What the..... What word is that?


Wanna help someone?

I'm sure you've heard this Chinese proverb about helping others: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This proverb created charities like the OLPC that gives free "green colored" laptops to children of developing countries which in turn, the children who receive the laptop will learn how use a computer and help themselves get out of the mud.

But when we modify the proverb to "Give a man a WORD and you feed someone 20 grains of rice. Teach a man THE DICTIONARY and you FEED SOMEONE A THOUSAND GRAINS OF RICE" comes the charitable website is a website that promotes giving based on intellect. Answer each word 's meaning correctly and you donate 20 grains of rice to the World Food Program. Nice one, right?

So c'mon, spread the word and help! (Maybe we can help our country survive the forthcoming rice shortage... hehehe...)
