Time in a bottle……

posted in: Palindromes, Trivia | 0

A friend sent me this notice by email this week with the subject line: “not worth the time, but still interesting”

On Wednesday of next week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00in the morning, the time and date will be:
01:02:03 04/05/06
That won’t ever happen again.
You may now return to your (normal ?) life.

Who, I ask, has the time to sit around and think of this stuff? It’s like the list of English palindrones I had gathered a few years ago. Palindrones are phrases which are spelled the same going backward or forwards. Here are a few for your entertainment and amusement. Some of these are just too good to be coincidence! (Wonder why they didn’t name them palinilap or spalinilaps or palindronesenordnilap?)
