What it is:

Basically, the UN will donate ten grains of rice for every word you define correctly.

Why you should do it:

Because it goes towards a good cause. And because it's really fun.

Details:

There are sixty levels of definitions. The higher you get, the harder it is. I got to around level thirty-six. Which just means I need to improve.

So, do this. Have fun. Learn some words. Post your levels.

    I used to do this instead of homework.
    It was a relatively guilt free way to procrastinate.

    I will continue that tradition right now.

    a lot of them are really obvious just based on etymology and cognates

    like "avifauna" oh man I wonder what that could possibly be

    I'm gonna try other subjects, too! like english grammar

    "Hey, white people!

    We know how much you guys like charity. But isn't having to give your own stuff away such a pain in the bum? Yeah, it sure does suck - you have to decide between being caring and compassionate and all your really important stuff!

    Well, listen, we've solved your problem. Now you can help people without giving anything that you don't want to!

    'But, computer,' you whine, 'if everyone can give something for no cost, then how will giving anything be special?'

    Not so fast, cracker! You get to help feed the proletariat with your brain. Just by virtue of knowing words, you get to feel totally fantastic about yourself as you give third-world countries spoonfuls a day! No more do you have to decide between status symbols of materialism and mass-marketed compassion - now, you get twice the bragging rights for your time investment! Your friends will be awed as you casually mention, 'Yeah, I was giving out some rice to poor people today - it was really exhausting, but it really helped me to stop feeling so tenebrific.' Your friends will want to know how you give so much - and what tenebrific means!

    Don't worry, white people. We got your back."
