Or rather, it's absolutely awesome.
First, www.freerice.com is awesome in that it makes you less guilty for procrastinating with online video games; you're helping the UN to end world hunger with each correct answer. (I've "bought" 13690 grains of rice. Woot.)
Second, it shows you awesome (and counterintutive?) words like the following:
Pulchritude == physical beauty
Fuliginous == sooty
Panjandrum == self-important dignitary
Gallimaufry == hodge-podge
and many others.
Also, quote of the day: "For real, though. Who threw that wedding at me?" - Ayn.
