free rice December 4, 2007

Posted by Bradley in : Uncategorized , trackback

I just donated 500 grains of rice at free rice. Yesterday 252,053,160 grains were donated in total, and 6,025,068,330 grains have been donated since the game was started in October.

It’s not the most fun word game ever. The FAQ describes the benefits you get from “playing”:

Learning new vocabulary has tremendous benefits. It can help you:
* Formulate your ideas better
* Write better papers, emails and business letters
* Speak more precisely and persuasively
* Comprehend more of what you read
* Read faster because you comprehend better
* Get better grades in high school, college and graduate school
* Score higher on tests like the SAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT
* Perform better at job interviews and conferences
* Sell yourself, your services, and your products better
* Be more effective and successful at your job
After you have done FreeRice for a couple of days, you may notice an odd phenomenon. Words that you have never consciously used before will begin to pop into your head while you are speaking or writing. You will feel yourself using and knowing more words.
