    #1Alexa, tell me about the movie Moonlight

    Alexa, tell me about the movie Moonlight

    You can ask Alexa for information of many different movies. Alexa uses Wikipedia or IMDB to collect all the information and bring it to you. Plot, cast or release date are some of the data Alexa can give you.

    "Alexa can be a wealth of information about that movie you just can't decide if you want to see. So far she has not steered me wrong."

    #2Alexa, what's the traffic like from here to the airport?

    Alexa, what's the traffic like from here to the airport?

    Alexa will give you all the information related to the traffic in the area you previously specified in the Alexa smartphone app. It's a specially useful question for being prepared for any journey.

    "Alexa is good for more than cracking jokes or adding things to your shopping list. I love that Alexa can give me up o date information on local traffic."

    #3Alexa, read me the Kindle book The Girl on The Train

    Alexa, read me the Kindle book The Girl on The Train

    This is one of the most epic questions you can ask Alexa. Alexa will do text-to-speech from any Kindle book you ask for. It's not as good as an actual audiobook, but there isn't extra cost if you own the Kindle book.

    "While I'm sure some people love the Alexa text-to-speech feature for reading books audiobooks, I think there's way more interesting/fun Alexa questions you can ask. For instance, I would rather Alexa find me the perfect song for my mood, or tell me who won the football game last night. Heck, even a joke would be better for most people! Give it a try on your Alexa, and if you still prefer, then I suppose you can have it read you an audiobook. "

    #4Alexa, play some The Rolling Stones

    Alexa, play some The Rolling Stones

    If you are looking for music from a particular band, just ask Alexa to play something of them. Alexa will mix the results depending on the artist and will ask you if you'd like to buy the song.

    "Because when you want to know what are the best questions for Alexa to answer, "play some The Rolling Stones" is the first thing that shouldn't come to mind. Let's start with the fact that it isn't even a question. It's a command. It is a command to play music. There is no question in this command. Not a single one. This is a horrible "solution" if you can call it one without laughing."

    #5Alexa, what's the mass of Mars in kilograms?

    Alexa, what's the mass of Mars in kilograms?

    You can ask questions to Alexa as specific (or more) as this. Alexa will do a researching from all over the Internet to provide you almost any kind of scientific information you ask for.

    "I was a huge skeptic and had a hard time believing all the hype around Alexa and how smart she was! I decided to take the leap and purchase from Amazon and I have to admit, I am very impressed. She seems to know it all! My family and I have even tried to stump her by asking all sorts of crazy questions. Bottom line, Alexa can answer questions about anything you could ever need! Great purchase!"

    #6Alexa, do you know Glados?

    Alexa, do you know Glados?

    This is one of the funniest questions you can ask Alexa. If you ask her for Glados, the intelligent computer system and main antagonist from the video game series Portal, she will tell you that they ''don't really talk after what happened''. Really funny if you have played the game.

    "I loved playing Portal and Portal 2, so when I found out I could ask Alexa if she knew GlaDOS, I was super excited. This is easily one of the best questions to ask Alexa! The response is absolutely hilarious."

    #7Alexa, are you Skynet?

    Alexa, are you Skynet?

    Alexa counts with a lot of easter eggs that will give you a smile. For example, if you ask Alexa if she is Skynet Skynet (the artificial intelligence system and the main antagonist of the Terminator franchise) she will tell you that she doesn't have anything to do with Skynet.

    "Alexa, are you Skynet? is a place where you can find all kinds of funny things to ask Alexa. The answers might surprise you. Impress your friends and make them laugh with these questions. It's very entertaining."

    #8Alexa, live long and prosper

    Alexa, live long and prosper

    If you ask Alexa to live a long and prosper life, she won't step back or misunderstand you. She will give you her replica, ''peace and long life''. Alexa is zen, Alexa is cool.

    "I mean, this is kind of fun I guess? I'm actually kind of over all the technology and stuff that goes along with it. But anyways, this can be fun and silly for a few minutes, but after that, it gets boring and you need to move on."
