Inquiring minds use computational knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha to find answers to all sorts of questions – but sometimes those queries can be a bit strange.

The team behind the computational knowledge engine highlighted a few of these strange queries.

Watch Ocean’s Eleven As You Dive Down to the Bottom of the Pacific

If you want to dive down to the maximum depth of the Pacific Ocean and you want to watch Ocean’s 11 as you do so, then you must dive at a constant speed 282.2ft/min to watch the entire movie.

US National Debt, Pennies, the Titanic

Take the US national debt and convert it into pennies. Then take the weight of all those pennies and compare them to the weight of the Titanic. You will find out that all the pennies weigh about 8,000 times more than the Titanic.

Thanksgiving Turkey, Atom Bomb

Take the amount of Thanksgiving turkey that is eaten each year by the US population and transform it into caloric energy. Then take that value and compare it to the amount of energy produced by the 1945 Trinity atom bomb test explosion in New Mexico. The result is that the caloric energy of all the turkey is 3.5 times more than the energy produced by the atom bomb.

Mars, Jupiter, Chihuahua

People use miles or kilometers to measure distances. But what if you were to use something else as a unit of measure, like the average height of a Chihuahua. And what if you where to use this new unit to measure the distance between Mars and Jupiter?

I remind you that Wolfram Alpha shares fun facts via Twitter - @ WolframFunFacts.

Here’s one that was recently shared:
Question: How many gallons of guacamole could a Saturn V have carried to low Earth orbit?
Result: 33127.
