Maybe grab a dictionary and look up what the word "palindrome" means, then review the posts in this thread.

For those who are confused, 00soul is asking if anybody had problems finding a copy of the Todd Solondz movie Palindromes on DVD, I think.

As for real palindromes, here's a big one!

And a relevant quotation from The Simpsons:

Principal Skinner: "Otto? There's a palindrome you won't be hearing for a while!"

"Son, I am able," she said, "though you scare me."
"Watch," said I.
"Beloved," I said, "watch me scare you, though."
Said she, "Able am I, Son."

DDD has it for $19.93 (free shipping). It's in my wish list, due to wallet-issues I have to wait until next month to order it.
