Are You Good with Words?

You can donate rice.

It’s actually hard. I only got 43 out of my first 50.



  1. You have now donated
    3000 grains of rice.

    Hmm, maybe giving to Feed the Children would be more efficient…

    I did have problems with some of the word associations.

    Things like:
    disencumber = extricate
    and the dark nature of the following:
    *disinter = dig up from a grave*

    *inhumation means:
    2. safecracker
    3. dog
    4. pincerlike claw
    X. burial

    *sepulchral means:
    2. unbalanced
    3. sanitary
    4. crafty
    X. funereal

    How do you know that out of 43 you got 50? I only saw best level and vocab level… did you count the first 50?

    Best level 39.

    Considering I never took the SATs and was also playing Texas Hold’em at the time, I think that’s pretty good :o)

  2. Lol…

    Strike that, reverse it. :o)

    I love working every weekend, don’t you?

  3. I got level 43 also… just when the computer reset. As with Andrew, mine just showed the highest level attained. I’m tempted to send the link to Cynthia because I feel the need to be *humbled* by my paltry 43.
