Fun things to ask wolfram alpha

Wolfram|Alpha

My favorite so far is What is the meaning of life? 42

I'm trying to think of one of those cool tricky math questions to ask it but my mind is blanking.

Google's had that easter egg for years. Google "the answer to life the universe and everything" to find it.

Wolfram Alpha is a useful application, but I don't get all the hype.

I knew I would get it somehow!!!

I'm convinced that at the point WA went live, they had spent more time programming in gimmick answers than writing code to solve actual problems.

I just found out about this site today and thought TFP would like to know about it, but I guess you already do. They need to expand their data; They couldn't tell me the gestation period of the etruscan shrew, or the engine displacement of a 1966 mustang.
