Why it’s on the list: I’ve seen this one on a few 101 in 1001 lists and thought it was definitely a worthy thing to have on mine. The website is http://www.freerice.com/ Basically there are various quizzes on there – word definitions, geography tests, maths equations etc – and for every question you get right the site sponsors – who have banner ads – donate 10 grains of rice to the UN World Food Programme. The idea is that I can help beat world hunger, if only in a very small way, and can also have fun and educate myself a little in the process.
How/when I’ll judge this task to be completed: When I have played on the site enough to have donated 1,000,000 grains of rice. I will try and save the screen when that happens – though if my compute loses its cookies at any time in the next 1001 days (highly likely) you’ll just have to take my word for it!
