    Fun video.
    I noticed they put "Staring Tesla" in the credits, instead of "Starring". Though I'm sure it will attract a lot of stares. ;)

    And to all those who talk about breaks and breaking -- please stop. It's very confused/confusing. Braking, pls, with the brakes. No breaking with the breaks!

    No, it's not. Only the simple-minded could possibly find it confusing. Get over it.

    If you want to "help" or "correct" people when it matters, go for it. Harping on it when it doesn't matter just makes you smaller and wastes everyone's bandwidth -- internet and human.

    So did you un-add the ad? :tongue:
    "Ad" is short for advertisement.
    "Add" is short for addition. :rolleyes:

    Oops! Wheres the darn auto spell check and correct when you need it!

    Edit: Ahaa, turns out it was the auto correct that came up with that typo, and I didn't catch it before hitting post. I noticed when I went back in to fix, it was trying to suggest it yet again.

    Weird! Trooly. Can't find such a word/spelling in any dictionary I have access to. How did your auto-correct ever come up with it? Does it just make sh** up?
    :confused: :biggrin:

    Spellcheck can defiantly be tricky. At times my attention to its foibles makes me loose my train of thought. I start free associating, as I am now.

    If you type in odd words frequently and don't correct them the spell checker assumes they are some kind of technical term and adds them to the dictionary.

    Isn't Trooly Scrumptious the name of Mr. Potts' girlfriend?

    I liked this part:

    "...so what the he’ll, let’s do it with spelling. "

    Can a moderator fix the title of the OP in the thread below in the Model S forum?

    Are the 21" Wheels stopping your Perfomance upgrade?
