A couple of years ago we published a post titled 131 funny, geeky and creepy questions to ask Cortana. That post had a fantastic engagement. Despite the original 131 questions, the community discovered hundreds more. In fact, you are still finding new questions even today. Be sure to check out the comments on that article.
With that in mind, we thought it would be really cool to figure out what questions we could ask Alexa. We wondered if we could ask her some of the funny, geeky and, creepy questions we asked Cortana. But we also went looking for plenty of new questions.
We don’t want to show her responses. That’s for you to enjoy. Besides, who likes spoilers anyway?
Okay, in the name of science, just one spoiler. Plus, it’s a great excuse to quote some Monty Python.
“Alexa, what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?”
Tip: Be sure to ask Alexa, “Give me the Five-Nine”. This command actually starts an interactive skill with Alexa and is reminiscent of the old choose your own adventure novels. The Alexa adventure is set in the world of one of my favorite TV shows, Mr. Robot. If you haven’t seen that show I highly recommend it. It takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. It’s a lot of fun.
Let’s smash the 400 questions you found for Cortana! Let us know if we missed any good ones in the comments below.[Read more…] about 131 funny, geeky and creepy questions to ask Alexa
