Imagine if we read English from right to left. “This sentence would look like” ekil kool dlouw ecnetnes sihT.
That’s crazy right? I mean, ?thgir yzarc s’tahT
You bored? I mean, ?derob uoY
Yawn a more Roman way. Seriously.
Whoops. I forgot!
I did, did I? Miss something, I mean. Other than those spaces. That last reversed sentence looks awfully familiar…
That sentence is called a palindrome. It spells the same forward and backward. Racecar, Hannah, Kayak, and O gnats, tango! Are all palindromes. Is there much else to say?
Some famous palindromes are:
‘A man, a plan, a canal, Panama’ which refers to Theodore Roosevelt. It is also the name of a book!
‘Able was I ere I saw Elba’ which refers to when Napoleon first saw the island Elba, where he was exiled.
Straw? No, too stupid a fad. I put soot on warts.
