It Pays to Be a Nerd

Ladies and Gents, it's time to put your nerdiness to good use!

There's a fairly new website designed to donate food to hungry people. Basically, you go to it and see how nerdy you are by knowing/guessing the definitions of words. For each correct answer, the owners of the site donate grains of rice to the UN's World Food Programme. It keeps track of your stats and lets you know your vocab level (1-50). Try it out. I did check it out on Snopes and the story clears. Kel, you should assign this to your students!

That is an excellent time waster. I think my students wouldn't do very well, many of those were pretty hard.
