This estimates the number of words you know in English. The server is a bit slow, but help the researchers gather more data! They especially want respondents under the age of 15.

I'm at 30,000 (not amazing but not terrible--all that nerding out as a child helped, I'm sure), according to this. I'm curious about the accuracy of their algorithm, though, so I'm going to read more about it when I'm no longer pretending to work, or you guys could tell me if it's full of bullcrap. ;)

+Richard Munroe what I meant was that I couldn't formulate a precise definition for a lot of the words but I'm pretty sure I have the basic idea of what they mean - which is the case for a lot of the words in my vocabulary, if not most.

The google plus video plugin accelerator keeps crashing whenever I attempt to start a hangout or a video chat. I'm hoping one of the nerds on here might be able to help. I ran google-chrome in terminal, and got the following output:
