Tesla recently pushed an update to software on the Model S and Model X that included a not-so-secret Easter egg.  Elon Musk announced in a Tweet that if you press the autopilot button four times in quick succession, this rainbow road will pop up in the dashboard screen. Unfortunately, the new level doesn't include any theme music:

Yesterday, news feeds were stormed by a couple 'shocking' (...) in-game discoveries. We had the unearthing of the prehistoric Mike Tyson Punch Out!! Easter Egg.



And we also had the super rare Super Mario Bros. 3 slide animation..We'll take a gander here, and assume many of you have long since known about at least one of these super secrets..

Anyways, here's the 1 frame animation in all its unadulterated glory.

Great, now they're obviously going to patch it. Thanks a lot, man. In all seriousness, a job well done to this champ for unearthing a truly archaic, hidden video game gem. Can we get a press release statement from Tyson himself, on the matter?

If you've played an Elder Scrolls game, you're probably familiar with the glowing Nirnroot plant, valued for its healing properties. If you're also playing Fallout 4 (who am I kidding, of course you are), you may have stumbled across an "experimental plant" that looks an awful lot like Nirnroot aboard an airship research station. 

I know what you're thinking, "it's just a reused asset," but, consider the notes from the scribe who discovered the plant in the Fallout universe: according to him, the plant emits a light that is a result of bioluminescence, not radiation, and makes him feel stronger when he drinks a tea made from the plant. Could they be the same plant?

It may very well be that these are totally different, but it's fun to speculate about a connection between these two universes.
