I did not know that palindromes were interesting in the first place.

Two things :

1. The palindrome is workoutable from the part you wrote (...so completing it) : "A man; a plan; a canal - Panama !"

2. It makes sense, don't you think ?

That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. It is so bad it pisses me off. It makes no sense whatsoever and it doesn't even use real words. I took the first page and did a word count and came up with 679 words. Then I did a spell check and deleted any that weren't real words when I was done I did another word count and there were only 343 words left. I can make a better one in a matter of a few seconds if I'm allowed to make up words and not make sense, hell mine would at least make sense.

I do believe that I shall list some words that are not to be found in any dictionary because I'm making them up: pu, meh, tgnik, ammi, es, uac, eby, ra, noit, ci, dy, na, nid, nuof, ebott, onera, tah, tsdr, owem, ost, silll, ahsit, aht, ev, eil, eb, odi.

There you go a fifty word palindrome. better than your horrible link

I couldn't spell check the whole thing. I only did the first page according to Microsoft Word. I had to delete every mispelling by hand and I was sick and tired after that. No way I'd attempt the whole thing.

I like finding palindromes in license plates, zip codes and telephone numbers. The latter two provide amusement at work.

LA Cigar Too Tragical.

It's from a book by Tim Powers called Expiration Date. In the context of the story it actually makes sense.

I'm sure I can't figure this one out ! Perhaps, knowing something about the poster will help...ummm, no, nothing there either.

Take off the last 's' and read it backwards.
If you know Arildno it shouldn't be suprising.:wink:
