It’s not very often you get to tickle your trivia bone, expand your English vocabulary and feed some people in less than fortunate nations around the world. You can do all of that with the Free Rice website.

free-rice-website-uncovered

There’s more to learn and answer questions about than just English Vocabulary. You can test your knowledge. You can test your gray matter on other topics and subjects like:

  • Art
  • Chemistry
  • English
  • Geography
  • Foreign Languages
  • and Math

It’s all here, and the more you know the more rice that the Free Rice website will deliver to those in need.

The Free Rice website keeps track of how many grains of rice are donated each day. You can also decide to keep track of how many grains of rice you contribute yourself.

The rice that’s earned and donated is distributed through the United Nations World Food Program. As you answer questions correctly, sponsor advertisements are displayed along the bottom of the page. The earnings generated by these sponsorships pay for the rice that you’re donating.

So, do something good with your time. Learn something new and feed some hungry children around the globe.

Uncover some food for others at the Free Rice website for yourself.

Uncovering Some Cold Hard Football Facts

Is it just me, or is it weird that there are so many NFL teams with either a 5-0 record or an 0-5 record. So much for the normal bell curve you’ve come to expect with sports teams.

This NFL season I’m stumbling around trying to figure out what I’m doing with four different fantasy football leagues. I’m doing fairly well in one league, and then bringing up the absolute rear with two of the other ones. I try to keep up with what’s going on with all the players, but with so many teams, I feel like I’m trying …read more

Baby Roller Skaters Living Young – Evian Commercial

At dinner tonight my wife and son were super excited to tell me about a video they watched today that had my son laughing so hard he was crying. My wife thought he was faking, but he was literally ROFL.

The video my wife originally posted on her Facebook was a remake of the video above that used Michael Jackson’s "Billie Jean" music instead. I like this one though, although there was a clip of a baby doing a little MJ dance move and moon walking.

When Websites Force You to Login to Interact

When Websites Force You to Login to Interact

My personal belief is that one of the best things about the whole social media and web 2.0 world of things is the interaction. It’s about connecting with people and interacting. It’s about sharing your thoughts without being forced to share anything else.

I was visiting a website today and wanted to leave a comment. The problem was I couldn’t leave a comment without creating an account and registering as a user for the website. I may never visit this site ever again in my life, why should I have to register and create an account just to leave a …read more

Microsoft Launches H1N1 Swine Flu Informational Website

I’m sitting here on the couch in my flannel lounge pants, t-shirt and covered in a nice warm quilt my grandmother made a long time ago. If you haven’t gotten the imagery yet, I’m not feeling good and am sick at home.

My wife is already fearful that I’ve got the swine flu, the other white virus. I personally like to call it just feeling like crap and that my head may explode at any minute.
Microsoft has setup The H1N1 Response Center website to help me confirm that idea by teaching me more about the virus and whether or not …read more

Pets in Clothes – Because You Know They Need Them

I’m not sure why it is that people like putting clothes on their pets. We’ve all seen them, tiny dogs with sweaters, cats with vests and other ridiculous apparel. Why do people do this? To me it would be like putting a fish in a wetsuit. They don’t need them!!! They have a fur coat for a reason.

You can visit the Pets in Clothes website to see more examples of these crazy people dressing up their pets.
We recently got a new pet in our house, a new shih tzu puppy named Moxie. I’m not a dog person and my kids …read more

Find That Song You Just Heard on Musipedia

What’s the most popular song on the planet? The last time I think I heard the answer to this question it was "Happy Birthday to You". Makes sense when you think about it. What do you do though when you can’t think of the name of the song you just heard.

Now you can go to the Musipedia website and figure out what that song is that you just heard. Sure, if you had a new HD radio with iTunes tagging you could figure out what that song was, but you may not have an HD radio and may not want …read more
