So, before I left for Iraq, I found a great new time wasting website, www.freerice.com.
Here's the deal: you answer vocabulary questions and for every correct answer, you donate 10 grains of rice to help feed the riceless.
I know 10 doesn't sound like much, but the site also tracks your vocab level (from 1 to 50), so you can compete against yourself to see how much you know. For me, this means, I can play for hours trying to get my score up to 50.
I haven't yet. So far, I top out at 47. In all honesty, I average in the 40-42 range most of the time.
It's pretty addicting. You need to answer three right to move up a level, but each wrong answer pushes you back a level. It's a lot of fun and you can rack up a lot of rice.
Even if it is vocabulary.
