

If I agreed with you, we both would be wrong.

It would certainly put me on notice, if it happened.

I recall that $10 Billion figure was a sworn, FEC document. By law, it's suppose to be accurate.

He's very lucky that's not enforceable.

Part of the problem is that the FEC document is designed to determine conflicts of interest, not net worth. You're allowed to show gross revenues from a business, so it's largely irrelevant. It's not designed to keep people from exaggerating their interests.

The second part is that Trump is a relentless liar. By his own admission, his net worth isn't his assets minus his liabilities, but just what he wants to say is true.


The third part is that it doesn't matter in the end how rich Trump is, because we're hiring him to run something, and there's no question that running things is not his forte, as his supporters are quickly learning (just kidding, his supporters don't learn any quickly, if at all). Lots of people make tons of money without being qualified for the presidency. Dumb, poor people think all rich people must be pretty much smart about everything, and it's just not true.

We had another thread just recently where someone's leaking f valve apparently caused the horn to be severely flat. 

Cant' find it right now.

Not anymore.

In high school, I took up bari sax (and harmonica, alto recorder, & jaw harp. Plus piano lessons as a child).
In college, I realized I still wasn't good enough at trombone, and I refocused all my practice time towards that. My philosophy hasn't changed much since then.

It's a lot more useful to be known as a pretty good trombone player than an almost-competent bari sax player. Less frustrating to my own ears, too.

Anyone have a 1311CF or better yet a 1317CF bell you would like to trade for a 1215CF that is lacquered in good condition?

Clearly the easiest way to deal with the problem is to relax the OCD tendencies,

Not OCD at all. The OP's slide hook is blocking the slide handle from closing to 1st.
I have a different mental issue; CRS (Can't Remember S---)that more than once caused me to flub an entrance because I forgot to unlock my slide following a long rest. Now the only time the slide lock gets used is to transport the horn. Otherwise, I rely on a carefully adjusted trombone stand, and on my left pinky. I take all the mental shortcuts I can. I'm older than Trump.

Cops aren't stupid... It's easier to arrest the non-violent people who are standing around not doing anything.
