I saw this site a few weeks back. http://freerice.com/index.php

Its a project affiliated to United Nations. All you do is pick the right synonym to a given word and you have just donated 20 grains of rice to a needy person in less than 5 seconds.

I know this site is true to their word because i even saw the advertisement in the newspaper. So let us GMCers actually do something about world hunger. All you have to do is spend sometime and play the game. And dont forget to link this thread in your signature (people will notice it). Together we really can make a difference.

Post your scores in this thread too.

I played this game for about 5 minutes as im filling this thread and i have already donated 400 grains of rice (all it took is 5 minutes of clicking away and caring).

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I am doing better than all of you guys, because I cheat. Those are for the most part pretty obscure words you have to come up.

most useful word I have seen is dreck. i can use that for a lot of things. I also know what that means in Slovenian.

if you are ever interested in learning words that are great words, but not the type like in this rice thing, that nobody uses except really weird professors, get the WordSmart book by princeton review. especially volume 1. Great words that people tend to know the meanings of, but don't know well enough to speak them for the most part. Or that they have the wrong idea of what they mean. Such as peruse.

Or visionary. Almost everyone uses that wrong. Especially in the media. It is not really a compliment, but they think it is.

Unfortunately these sort of things can't solve world hunger sad.gif It will take a lot more and it starts with World Debt. Hopefully one day everybody in the world can have the same standard of life.
