jesus christ wolfram alpha, I'm sorry I asked
seriously, if you search for this you get two random (body part) digits https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=two+random+digits
this may be the greatest easter egg of all or first contact with an AI, and the fact both of these are plausible says a lot about how weird the world really is
@SuricrasiaOnline When I ask Wolfram Alpha questions, I *usually* end up sorry I asked. It's extremely rare that it actually ends up interpreting my question correctly, let alone giving me a useful answer.
@SuricrasiaOnline I think the only query I've gotten a good answer from WA for is "mass of moon in cheese". It gave me the nutrition facts for a ball of cheese the mass of the moon. Which is what I wanted!
@SuricrasiaOnline "dogs per cat" -> "Assuming Tigra (Marvel Comics) | Use [Cat (Red Dwarf)] or [Walter Hardy] instead"
"emoji" -> "Interpreting as: OTZ ... Input interpretation: Ralph Wien Memorial Airport"
Moin ™ @SuricrasiaOnline,
Did You expect an other answer?
Wolfram alpha, it's fits to my idea of that service.
Some nerdy, scientific.
@SuricrasiaOnline As one of my professors used to say, a computer has only one finger to count on, and it's either up or it's not.
I mean I heard digit is also a bone of the hand. I looked for digit and random and found 6 sense of digit-> https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/digit
One is finger or toe
And random has also 4 definitions as an adjektive. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/random
One is: „being or relating to a set or to an element of a set each of whose elements has equal probability of occurrence“
@SuricrasiaOnline wolfram alpha please give me two random digits
wolfram alpha: processing request…
a few days later you get a package with an index finger and a thumb neatly wrapped inside
@SuricrasiaOnline now wait for the two random digits arrive in the mail, and feel very bad for the employee.
