    Free Rice! Is your vocabulary up to scratch?

    Sorry if I can't post links (it's a UN-sponsored charity!) But the following is worth a look:

    www.freerice.com

    A handy way to provide some extra support for those in need, without having to open your wallet :laugh: I managed to donate c. 10,000 grains today, but couldn't beat a score of Lvl 47...

    At first glance I thought Rice had been put in jail.

    "You have now donated
    500 grains of rice."

    according to a quick google search the avg weight of a grain of rice is 28 milligrams. So my 500 grains represents almost 1/2 an oz.

    VOCAB LEVEL: 42
    YOUR BEST LEVEL: 42

    Every bit counts - I managed a whole 10 Oz myself :shocked: Also seen a few thousand grains accumulated in the ETF OT :thumbsup: Not a big difference, but hey - remember how much rice expands when it's cooked - even a few meals from the Forums are worth the effort..

    2 minutes, Level 45, have not missed one yet and only 420 grains of rice so far but I'm liking this.
    1600 Grains - Up to level 46 now, getting past 45 took a few minutes

    Got to 42 and was bored. (and frustrated)

    So many of those words I have never heard. The rest I've only seen in computer games. :laugh:

    Re: Free Rice! Is your vocabulary up to scratch?

    I am playing, and have so far missed transubstantiate 4 times in the past 2 minutes. I keep answering "To search for", and am amazed every time it is wrong. I'm gonna blame it on the hour.


    Later:
    That's 5000 grains of rice, and it only took me about 20 minutes. I feel like I've done something now, and that's good.

    Oh, and at level 42 they threw me a curveball. How am I to know what a quag is?

    "Yes.. I'll donate to your cause. But you must do something for me...

    Dance, monkey! Dance!" (or "take a vocab test", "wash cars", "run a race", "jump rope", ect.)

    2000 grains, level 48- blech, that's less rewarding than just sending them money. I'm done now.
