One Cool (and Free) Way to Fight Hunger

November 15, 2007

Check out Free Rice. They’ve come up with a very creative way to get food to the poor. Basically, they give you a glorified vocab test (don’t let that scare you away), and for every correct answer you get, they give 10 grains of rice to be distributed by the U.N. They raise the money for the rice through the advertising on the site. The first time I went on, I played long enough to raise 3,000 grains. As of yesterday, the site has raised almost 1.9 billion grains of rice.

Mute Math – Typical

An amazing music video.  Filmed completely backwards.  The song’s not bad either.

We Want Your Soul

A neat little music video that challenged me. So many things call for our attention in this life. What’s really important?

Tony vs. Paul

I really like stop-motion when it’s done well.  This is one of the better ones I’ve seen on YouTube.

Unicycle Dance

Who knew that unicycling was a sport?  This is pretty amazing.  I tried to ride a unicycle this past summer and couldn’t get it to balance for the life of me.
