[[http://www.wolframalpha.com Wolfram Alpha]] is a "computational knowledge engine", which in LaymansTerms means it's a computer you ask things and it tells you.

Yes, [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy it knows the answer]].

No, it is (probably) not run by [[Series/{{Angel}} demonic lawyers.]]

! Provides examples of:
* AGodAmI: As evidenced [[http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=are+you+God here]].
* EasterEgg[=/=]TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If it is a well-known question from pop culture, it's probably programmed into Wolfram Alpha.
** The aforementioned [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy answer]].
** What does [[Film/PulpFiction Marcellus Wallace]] look like?
** [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail African or European swallow?]]
* HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure: Wolfram Alpha's designed to give units such as these for any answer involving measurements. It doesn't always seem to get the part where such units are supposed to be "well known", though, instead doing things like comparing lengths of time to equinox procession periods.
* LogicBomb: Put in "x iff !x" (x is true if and only if x is false) and it throws out stock numbers for IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances), because that is better than the alternative.
