Time Waster of the day: freerice.com
I can't believe I never heard of this before. FreeRice.com is an insidious time-suck: it provides multiple-choice answers to vocabulary definitions and each time you get one right it "donates 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program."
Favorite words I learned this morning:
Fulgurous: dazzling: amazingly impressive; suggestive of the flashing of lightning.
Ecdysiast: a stripper.
I thought it was cool that a supercilium is an eyebrow. That must be where supercilious comes from! Heh.
Word I kept not getting right even when it asked me again:
Levigate: grind into powder
I thought I had a good vocabulary but I can hardly squeak my way up to level 50 (of 60). I seem to be mainly stuck on level 47.
