Tesla added some geek art to its “patent wall” according to an @TeslaMotors Tweet on Thursday.

The Tweet comes on the heels of an announcement by CEO, and real-life Iron Man, Elon Musk that Tesla would let other manufacturers infringe on its patents in an effort to accelerate innovation in the electric-car sector.

The image is in reference to the intro screen of Zero Wing, which featured a broken-English phrase “All Your Base Are Belong to Us.” The phrase has since become an Internet meme.

Bill Murray Crashes Bachelor Party

Another Bill Murray story is making the rounds online today, though this one has video footage.

As Stephen wrote to Deadspin:

Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ’s bachelor party. At one point during dinner at a steakhouse, one guy goes to the bathroom downstairs and sees Bill Murray sitting with some people with a fishing vest on. We talked to the waiter to see if we could send him some drinks, to which Bill declined. One of my buddies then went down and asked if he’d come up and say a few words for EJ and got a ‘No thanks.’ My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it’s not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill fucking Murray walks into the room and gives this speech.
