Cool Web Site to End World Hunger

One of my co-workers just turned me on to, a great game she plays when she's idle on the job or needs a little sharpening of her cognitive processing.

On Free Rice, you earn "points" of rice grains for every vocabulary word you correctly define, and the rice is then donated to the UN World Food Program.

The site's creator says playing the game will help you:

Formulate your ideas better
Write better papers, emails and business letters
Speak more precisely and persuasively
Comprehend more of what you read
Read faster because you comprehend better
Get better grades in high school, college and graduate school
Score higher on tests like the SAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT
Perform better at job interviews and conferences
Sell yourself, your services, and your products better
Be more effective and successful at your job.

Big claims, but hey, it's a neat concept and a cool charity.
