Happy Palindrome Day!

It was brought to my attention recently (TWICE in the last 10 minutes!) that today is a Palindrome Day, meaning the numbers are read the same backwards, as they are forward.

01 02 2010 <===>0102 20 10
For a little refresher lesson a palindrome is a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., reading the same backward as forward (dictionary.com). For example:
  • Lived on Decaf; faced no Devil.
  • Dammit, I'm mad!
  • As I pee, sir, I see Pisa!
  • Lonely Tylenol.
  • Was it a car or a cat I saw?

There are only 12 palindrome dates in this century. The last one was October 2, 2001 (10 02 2001) and the one before that was August 31, 1380 (08 31 1380)! The next palindrome day will be November 2, 2011 (11 02 2011).

Interesting, no? Do you know any fun palindromes?

  1. 01/11/10 - this would only be in the USA since European dates are done differently.

    Weird Al has a video on YouTube where the whole song is palindromes.
