Got this in an e-mail:

8:02 PM on February 20 this year will be an historic moment in time. It
will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks or the ringing of bells,
but at that precise time, on that specific date, something will
happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never happen
again.

As the clock ticks over from 8:01 pm on Wednesday, February 20, time
will, for sixty seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002,
2002, or to be more precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.

The only other time the clock has been "palindromic" (i.e., read
backwards
it looks the same as read forwards) was at 10:01 AM on January 10, 1001,
and it will never happen again.

So, enjoy the moment!

And, as a special treat, here is my favorite "palindrome":
"A man, a plan, a canal, Panama."
The letters line up the same forwards and backwards.

I missed it Sad

found out just a few minutes before I saw it on the boards. What ever!
No matter what I choose, no matter how much I buy, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay. Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words, "with great parents comes great reliability." This is my gift; their purse. Who am I? I'm Dobberman.
