Test your vocabulary and feed the world at the same time!!!

So, this website is totally rad.... If you are looking for a way to:
#1 entertain yourself
#2 make your English teacher happy by practicing really hard vocabulary words
#3 save the world!
then go to this site:
http://www.freerice.com/index.php and have at it. This website claims to donate 10 grains of rice through the United Nations for each question you answer correctly. I am up to 150 grains of rice donated and I haven't missed a word yet. Beat that!
