Free Rice

Click on the above link and take the Vocab Test....each correct answer equals 20 grains of rice for someone. This is a great way to help stop hunger guys!!! It's something we can do while doing what we always do and as well you get to work on your vocabulary (So you can sound as smart as you are..
)

Record the amount of rice achieved here, as well as your 'Best Vocab' level.

I knew I could count on you, Givenmay!!

Okay everyone...500 BTS points for those of you who can provide a screenshot that proves you donated at least 1000 grains of rice.

Come on everyone! This works because the Ad gets a 'hit' everytime the page refreshes! This is a fun way to spam for a great cause!!!

Edit to Add: At 1620 grains of rice, I had a Best Level of 41...no dictionary....

Hit "Control and PrtScrn at the same time".

Open "Paint", usually under "Accessories" in the Program listing of your OS.

Then click on "Paste" under the heading "Edit".

That should do it...


Morning, by the way!!

Yup...I'm still waking up, actually!

Up to Level 40 right now....only 300 grains of rice, though.

I tend to just keep the web page open all day and get 100-200 grains every once in a while while I am working...

Looks like the pic is too big!
I'll just keep it on here though, because it has the word stupidity, on it!

Right on Givenmay!

So what is acutance....I would guess wittiness, based on the suffix "ance"....


By the way...congrats on the Level 55....

Well, that was a tricky one...acutance = film resolution!

Hmmm...I did have a multiple question with Shock in it!

Nice. This would be great for an entire school to do or something too for vocabulary.

Hey, this is fun. I'm up to 240 grains so far. It's nice to do something fun that will actually make a difference.

Still playing.........

Yea, I did it! 1000 grains and 500 pts! And I now have two favorite words:

FIRKIN and KWACHA (man, I just love the way those sound)





Great site, MemoryShock. I'll be sure to pass it on to others.

Congratulations!!

You should have your points...


Now...based on your screenshot, can I now say that every quadrinnium America gets a new puppet in the White House?

Let's not forget to use the new vocabulary words in our posts!!

An extra five hundred points to the first member who makes me visit a dictionary! (I promise to be honest about it...
)

Ok, what does cloy mean?

cloy Audio Help /klɔɪ/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kloi] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–verb (used with object) 1. to weary by an excess of food, sweetness, pleasure, etc.; surfeit; satiate.
–verb (used without object)

Dictionary.com

Okay...I should have either thought that one through or stipulated that it was a requisite aspect of the interaction to provide a contextual application of the word in a grammatically sound example....

Or asked that any attempts to stump me be used in a sentence...


But Fair's Fair....

Sorry, I should've used it in a sentence or something, you're right...
