iPhone user or not, you’ve probably heard of Siri. The voice-activated virtual ‘assistant’ has been a staple of the Apple universe since 2010, and she grows more and more human-like with every passing year. “In what route, ” you might ask. Well, she was originally a simple source of information, presented in a professional, to-the-point manner. But as she has evolved with us, she has taken on some of our traits, most notably humor and sarcasm.
People have been asking Siri the dumbest questions since the very beginnings, and so she has learned how to give equally dumb, and often extremely sassy, replies. Don’t believe us? Well, we here at Bored Panda have put together a list of funny questions to ask Siri if you want to get a hilariously witty comeback. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and be sure to give them a try!
# 1 A Conversation With Siri
While Siri was born on the iphone, she is now employed across a variety of Apple platforms including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Siri can now speak 20 speeches: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish.
Despite this impressive collection of languages, Siri has had conflicts with certain accents however. The poor Scots had a hilarious day trying to induce themselves understood to the virtual deputy, although that only means that she’s just like the rest of us. Dae ye ken whit a mean?

Have you fully explored the scope of wonders that Siri is capable of? Some of them might surprised to see me. Here are a few examples of Siri’s genius, with thanks to Lifehack.
Did you know that Siri can post to social media accounts? Make your day easier by simply saying “Post to[ Twitter or Facebook ]. Siri then asks what you’d like to say. Dictate your post, then send when Siri corroborates your message. Keeping in touch has never been easier!
Siri is also a genius at solving math questions, from the simple calculations to the most complex problems. Ask Siri to solve problems by saying “What is[ math question] ”. You can also use this feature to help calculate a tip-off in no time at all. Not merely will Siri tell you how much to tip, but also the total cost of your bill with the tip added.

Did you know that Siri can define reminders based on where you are? Make sure Location Service are enabled for Reminders under Settings> Privacy> Location Service. Then, add the locations you need to your contacts. Tell Siri “xxx is my home”. Repeat for run, school or any other frequent location. Now Siri can do reminders for when “youre moving” or arrive somewhere. For example, tell Siri “Remind me to call Donna when I leave work” to have the reminder come off when you’re done with your day.
Another amazing function that Siri has is helping to save time when looking for an email. For example, ask Siri to “Find email with my new schedule”, or “Find email with Friday’s Documents in the subject line”. You can also use this command to have Siri find emails from certain contacts. Siri can search Twitter too, just ask “Search Twitter for[ topic or person] ”. Siri immediately responds with a list of relevant tweets, from users across the site.

# 7 Playing With Siri Can Sometimes Be Dangerous
Siri connects to Yelp when you want to find out about a restaurant, however she can also access the online restaurant-reservation service OpenTable. This allows you to book reservations directly. You can tell Siri to make a reservation at a eatery by saying “Make a reservation for tonight at 7pm at xxx.” Siri will tell you what’s available on the restaurant’s OpenTable page. Your location will help to find which restaurant you’re looking for, so Siri will look for matches in the area where you are currently based.

# 9 What The Hell Siri
Finally, another interesting thing that Siri can do is to give information on the planes fly above you right now. Just ask “what flights are above me right now” to see a complete list of planes, the airlines and aircraft kinds. Siri even gives the flight numbers too, so you can find out exactly where these flights are headed! Not exactly a critical function for everyday life, but fun to impress kids or any aviation fanatics you might know.
