Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

Words don’t suck

Posted by mesablue on November 27, 2007

I’m stealing this from Nice Deb because it’s a good idea and I’m now hooked on the thing and can’t stop.

FreeRice is a vocabulary game that donates, yup you got it — rice, through the United Nations World Food Program. For each word that you get right ten grains are donated. It can add up quickly. I’m into the tens of thousands now. Told ya I was hooked.

Now, if they would just come up with GrammarRice — I could get some real learnin’.

The rice is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). The World Food Program is the world’s largest food aid agency, working with over 1,000 other organizations in over 75 countries. In addition to providing food, the World Food Program helps hungry people to become self-reliant so that they escape hunger for good. Wherever possible, the World Food Program buys food locally to support local farmers and the local economy. We encourage you to visit the United Nations World Food Program to learn more about their successful approach to ending hunger.

I’m stuck on level 45 and can’t get past it. Get over there and see if you can beat me.

    GrammarRice…what a nightmare. No thanks.

    Good luck, I can’t get much over 45, either.

  2. I got 47 after about 10 minutes.

    It really is engrossing!

    Show off.

  4. Wow! Such animosity from someone so nice!

    Philology is my deal. I’m not exactly proud of it.

    :o)

    I’m up to 47, and I just got “kwashiorkor.” That’s just cheating.

    Which, it turns out, means protein malnutrition. Down to 46.

    It’s an interesting mixture of very difficult and ridiculously difficult. I made it to level 50 and then got tripped up- no Latin root! Arrgh.
