Should it surprise you that Tesla CEO Elon Musk is a fan of Rick and Morty? Probably not.

Well, Tesla owners, things are about to get a lot more meta.


A few days ago, Musk announced that Tesla would roll out a 360-camera theft prevention "Sentry Mode" for all cars with Enhanced Autopilot. The announcement was a surprise; Musk made it in response to a social media user who, after finding a dent in his car, suggested Tesla vehicles should have 360-degree dash cam features.

A few days later, Musk revealed that Tesla's Sentry mode will play Bach's "Toccata and Fugue" during a robbery...

...and that sometimes, believe it or not, it might play the heavy metal version.

He noted that the new system would "Keep Summer safe," a reference to a Rick and Morty episode where the smart car is told to "keep Summer safe," referring to Morty's sister Summer.

Does this mean your Tesla will include rather violent antitheft measures à la StickDeath's anti-auto theft Security System series? ...Maybe.

A Tesla representative did not elaborate on what Musk meant by his tweet, but Engadget posited that Sentry Mode will feature an "always-on dash cam function or will switch on automatically when it senses a blow or break-in to the vehicle."

A "rough beta" test is coming soon, though.

People seem pretty intrigued..




Did we mention that the puns are also pretty heavenly?



Can't wait to see if this lives up to our expectations.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

I've seen enough end-of-the-world movies to know that when the end does come that The Rock will not be there to save my lazy self from impending doom.

Life isn't like the movies, sad to say. The relationship humans have to the world is remarkably unhealthy, and as we continue to reckon with the consequences of big business running the world, exploiting resources, and pushing us ever further toward climate catastrophe—

*takes a deep breath*

Sorry, got a bit carried away there... the anxiety is real.

I promise there are some more humorous answers sprinkled in this article, thanks to the efforts of Redditor User34884, who asked the online community:

"What will cause the fall of Western civilization?"
