Want to do something about global hunger? Don't want to get up from your computer screen? Know a lot about words? Dumb as a post and know little about words but willing to sit there for a long time? Go to FreeRice and play the game that lets your knowledge of vocabulary (or that tenacity of yours) feed the hungry. For every one you get right, 20 grains of rice go to the UN's World Food Program courtesy of your big brain and the site's advertisers. Read more about the game and its origins in this article from USA Today. Bookmark FreeRice, go in every so often, spend ten minutes, and all of those grains of rice will add up fast. Then come and lie about your scores.
