1. ## This year rocks

This is the only year that will be the same backwards as forwards for the next 110 years.
Savour the moment.
2002 backwards 2002
2003 backwards 3002
etc..
2112 backwards 2112

2. LoL, intersting find.

3. Yep, very interesting. :-)

And it will take 2002 years to reach the next year which number is the same backwards as forwards and when divided by 2 it's result is also such a number.

1001 * 2 = 2002
2002 * 2 = 4004

Further, the square root of the sum of the digits of 2002 results in the smallest prime number.

4. Maybe, too much free time interesting none the less, but hey who am I to say this look where I am right now, instead of being out with.......dare I say it? FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!! (yes I've seen those in Hollywood movies), friends........................................... ...................

5. Ugh.........yeah. And there's a world cup this year too

6. Well it is pretty special for me, because is the year that I graduate from High School, hopefully....

7. It's a special year for me, too. This year I will unleash my deadly plague and conquer the world! Buwahaha!

No... there's 2222, 2442, 2662, 2882, 3003, 3223, 3443, 3663, and 3883 before then.

9. teehee

May Paraguay lose every game.

Australia will be back in 4 years and we will take the cup then, so look out!!

11. >>Paraguay

Or Uraguay??

We should get a team in the premier league, full of only Aussies. Lets buy Elton's team.

12. >> Or Uraguay?? <<

Was it Uraguay? Oh well my mistake

I have a strange feeling our boys might suprise you guys this year. Boy that would be strange

14. Ah, well I was too fast with posting. But 3003, 3223, 3443, 3663, and 3883 cannot be divided by 2 without getting into decimals. ;-)

Let's say it a different/better way: Exactly over 2002 years from now there is a year which is
1. backwards the same as forwards
2. which has also 2 zeros in the middle
3. which is also even
4. which first and last digits are the squares of the first and last
digits of 2002
5. etc...

Well, I could go on with writing more points, but it is quite useless I think. I've got some better things to do. Though 2002 is a very very interesting number.

The Netherlands won't be present on the world cup this year, a pity... But Argentina is and I hope that it will become world champion. Since next month, our crown-prince and future king is going to merry an Argentina lady.

15. >>The Netherlands won't be present on the world cup this year, a pity...
Yes, that is true. The Dutch are always such a colorfull people when it comes to supporting their team. Always a good atmosphere(sp?) hup Holland hup. But Shiro, aren't you going to support your southern neighbours
Belgium will win the world cup
