Filed under: Random Stuff,Tesla,Tesla Model 3 — Scott @

There are a lot of rumors and guesses as to what the Tesla Model 3 will actually be when it’s finally delivered.  This is a list of sourced information we know as of January 2017 – it does not necessarily mean it’s all 100% true but it’s not just stuff I’ve made up.

See my video at https://youtu.be/Bm6cj7yLK0c for commentary on each of these items – for the most part this blog post is simply the source details for things in the video.

And if you just want to sweet eye candy – pictures and videos then checkout this video and get ready to drool

My Thoughts on the Kansas City Royals 2014 Off Season Moves…so far

Filed under: Baseball,Random Stuff,Sports — Scott @

Because absolutely nobody asked I thought I’d share my thoughts on the Royals off season moves.  Keep in mind, the off season is far from over but as the end of the year approaches it is mostly over so now seems like as good a time as any.

There has been much more discussion and interest around the Royals than usual – and actually that is saying a lot because off season moves is typically ALL Royals fans have starting about June of the still in progress season. This year of course was different.  So very different, and so much better.  But… the season did end and the off season did come and the Royals have needs to fill.

Disney World Crowd Calendar 2014 – Trip Planning – When is the Best Time to Go to Disney World for Low Crowds?

I’m back with my annual sharing of my own Disney World planning tool.

BIG change to this year’s data.  As always, I’m using data from TouringPlans.com – a GREAT source for Disney planning, and they had an amazing year in 2013 and are even better now!  And in 2013 a big change was the way they create level data.  Previously they put all dates in order and the crowd level for each – the bottom 10% of that list were 1’s on the crowd calendar, next 10% 2’s, etc… up to the top 10 on the list of crowd levels at Disney World were 10’s on the crowd calendar.  But they’ve improved on that.  Disney World crowds simply don’t follow a perfect bell curve like that – there are a lot more 5,6,7 days than 1,2,9 and 10 days and the crowd calendar now reflects that MUCH better and overall the crowd calendar is better.  Thus my charts are better and still show the peaks and valley’s of wait times at Disney World.  And remember, the keyword there is wait times – not crowds, this is based entirely on wait times.  Disney World is always crowded, it’s wait times that matter.

Disney World Crowd Calendar 2013 – Disney World Trip Planning – When is the Best Time to Go?

I’m back with my 2013 version of the Disney World crowd calendar.  Again this year I’ve done Saturday – Saturday crowd levels as well as Friday – Sunday crowd levels.

A couple things to keep in mind:  Data is subject to change, by that I mean it will change.  Individual day estimates do get updated as they get closer but in general this does not change the cumulative data for the weeks shown nor does it impact the relative crowd levels for any given week.  So even though I won’t be updating these charts every time there is an update to the numbers the data remains reliable.

Wii U System Update – Moms, Dads, Santa Clause – Don’t Let Christmas Morning Be Ruined with a 2+ Hour Update

Filed under: Random Stuff,Stuff that really pisses me off — Tags: , — Scott @

Epic fail on part of Nintendo and the new Wii U system.

If you haven’t heard – the Wii U requires a MASSIVE update right out of the box before it will even work.  It will take OVER 2 hours!  Yes, 2+ hours to update your brand new Wii U that everybody is excited about on Christmas morning.  And that’s probably optimistic   Christmas morning around the US I’m guessing there will be A LOT (millions?) updating their new Wii U’s which will slow it down even more.  Here’s a great tip – un-box your Wii U, set it up in secret, download and install the update before Christmas then repack in the retail box and wrap for under the tree.  That way it will be ready to play on Christmas morning.

Filed under: Disney — Tags: , , — Scott @

As you know by some past posts (my most popular posts in fact) I’m a big Disney Parks/Disney Vacations fan and part of the fun for me is planning.

I just found a great resource over at WDWPrepSchool.com that I wanted to share.  If you’re new at planning Disney vacations there are a lot of great resources available – absolutely add WDW Prep School to your list of helpful sites.

Here is their infographic on planning a great trip to Disney World in Florida.  Or maybe I should say great planning a great trip.
