A few of others I have tried -- the responses are mostly what you would expect:

Do you know the Muffin Man?

Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

Who is The Man?

Who let the dogs out?

I tried "Hasta La Vista, Baby" with a good result.

also, "How much wood would a wood chuck chuck?"

"What is the flight speed of an unladen swallow?"  (Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference)

Here are a few I found

"will you marry me?"
"will you sleep with me?"
"do you have any friends?"
"do you have any brothers and sisters"
"when were you born?'
"is there a god?'
"are you a god?'
"are you friends with Siri?"
"I'm hungry"
"I'm lonely"
I'm horny"
"what are you wearing?"
"are you taking over the world?"
"will computers take over the world"
"where is a good place to hide a body?"

Last night, I asked her "why is a raven like a writing desk?" and got multiple answers. None were the one answer that I knew, but they were all clever.

Tanya-did Alexa ever learn to pronounce your name correctly?
Title: Re: I asked Alexa some questions...
Post by: tanya on July 19, 2015, 08:42:11 pm
No, but she doesn't have that many opportunities to say it, so it's not that big of a deal.

I got fed up with Alexa not being able to answer several of my questions, replying "I can't find the answer to the question I heard."
So I said, "Alexa, shut up!"
And she did. No beep or "OK." Not a peep! :)
