The control tablet in Tesla's new Model 3 does almost everything: it controls the A/C, tracks your speed, gives your directions, opens the power ports, and can even drive the car for you (using Tesla's autonomous driving systems). It is also capable of one feat which few sci-fi novels could have ever predicted: fart mode.


The tablet contains one "drawer" filled specifically with Tesla Easter Eggs—fun add-ons meant only for humor or novelty. While the Atari video games or crackling fire and enticing music of "romance mode" may grab some people's attention, the most exciting new technological breakthrough in the Model Three can be found by pressing the whoopee cushion icon.

Using "Fart Mode," the tablet user can make it sound like any one of the car's passengers is tooting in one of seven distinct different ways, each given a name referencing an inside joke from Tesla culture.

On Twitter, several Tesla drivers were also experimenting with the ability to toot every time a turn signal was activated:

Twitter users knew the future when they saw it:



The possibilities implied by fart mode are staggering to say the least.



Fart mode is going to sell more cars than some engine ever did.



With fart mode a part of life, things are only getting better!


Well done, Elon Musk.

Congratulations on the technological breakthrough of the century!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
