Every stoplight can be the Rockin’ Roller Coaster

One of the most popular attractions at Hollywood Studios is theRockin’ Roller Coaster1, and one of the best parts about the Rockin’ Roller Coaster is the initial, 2.8 second, 0-to-57 mph start.

Thankfully, we can now get that kind of start in our every day lives, since the Tesla P85D can do 0-to-60 in 3.2 seconds.2

Excuse me while I go check my sofa cushions for any extra change.

(h/t to The Accidental Tech Podcast for bringing this to my attention.)


  1. It also happens to be one of the only attractions still open at Hollywood Studios, but that’s a whole other issue. 

  2. The P85D’s $120,000 price tag might mean you have to wait another month or two before you buy your Bungalow DVC. 

Hot in Fever – The Tesla Testdrive

Currently hot in my Fever instance – The Tesla Testdrive

The basics are:

  1. The New York Times had a scathing review of the Tesla Model S.

  2. Telsa CEO Elon Muskc responded with a blog post crushing the author of the Times piece and giving data to back up his conclusions.

  3. Other media outlets, such as the Atlantic, have come to the Times’ defense.

  4. John Broader, author of the original Times piece, also responded to Musk.

Personally, if I am betting on whether the New York Times or Tesla is the one manipulating facts, I putting my money on the Times being the fact manipulator every time.
