An Edifying Time-Waster

Okay. We all do it. We all waste time doing things we shouldn't be doing. Whether it's playing solitaire or doing MySpace survey's or answering some questions on some silly Facebook quiz, we all flush our time down the toilet on meaningless activities that help us decompress or distract ourselves from reality for a spell.

Well now you will have a way to waste time AND justify it! A long-time friend named Michelle (Holla!) told me about a cool web site called FreeRice.com. It is a vocabulary quiz. For every word you define correctly, 20 grains of rice are donated through the U.N. to help fight world hunger. The revenue to purchase the rice is raised via ad revenue on each click-through when you play the quiz.

How ingenious!

So far, I'm at level 36. The highest level I got to was 40. Feel free to post about how much smarter you are than me when you surpass me.
