More Wolframalpha Easter Eggs

By eric

While finally getting to play around with the new Wolframalpha search (computational knowledge) engine. I found a few more Easter Eggs in addition to the ones posted on Mashable here and here. It appears that the creators of WolframAlpha believe that proverbs (more commonly referred to as aphorisms) are a handy trait for a computational knowledge engine to have. Regardless, they are fun to play with.

  1. I should probably listen to this one myself. Starting out with this cause it is just amusing.
    All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy

  2. Another instance of WolframAlpha being health conscious.
    An apple a day Keeps the doctor away

  3. It wants to be smarter so it tries to learn from its mistakes (not really, but we are being proverbial here anyway).
    Fool Me Once, Shame On You
    Fool Me Once, Shame On You
  4. In the spirit of the Back To The Future (and other cult film references):
    1.21 Gigawatts
    1.21 Gigawatts
  5. Another great proverb reference ignorance.
    Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
    Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
  6. This isn’t really an Easter Egg. I was just expecting a response more like, “There is a season” or something a little more 60s ish. So I am including this one purely for amusement’s sake.
