I learnt something new: sesquipedalian = using long words.

Oh, my... me thinks I need to open a dictionary. I donated 300 grains of rice, though. :) What a fun site, says the bookworm.

What an interesting site. I'm going to send it where it should get maximum traffic.

Got up to 540 before funking out. It's been around for years, but still a great idea. Thanks for the reminder.

Awesome sight! I can learn and have fun simultaneously. I believe a friend once referred to this phenomenom as edutainment...don't care much for the term, but it is appropriate.
