    Some of us need repetiton to remember and learn. Even with similar postings, we learn more as discussion threads may be helpful with updated information and useful takes on similar subjects. Most forums have a similar problems and it isn't the end of the world.

    To the horn advice, I thought you were going to say ... "USE it (to practice)":lol:

    Very good observation!

    Now I am too afraid to mention the clear plastic Mad Max 10.5 I got off Ebay... I am too afraid to ask if it is a great mpce that would allow my Chinese horn to soar to triple Gs??

    Yeah, I better get a thread going on that one, no-one has asked THAT question yet, and most of the members I repect have already made a comment on this thread.... And I would hate to Hi-jack this thread :)

    Well that's a given and I am sure that THAT has already been said in the years TM has been up and running, so why would I ramble on about something that should be obvious to all and has been already said although there are some who say Buddy Rich never practiced and he was one of the best to ever beat a drum and the may try to emulate his lack of practice to never being fatigued and overdoing it. Some athletes aspire and adhere to the Allen Iverson theory of practice (see youtube clip). This kinda reminds me of a Captain Kirk thread although if someone is new to the forum they don't know who he is since he posts at TH (boo hiss) and was someone else here who eventually got banned for his rambling incoherent threads lambasting any and all who disagreed with him. But I digress. What was the question?

    Again this is a forum and new people come aboard every day. They may not know their question has already been beaten to death:lol:.

    As for seeking advice, most folks probably have a path to take in mind and are just looking for validation. Paraphrasing an earlier post, nobody wants to stand alone because it's lonely!

    Then of course there are folks who actually need assistance.

    I love this discussion, and every post brings out parts of the whole truth about humans' nature. We are rationalizing life forms, thanks to an evolving neocotex. As such we are prone to bias. We must learn how to move pass the bias and objectively review the facts to make the best decisions.

    But until mankind can evolve to overcome bias, at least we have bias that keeps us happy with substandard choices are made, as bias will keep us from realizing we could have done better.

    Makes me think of the convoluted saying I developed to press this point home - Practice makes perfect, but nobody's perfect, so why practice.

    Of course that is not true, but the sad thing about it is that some people actually believe that convoluted concept. Why? Bias.
