    ....yes, once I looked up palindrome 

    Apart from the fact you guys write the date funny,how is 11-7-2017 the same as 19-7-2017..?????>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<.I do now know what a palindrome is,but do not get the date part..


     



     







    1. a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backwards as forwards, e.g. madam or nurses run.

    In the USA we write the dates as 7-11-17 July 11th 2017! This would be 7-11-17, and backward it would be 7-11-17, Sorry to confuse you!:)

    Hey there Clu. The USA changed the original way as it was written. As Roy always says, " The Americans Bast****ed it. I personally think the way the USA writes the month before the day of the month seems less confusing. But the USA chose to switch it.

    @ Clue,first of all,CB link shows the American way is in the minority within the world,,my view is,day comes first because it changes daily,,month next because it changes monthly,and the year changes yearly,,most things start at the bottom and goes up from there,,nothing starts at the top and comes down,,you ever tried coming down a ladder before going up it,,the only thing i know where you do not start at the bottom,is learning to swim..:):):)..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    terry, I agree with you that it can't be the same b/c the 11 and the 19 are two different numbers.
