... at least in the US, where the date is 01 02 2010.

As for the rest of you folks who put the day-of-month first... you'll just have to wait until 01 February to celebrate.

One would think that as more and more people sort files on their computers, that totally logical year-month-date style would become the norm. One would think, but one is often disappointed. Norm is rather stubborn.

Why isn't 'palindrome' spelled the same way backwards?

Weird Al Yankovic at his best, featuring palindromes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nej4xJe4Tdg).

He was spoofing this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgC77nc22ec).

John Agee wrote three books of palindromes, titled "Go Hang a Salami, I'm a Lasagna Hog!", "Sit on a Potato Pan, Otis" and "So Many Dynamos". They were all illustrated with cartoons. One of my favorites showed a riot in a tropical town, with people all throwing fruit at each other. A man steps out of a hotel and the doorman restrains him, saying, "No, sir, away! A papaya war is on!" Another shows Vikings rampaging down the main street of Las Vegas. One of them stops to explain to a little boy, "Son, I sack casinos."

Kind of depends. Adam wouldn't have said it. He would've said something in Hebrew, probably. ;)

I knew it as:

Madam, in Eden, I'm Adam

Anyone know or remember the alleged palindrome in Monty Python's immortal "Dead Parrot" sketch?

Notlob was the palindrome of Bolton!

That's not really a "palindrome", is it? Palindromes read the same way from right to left as left to right, they're not just "reversed normal words".

There's the term "semordnilap" for a word that changes its meaning whem reversed. E.g., live vs evil.

List the two words together . . . palindrome semordnilap . . . and you have a palindromic phrase!

Thanks DonM435,

I'll add that to my Scrabble repertoire....and be prepared to be challenged.

Another word mystery....why isn't 'phonetic' spelled like it sounds?
