If you’re looking for something to pass the time, I’d like to recommend FreeRice.
Basically, you play a vocab game and ads run across the bottom off the screen. The longer you play (or: the more words you get right), the more ad revenue they generate, and the more rice they’re able to donate through United Nations! For every word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice (it was 10 grains, until yesterday). You increase your vocabulary and people who need it most get fed. Win-win!
Ryan and I were interested in how the math works out… On Monday, the website generated over 180,000,000 grains of rice. There’s about 7250 grains in one cup of rice. So Monday promised about 24,000 cups of rice. One cup of rice after it’s cooked will feed 2 to 4 people. So Monday fed 1 cup of cooked rice to between 48,000 to 96,000 people.
I think that’s worth a few minutes of your time learning vocabulary…
