True. still unreadable. but you're right, if it was just a thumbnail, you'd still be able to click it and it'd open the image seperately, but still be tiny.

That's impressive, private! I bet you can suck a golf ball through a garden hose!

Not only does your reference not work, the D.I. deals with recruits, not privates.

that may be true but I doubt he was trying to be politically correct to actual drill instructors, I believe he was being PC to the movie in which Robert L. Ermey called the recruits, privates

Doesn't work? I thought we were on the subject of spherical objects passing through a long narrow space?

So... What happens when only the third one is pressed?

It's the same as one and two, and since your index and middle finger can generally move faster, only that version is used.

I generally only use 3 instead of 12.

I find it easier to hit one valve rather than two.

I also play the Horn, and I use similar combinations there that are easier, and then adjust pitch with my hand and lips

Also, using only the third can make the note slightly off-pitch. At least that's what everyone taught me...

yes, for trumpets that is true. I play euphonium, so we don't have that problem
