Boredom for a cause!

Hello there, fellow sesquippedaliophiles! Or warm-hearted peoples of ye olde f-list! Are you mind-numbingly bored? Do you need to broaden your vocabulary? If so, might I suggest a way for you to waste some time for a good cause?



Alyssa and I just donated 10,260 grains of rice, and we worked our way up to Vocab Level 44. Where do you weigh in?

I made it to 48 the other day... but I think it was just freak luck. Some of these words are hard.

I think this really trivializes poverty. If they have rice, GIVE IT. Not on a stupid condition of online vocabulary tests.

Hey there, Scrooge
I see where you're coming from... but I maintain that you're just upset because you didn't swallow a dictionary like the rest of us. ;)

Well, so far I've gotten to 5,000 grains of rice. At one point I had been at level 46, but right now it's back to 44. Also, a fabulous waste of time.

This is really, really addicting. I don't know if I should love you or hate you for getting me started. I've now given over 20,000 grains of rice, and reached level 48 a couple times, although that has always quickly dropped back down.

Can you even imagine what would happen if you and I teamed up to tackle it? Pandemonium, I tell you!
