Now the amount of rice that's being donated is gigantic right?

Well I was curious to find out just how gigantic that amount is, so I started searching the web to see how many grains of rice (approximately) are in a dish, and in a ton... but came up with nothing.

So does anyone have an idea, or better yet, concrete facts about the amount of grains of rice per dish and per ton?

From the day the website started in October 7, 2007 (my birthday ), they managed to build up 7,178,114,130 grains of rice.

that's enough for a small side salad. Maybe two, if it's mixed with feta and sultanas.

Apparently the mass of a grain of rice is around 0.019g.

I'm sure you can work the rest out for yourself.

Figured it out (THANK YOU GOOGLE).
I figured it out to be 300129352.1934684 pounds of rice donated so far.
I think a hearty bowl of rice weighs around one pound, so that number is also pretty close to the number of "bowls".

I think www.freeporkfriedrice.com is much better.


I hope that's not a real site.


EDIT: It used to be 10 grains per word.

He means that 20 doesn't go into 7,178,114,130 evenly

^Error margin?
I dunno. I know that they had it going for 10 grains a word, but switched to 20. They still counted the grains donated under the 10 grains a word rule when they switched over to 20.
