FreeRice.com just may be the coolest time wasting thing you can do on-line. Except like most other time wasting activities on-line (insert how you waste time here_) FreeRice actually accomplishes two goals. 

1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.

2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Here’s how it works >

FreeRice has a custom database containing thousands of words at varying degrees of difficulty.  It starts by giving you words at different levels of difficulty and then, based on how you do, assigns you an approximate starting level. When you get a word wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three words in a row right, you go to a harder level. Every time you get a word right you donate 10grains of rice that is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program. How cool is that. The site raises money for the rice through it’s advertisers.

Instead of (insert how you waste time here_) go to www.FreeRice.com today and do something truly productive. I got to level 23 and raised 44o grams of rice. See if you can do better,.. I hope you can.

FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com.
