Increase Vocabulary-Fight Hunger

A student in the school where I teach told us about a terrific website that is providing free rice to fight world hunger while helping people increase their English vocabulary. This is completely legitimate, requires no login or any other form of identification, and provides a challenging and fun way to increase one's knowledge of words. As poets and lovers of the English language, I think most emulers here will enjoy this site while they help to ease the suffering of people here in the US, and around the world.

Here is a link to the site:

This was fun. I did pretty well until I got to "lobscouse" and "oppugn".

Here's a link which might come in handy for anyone who wants to check the accuracy of the definitions: [www.onelook.com] />

Great fun until you get into the fifties: "I need to go back to school..."
