    Boost your vocabulary and feed the hungry

    All for free. This is a fun site and the difficulty of words adjusts to your vocabulary level. I starting hitting my natural ceiling around level 32. I've never been much of a wordsmith.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I pretty much peeked at 40.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I got several right at the 41 level but missed a few there too.

    I got up to 41 and then slipped back down.

    I teamed up with my teenage daughter and we made it to 46, before slipping.
    Knowing other languages helps.

    I got to 46 (and 310 grains of rice) and stopped.

    Like oneupper, many of the words I didn't really know. But breaking them down and then looking at the potential answers, I figured out many of them.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    Ditto. (That means "me too" - 10 more grains of rice.)
