    Just proof that you believe half of what you see and nothing that you read.

    I have been playing the trumpet a very long time and the biggest danger is DIVORCE - due to attitude not medical condition.

    What a bunch of hogwash. Most of us should have been dead a long time ago if that "re-search" had any semblance of truth.

    It's a good article but missed some key points. DON'T: (and the RESULT)

    Forget to breathe (dizzy)

    March in traffic (flat)

    Drop it on your bare foot (obvious)

    The article also leaves out hypersensitivity pneumonitis (Chest Sept. 2010) which is totally preventable AND reversable with monthly flushing of the trumpet with 91% isopropyl alcohol.

    The best way to avoid hypochondria? Ignore anything you can't pronounce. :D

    There's another important piece of medical advice that the author of that oh-so-accurate (sarcasm) article left out--never eat ANYTHING you can't lift.

    Good advice--if you can't lift it you'll have to pay for it and that cuts into beer funds.

    Let's not forget the nausea that comes from listening to trombonists tell jokes, violists complaining about the trumpets being too loud, and working with singers.

    yeah aerobics --- I suggest you join an aerobics class at the University -- (taught by a woman) --- and then I challenge you to keep up with her for the whole 45 minute session - ROFL ROFL ROFL, and that is what separates the women from the men ---- the women can outlast men in aerobics class --- try it -- you will find out for sure --- hope you don't get embarrassed. ROFL ROFL ROFL (or you can prep outside of class with Turbo Jam or something) ROFL ROFL ROFL
