    I had to get out the dictionary

    Palindrome - A word or number that reads the same forwards and backwards.

    PS Thanks for the song<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon6.gif>

    mousejockey:

    it's even better:

    20:02 20/02/2002


    the next one is:

    21:12 21/12/2112


    then, there won't be one of this type again [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    make most of this one [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    "Here it is 20-2-2002

    Sorry, really hate to rain on the parade, but that's NOT the same forwards and backwards!

    For easy comparison:

    2022002 Forwards
    2002202 Backwards

    Now if you write it 20-02-2002 that's different...

    (Yeah, I know, it's nitpicking... )

    As you can see on each post, the date is (or was) actually 02-20-2002 [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    02202002 Forwards
    20020220 Backwards

    Hmm, What do you call that?

    yes, but us Aussies have our date in the dd/mm/yy or dd/mm/yyyy format, making MJ's statements correct (to me anyway [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img])
    Believe it or not, there are other formats other than that of the US.

    The U.S. military also does dd/mm/yy format.

    So Americans aren't completely geocentric. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    the first palindrome i ever heard was

    <FONT COLOR="#336699">a man a plan a canal panama</FONT>

    spell it backwards

    heres a couple more
    <FONT COLOR="#336699">
    never odd or even

    Dr. Awkward

    yo banana boy</FONT>

    probably the most famous palindrome is <FONT COLOR="#336699">madam im adam</FONT>

    we missed a couple of palindromic days last year <FONT COLOR="#336699">10/11/01</FONT> and <FONT COLOR="#336699">10/22/01</FONT>

    there are several everyday words that are palindromes including <FONT COLOR="#336699">
    mom
    dad
    radar
    kayak
    rotator
    stats</FONT>
    and <FONT COLOR="#336699">noon</FONT>


    heres one more > <FONT COLOR="#336699">lol</FONT> [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I come from the UK and we have the same date format, but I kinda get used to using different date formats especially as I deal with Taiwan & China a lot.

    If you want an alternative, the year in China is 91 of the Ming-Guo dynasty (not sure if that is spelt correctly), so we only need to wait another 8 years for another Palindrome date.

    That's interesting Planet wide exodus...
    If the military use dd/mm/yy,
    Why does the rest of the USA use mm/dd?
