  • First I was thinking about wiping "turn on the lights" because this is entirely different question, but it seems that that's the only interesting part here - manipulating elactricity with the power of the mind (non-physical interaction). – Al Berko Feb 20 at 20:27

    ME: "Alexa, turn on the lights." ALEXA: "Did you mean to say -- Alexa, it's dark in here, hint hint?" – Shalom Feb 20 at 21:26
  • @Shalom That's not Alexa. Maybe "Alexandra" or "Sendra", for short ;-) – DanF Feb 20 at 21:35
