The lost generation

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does this work read the opposite - the meaning is the exact opposite when read backward.

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. It won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant.

Take a minute and watch it.

Dan
