It was shaping up to be a productive Monday. Then we found FreeRice.

FreeRice is a website with two goals: to improve your vocabulary and feed the hungry. You go to FreeRice.com, you play an addictive vocabulary game, and for every word you get right, FreeRice donates 10 grains of rice through the United Nations World Food Program.

The rice is paid for by the unobtrusive sponsor ads that rotate during the game.

A "vocabulary game" would be easy to phone in, but this one is good. It adapts to your performance (it's like the GRE in that respect but a lot more fun), so you're always being tested at your limits.

Feed the hungry and learn what "isinglass" and "veld" mean: FreeRice.com.
