Tesla Model S Driver Asleep
Motorist Dakota Randall from Massachusetts captured a Tesla driver fast asleep behind the wheel while cruising on autopilot at 60mph. Even more bizarre is that the passenger sitting next to him also appears to be sleeping and has their head rested on the safety belt. Tesla Autopilot is essentially an advanced driver-assistance system with lane centering, adaptive cruise control, self-parking, automatic lane changes, and the ability to summon the car to and from a garage or parking spot.

Power Wheels Philadelphia
Power Wheels come in all shapes and sizes, but they weren’t designed to be street-legal, yet that didn’t stop this man from driving his in rush hour traffic. Sure, these ride-on toy cars are built with realistic features, like FM radios, opening / closing doors, functional hoods, power brakes, as well as both forward / reverse gears, but as you’re about to see, this one seems to have gotten some power upgrades.

An 18-year-old from Haryana’s Yamunanagar in India was given a BMW for his birthday instead of the Jaguar he requested.

What do you do when your electric vehicle is out of juice, and there’s no power outlet nearby? You should never park in a stranger’s front lawn and leech off their electricity for starters. That’s exactly what one Tesla Model 3 owner did in Lake Worth, Floriday. Thankfully, homeowner Phil Fraumeni decided to let the young man off easy. He was first alerted of the vehicle when his gardener asked him in the morning to move the white Tesla on his lawn, and that quickly escalated to a phone call to the police.

World's Smallest iPhone XS
We’re just a little over one month away from Apple’s September iPhone keynote, and to hold you over, we bring you an interesting unboxing video of a handset that you probably won’t find in stores here. It’s officially called the “SOYES XS”, but in reality, those who have seen it say it’s just a miniature iPhone XS. Measuring just 3.70″ x 2.01″ x 0.39″ and weighing just 99g, it most likely is the world’s smallest iPhone XS knockoff and actually looks the part too.

Before planning a cosplay shoot with fake weapons, make sure it isn’t in a public area, or else you may end up on the news, and not for the reasons you’d expect. One woman was spotted holding what appeared to be a rifle at Seacliff State Beach in Monterey Bay, and even though she was dressed in a costume, some people said it was not the right place or time to do that, especially with children in the vicinity.
