    I wanted to enhance my vocabulary so maybe I wouldn't post anymore negative postings. One of the chat users Anika, shared with me FreeRice. This site helps WFP (World Food Programme) end world hunger. They give you questions, in which you can change the subject at any time. Each question you get right, they will donate 10 grains of rice to WFP. So I feel this is a great idea for those who want to learn and those who are in need.

    What's your opinion on this?

    EDIT: Fixed grammar mistake MattAY showed.

    If anything KRP I would share my rice with others because I wouldn't need anything to eat until a couple week later (fyi, UghRochester is a big dude) also FreeRice is a win/win situation. Wouldn't hurt to learn more and help others at the same time.

    I have my eyes on this web site for a couple of years already. I've forgotten it but thanks for reminding me about it! Now let's see who among us will make a million grain!

    I donated about 1,000 grains doing the Geography part.

    I didn't even know there was a country named Burkina Faso. All the countries in Africa and Eastern Europe killed me.

    I wonder if the bloke counting the grains has killed himself by now?

    EDIT: I challenge you all to think of 5 countries where the letters CANNOT be filled in (in capitals).

    EG - ENGLAND ... The D and A can be filled in with paint bucket.

    .....GO! YOU HAVE 0/5!

    YEMEN

    That's it.
    All the rest are ruined by one letter. Mostly A's and R's.

    Nope, 3 more. Think of a war one. Think coldness for another. And think of beaches for the other.

    lol

    Stal wins! .. rice.

    I just rocked the Italian language bit and donated 210 grains and then got bored and was more interested in a few questions:

    What kind of rice is donated? White? Brown? Long-grain? Short-grain? Sushi rice? This is critical!

    I know how the word "program" is spelled, I spelled it the way it was listed on their homepage.
