Random Web Obsession of the Moment
A new site has emerged in the style of The Hunger Site and The Breast Cancer Site, but with a much more clever hook. While these sites encourage you to come and click once a day with no real reason for your going there save for your altriusm and desire to see more advertising, FreeRice.com plays a vocabulary game with you. You answer some questions and it levels you, then feeds you more words at your level and adjusts your level down and up based on what you get right and wrong. It's fun, potentially educational, and keeps me clicking long after I'd forgotten about its predecessors. I'm hovering around a 46-47 most of the time (until I miss a few and end up back at level 41). Anyway, try it. You might enjoy it as much as I do.
