    A simple Internet word game has generated 1,072,025,720 grains of rice for the hungry since it first launched on October 7th, through November 9th. It's easy: each correct word is worth 10 grains of rice. What's the catch? There isn't a catch, for those of us playing, except perhaps some of your time --- and a few ads (click above image to enlarge).

    It's great to see this old post rise to the top again. I'm sure it's because of the stories over food riots in places in Haiti, as well as the limits placed on rice sales at Costco and Sam's Club. Keep on playing!
