The power of context

This is a great example of how context has a lot to do with the meaning of words. Without changing a single word, you will get an entirely different message during the first part of the video and the second one.

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the
exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the
opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.

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. This video 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.
