Date palindromes

One of the great things about blogging is when I have an idea which I like but which none of my friends, or even my kids, seems to care about, there's always a blog ready for me....

The date on Saturday was zero one zero two two zero one zero. 01 02 2010!

I think that counts as a date palindrome. Don't you?

PS. Wikipedia says: A palindrome is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction (the adjustment of punctuation and spaces between words is generally permitted).

Wikipedia describes several types of palindromes. More quotes...


The most familiar palindromes, in English at least, are character-by-character: the written characters read the same backwards as forwards. Palindromic words exist, for example civic, radar, level, rotator, rotor, kayak, reviver, racecar, and redder.


Palindromes often consist of a phrase or sentence ("Go hang a salami I'm a lasagna hog.", "Was it a rat I saw?", "Step on no pets", "Sit on a potato pan, Otis", "Lisa Bonet ate no basil", "Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas", "A Man A Plan A Canal Panama", "I roamed under it as a tired nude Maori," or the exclamation "Dammit, I'm mad!"). Punctuation, capitalization, and spacing are usually ignored, although some (such as "Rats live on no evil star") include the spacing.
