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

    As sad as it may be, that's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

    I'm gonna go cry now...

    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 one does. However, others do not

    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

    EDIT2: OHHH you said first page, gotcha ;)

    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.
