the more words you guess right, the more rice the advertisers will donate to feed hungry people all over the world. improve your vocabulary and end world hunger all at once! i found this courtesy of a softer world, which is one of my favorite internet comics. read the archives; there's some great stuff in there.

That's a touch addictive, with the filling bowls of rice. I expected a new symbol at 500, but I guess they're a strictly powers-of-ten organization?

not sure; i wondered about that myself. you've done rather better than i have. i'm pleased by how well i can guess the meaning of previously unknown words, though, by figuring out their root word.

I played a bit at lunch. There's a symbol at 1000 grains. Its placement suggests another at 10000.

To never leave your chair will only work if someone brings rice to you</>.

ah, but nikka will bring me rice and hot tea; i am her own personal monk.

I believe nikka loves you enough to not bring you rice after a certain point.
