Nerd Fun

This is an amusing, challenging vocabulary test to waste some time with.
Words are neat, after all.

It's also, weirdly but happily, a mechanism for raising money for the UN to fight hunger. (Every word you identify correctly = 20 grains of rice contributed.)

I know some super-geeks who have scored as high as 50. That's way outta my league.
Shall we have a little contest, Lake Effecters?

I'll get us started: 42.

I got 46 and donated 1400 grains of rice. Problem is, I had more than that for dinner tonight.

44, but I'll tell you: at the end, I understood neither the word in question nor the answers!

also stalled at 43, but I'm not giving up. It's like my version of Las Vegas.
