I just noticed that my odometer reads 74047, which is a palindromic number. If I always drive at exactly 55 miles per hour how long has it been since the previous palindromic odometer reading (to the closest minute).

I believe the palindrome immediately before 74047 is 73937, making a difference of 110 miles, meaning exactly 2 hours driving time.

Bah! I was beat!

When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
