Thanks for the site! I get to learn while helping others... makes them feel good, and it makes me feel good as well. I'll try to play this instead of other computer games so that they'll be happy come Christmas. :XD

Nice... although I wonder if it's really your English vocabulary you're improving, since a good chunk of the "high-level" words are plain French. :p

I got a 45 without a dictionary. More importantly, in the process I realized there be many a word I be in need of learnin'...

it froze when I hit 1000...oh well, I did my part for the day!

So many of those words I've never heard of, but recognize the root and got the word correct. They sound like made-up mishmashes of the words I do know and some funky ending

Like "Pudency". The correct answer was "modesty." I chose that because it sounds like "prudent." Yet it sounds fake and made up because it's so close but it's not the word! A lot of these must be old english or something.

Just to give an idea as to how many grains would be in a cup?

according to WikiAnswers, roughly 7,200 grains.

at least now you can visually measure how well you are doing. :D


Source:
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_grains_of_rice_are_in_one_cup

WikiAnswers said:
Question: How many grains of rice are in one cup?

Answer: Approximately 7,200 grains of rice are in a cup.

Explanation: A grain of rice weighs between 20 and 30 mg. A cup of rice weighs about 7 oz or about 217724mg.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_does_a_grain_of_rice_weigh
http://www.usarice.com/consumer/prep.html


Note: There's a game on the Internet that donates money for rice to help with world hunger. Every time you answer a vocabulary question correctly, the site donates 20 grains of rice. If you could answer 12 questions correctly every minute you play, you'd only have to play about 30 minutes to earn a cup of rice. http://www.freerice.com

My best was 43 with dictionary (1st 2 qns) then i dropped all the way to 9 then back up to abt 27... I gave up after getting 10020 grains.. At 10000, it says sth like 'That's impressive'... As soon as i got 5-6 corrects, 2 wrongs and 2 lv down... but well it's juz a game and is for a good cause..maybe i'll try to improve =)
