"Ok, Google, how big is the Grand Canyon?"
"Grand Canyon National Park is 1,902 square miles."
"I ASKED ABOUT THE CANYON NOT THE NATIONAL PARK YOU FUCKING BITCH!"
I love that Google voice assistant commercial where the voice assistant gives the wrong answer. YouTube loves playing it for me*.
Cue Blakeyrat's Law

Reflecting back to the time I tried to "Ask Jeeves" what the quasi-baroque piece of music in the De Beer's diamond commercial was called. ("Palladio" by Karl Jenkins, to save you the Google.)
Jeeves kept wanting to know if I'd like a list of places to buy beer in Delaware.
But however will I know all of your wisdom, Sir Blakeyrat of Ranting?
They've decided to add an actual menu item for it now, but for a while the official, supported way to cache maps locally on Google maps for Android was to activate the voice search and say "OK maps". Super Google discoverability there.
I did some experimenting and you could also cache your maps by typing OK maps
Sadly, asking Cortana the same question also gives the area of the national park.
You can ask "how long is the grand canyon", and while she doesn't give a direct answer, the first result is the wiki page with the length in the description (277 miles/446km)
Still says the wrong thing!
Although, per @Spencer if you ask it how long the grand canyon is, you get a better result. Pedantics amiright?
