Free Rice

so, we all spend time on the computer right? sometimes doing things that really aren't productive. well, guess what i found today while blog-hopping? freerice.com! it gives you a word and 4 choices of definitions. if you get it right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the united nations world food program! they just started on october 7th and have already donated 232,745,430 grains of rice! that can really do some good! so, next time you feel like blowing some time and learning some new words (palliate=make less severe) go to freerice.com! seriously... go right now.

That's actually kinda fun. I donated 1000 grains of rice. Anyone want to count that for me and tell me the equivalent? 1 cup of rice? 3/4 cup of rice? Who knows???
