Siri and the Hichhikers guide to the galaxy questionsSiri, what’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything?


This was supposed to be a joke (Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy for those of you who didn’t get it), but it turns out she actually will give you this answer. Now we’ve found a few more answers Siri give you for this question. And those are pretty cool too. Ask Siri what’s the meaning of life and this is what you get:

– Try and be nice to people. Avoid eating fat. Read a good book every now and then, get some walking in and try to live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.


Here’s another answer she’s given us:

– I can’t answer that right now, but give me some very long time to write a play in which nothing happens.


– Life: a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings. I guess that includes me.

She’s got more answers to this question. Just ask again.

– Life: The condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change, preceeding death.

Another one:

– To think about questions like this.

What is the meaning of life, Siri?

– I don’t know. But I think there’s an app for that.

  1. Devil's Advocate says:

    That’s the first part of the answer from Monty Python’s *The Meaning of Life*:

    “Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.”

  5. gogog says:

    She once said, “42” and i was like WTF?

    • Sam says:

      It’s from the Hitchhikers Guide – scientists build a supercomputer to give them the answer to the meaning of life, who spends seven and a half million years calculating the answer and when the big day arrives, tells them simply, ’42’.

      It’s a sci-fi/comedy. Don’t think the movie was all that popular, but the books had a sort of following. It’s got that dry English humor, much like Monty Python.

  6. Michael says:

  10. Fran says:

    I asked “what’s the meaning of life” she responds with “I shouldn’t tell you”

  11. Brandon says:

    The one about the long play in which nothing happens refers to “Waiting for Godot” i believe. Literally nothing happens in the play but its symbolism and odd happenings have to do with life and God. I did a research paper on it.

  12. Nessa says:

    siri what is the faster then the speed of light?

  13. Essa says:

    i asked “siri what is something you would’ent do?” she responed we were talking about you not me

  14. ccc says:

    I’m sure the dictionary would define life as …the act of being alive; to live. If there is meaning to life, then what is the meaning of no life being found any where else in the universe that we’ve studied so far? The earth is the life. It was alive long before us, and will be alive long after. It holds the meaning that won’t be revealed until the final chapter. We and all we know are just a piece in the puzzle. But each piece has meaning and is essential to the final completion of the whole picture.

  15. Jackson Short says:

  20. Kirk Bready says:

    I met a guy who had met a guy who passed on the following story…

    Descartes: I think, therefore I am.
    Grasshopper: What was your first thought?
    Descartes: A question that led to many others, all of which return to, “why”.
    Grasshopper: Is there an answer?
    Descartes: It may be implicit in your capacity to ask the question.
    Grasshopper: That would seem to be a loop.
    Descartes: It’s actually an ascending spiral. Open your mind and enjoy the ride.
