When to play with the thumb on the black keys?

Why should it be avoided?

I think, I can remember or try, but I think I used my thumb pretty much most of the time on "FF1 - Underwater",
I just hope I havent forgotten too much. We are talking October today...

If my father comes with some money he promised I'll order the digital piano next week,
and then It'll need about 4-5 days to be shipped... ^_^

Well Andrew told me the reason for not using the thumb on the black keys cause its higher risk for slipping of the key. So Ill take notice to that, but I never slip of, and almost never touch the wrong keys when I know it by hart. The messups I usually have is Dynamic-wise. And sometimes dubblekey-hits, but thats rare also...
