Somebody Stop Me!!!

Postby Tonyblack » Thu Sep 22, 2011 11:01 am

No, don't really stop me. :lol:

This is about a very addictive quiz website that someone recently pointed out to me called Freerice.com.

You register and then you choose a category and answer the multiple choice questions. For every question that you get right, Freerice.com donate 10 grains of rice to hungry people around the world. I have checked it out and it is a genuine website. Snopes agrees.

The whole thing is paid for by the advertisers using the site. :D

The questions get progressively harder. The English Vocabulary is fun, but I enjoyed the Flags of the World and the Chemical Symbols as well.

You can try it without registering. Give it a go. :wink:

Oh my, that is so true. IT IS ADDICTIVE!!!!
I played the English dictionary but at round 14 it started with words I don't know so I got annoyed and changed subject.
I didn't try yet the literature or paintings ones, but I sure will ! ^_^

Right now I am at 1260 grains, and still counting :lol:

3000+ and counting. But there are some very strange words in the English Vocabulary section that I had never heard of! I swear they were Americanisms. Then, at one time I thought I was reading Grecco-Roman!
:shock::lol:. I got two of them right though! :lol:
