Ask Siri This Question If You Want Her To Ruin Your Day

“You are sad that you have no friends.” :(

There is always something inherently lonely about virtual reality. Think back on the long, spiralling, inherently pointless conversations you used to have with AOL Chat Bots like SmarterChild. Hours (in my case) of time that could have been spent talking to an actual person, having an actual conversation. It turns out there's a little easter egg in Siri's programming that lets her articulate just how sad and lonely you are for talking to her in the first place, especially when you ask dumb questions. All you have to do is ask, "Siri, what is zero divided by zero?" And she lets the shade fly: "Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly amongst zero friends? See, it doesn't make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are zero cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends." Try it for yourself. :(
