    Phool verb to psychologically fool

    There is no accurate computer model which completely describes the way a trumpet behaves. Until there is one, all theories and subsequent proofs are little more than snake oil. If something works, then it works. Too often it has been up to marketing departments to phool the poor insecure trumpet player into thinking there is a solid scientific basis for this or that modification.

    Up The Empire! Or should I say Long Live Empirical Findings.

    "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time." as is attributed to President Abraham Lincoln. Just avoid being among the naive that be fooled by the hype of marketing. There isn't a better product or service than the one that satisfys yourself.
