Is there anyway to lose/go into negatives so you take 10 grains of rice away from them?

It's simple to sound like them, tune your guitars down a couple of steps but don't worry if it's actually IN tune or not, then just plug in and throw your guitar out the window.

Level 44.

I'm cheating.

And I don't feel bad about one bit. I just want to see how ridiculous these words get.

I don't think they're really going to count out each grain ...

I'm on 130 right now
#33
I seriously doubt they're giving out free rice grains if you can guess what a word means. I mean, do they just have tons of rice availiable to ship out but only first after some people guess a word on the internet!

I was just thinking the same. Why on earth wouldn't they juust donate it anyway?

And is someone sat there counting out exactly 10 grains of rice, and shipping them to Africa in tiny packages?

Weigh a grain of rice. Muliply it by 10. Multiply this number by how many correct answers were made on the site. Wait for them to build up and send it out in bulk. Read the About section and see what the site was made for.

I did just read the FAQ and it turns out the advertisers pay the rice...

still a bit cheap of them to not just pay for the rice, but they've got to get lots of customers first!

They want people to get on the site to pay for the rice. It's a more productive way of helping than just pulling money out of your wallet to pay for it.

Wouldn't be easier if they just gave x amount of rice instead of having a game about it?
