Showerthoughts: Car Edition

Everyone thinks the real epiphanies come when you're in the shower, but we're not so sure. Who hasn't been on a long drive and suddenly asked themselves one of life's burning questions? That's right; the car is where it's at when it comes to finding the answers. 

And if you don't believe us, just ask Elon Musk, who had the idea for Tesla while driving. Ok, that might not be true, but you get the point – sitting in traffic gives you plenty of time to think about everything from the absurd to solving life's problems. 

Here are our showerthoughts... car edition πŸš—
