Doesn't this mean their wives will also be their sister's in law?
2002-11-30 03:53:12 PM  
With a 50% divorce rate...this is such a bad idea.
2002-11-30 03:53:18 PM  
How can they tell?
2002-11-30 03:54:51 PM  
They don't swap, but each have t-shirts that say "I'm really with the other one"
2002-11-30 03:56:31 PM  
No pictures?
2002-11-30 03:57:07 PM  
Just imagine how confused their kids will be...
2002-11-30 03:58:01 PM  
Well... they are geneticly the same.. so it doesn't really count, now does it? Besides... sooner or later the sisters will wonder just how "Identical" their husbands really are...
2002-11-30 03:58:07 PM  
Why would they swap, they should look exactly the same?
2002-11-30 03:58:49 PM  
Sure they say they will never swap, but if the brothers have got it together thier wives will never know! YEHAAH!!
2002-11-30 03:59:21 PM  
How do they know? I mean, they look alike, right. The guys could be swappin.... aww hell, what's the point. Not like the girls are any different anyway.
2002-11-30 04:00:38 PM  
Just think if both couples have identical twins that look identical to thier cousins.
2002-11-30 04:00:51 PM  
Hmm.... they are my ex-boss's relatives...
2002-11-30 04:05:37 PM  
Exactly, ROCKSURFER They'll be so blasted after the reception,who'll know? The twin brothers just have to get their stories straight. ;)
2002-11-30 04:10:18 PM  
I don't know about any of you, but I'm a twin and the LAST thing I want is to sleep with a woman my brother has. I never (NEVER) want there to be a woman in a position to compare the two of us. Because one of us has to be better than the other, and I'd like to spare him that disappointment whrn the truth comes out.
2002-11-30 04:12:27 PM  
they are stalking you Wizkid, i would sue if I were you.
2002-11-30 04:14:47 PM  
When these guys first started dating the gals they came to realize that only one of them had a wild streak in her so they decided to marry both so that they could swap out every other week.
2002-11-30 04:15:02 PM  
Did you fck my wife? no it was MY wife.
2002-11-30 04:16:43 PM  
Why would you want to swap twins? It's like trading in for a car you already have.
2002-11-30 04:18:03 PM  
Without pictures We have no proof. It could even be quadruplet incest.
2002-11-30 04:18:27 PM  
While it's fun speculating about the swapping aspect, I'm more interested in the genetics. What WILL the kids look like? It's a good way of studying how random elements influence the final makeup of the children.
2002-11-30 04:19:15 PM  

rumor has it that the brothers did a swap night... but the other sister was just as bad/good in bed as the one they dated and will never try it again.

little do they know that the sisters did a swap the very same night and thought the same result.

2002-11-30 04:21:03 PM  
' Because one of us has to be better than the other, and I'd like to spare him that disappointment whrn the truth comes out.'- is this a good example of an incomplete and at the same time a runon sentence? not to mention the psychological tendencies.....
nothing personal Wh0mprat intended. Others have been anal about apostrophes tho....
2002-11-30 04:23:15 PM  
Wh0mprat -- I'm with you. As a twin and just a regular sister, if either of my sister's had been with a guy, I'd have nothing to do with him. Same goes for them. It's just sick to think about them comparing you to your sister.

What lame twins they are to have to synchronize watches though. My twin, our older brother and I all proposed to our would-be spouses within 2 days of each other without having any clue the others' relationships were so serious. My brother and I even chose the exact same day for the wedding 7 months in the future. Since I was last to propose, my fiance and I agreed to wait until the next year.

Talat32: There's nothing wrong with starting a sentence with 'Because', as long as you include the reason at the end of the sentence. It's like typing "I'd like to spare him that disappointment when the truth comes out, because one of us has to be better than the other." Neither an incomplete sentence, nor a run on sentence.

I did, however, misspell "when".

Hey, I ain't Shakespeare.

Shreen: I imagine they though synchronizing watches would be 'symbolic' or something. You know, the lame sort of story you tell your grandkids one day.

BTW, all the kids will genetically be brothers and sisters.
2002-11-30 04:30:52 PM  
Hey! Identical implants!
2002-11-30 04:36:01 PM  
Wh0mprat: they will alln be genetically brothers and sister?!?!? how so?
2002-11-30 04:36:55 PM  
....and not one pic of the Olsen twins,,,you Farkers are losing your edge.

2002-11-30 04:37:21 PM  
PeterNorth, Very nice, but what the hell is wrong with their eyes?
2002-11-30 04:41:14 PM  

This was a bit of news I picked up as a child, so it may be outdated, but it's like this:

Both sets of parents are genetically the same as one another (assuming 2 sets of monozygotic twins). Therefore, there is no way to determine which set of parents a given child comes from. This alone makes them de facto genetic siblings. If you can't tell which set of parents the kids come from, there may as well be only one set of parents. Hence they children are all genetically siblings.

Children from both families will all be as closely related to one another as they are to their siblngs. They'll be able to donate kidneys, etc. as easily as to a sibling.
2002-11-30 04:43:10 PM  
PeterNorth: GROOOOOOOOOSS! The Barbi twins are freaks of nature (and surgery). I in fact would NOT hit it, even if I hadn't had sex in years or something. And yeah, WTF is with that pic, they look even more like aliens than usual.
2002-11-30 04:44:27 PM  
so, if both couples had a kid, there is a very remote possibility of identical cousins?
2002-11-30 04:44:40 PM  
This is very weird. It is also the first time I've heard of identical twins marrying identical twins.
2002-11-30 04:45:14 PM  

2002-11-30 04:50:17 PM  
Does swapping still sound sexxay?
2002-11-30 04:50:44 PM  
I stand corrected, brother linguist.

My Mom's sister married my Dad's brother. None were twins, but my two cousins have the same blood line as me on both sides, so I guess we're genetically the same as siblings. On top of that, 3/4 of our ancestors came from a small remote area in Scandinavia.

Based on my experience, I would guess that the kids from these two couples will be quite a bit more different than most people might guess.
2002-11-30 04:56:29 PM  

Normally I don't mind as well-intentioned a piece of advice as you sought to give, however the dig about it revealing psychological tendencies was a bit too much. My doctor says I'm always supposed to treat what other people say with respect and never never hit them with a beautiful hand-carved truncheon with the aramaic word for 'blood' carved on it and drag them back to the basement and cut them up, still alive, into octagonal peices and feed them to the wombats. Never.
2002-11-30 04:58:04 PM  
Dated twins once upon a time--consequecutively not simulataneously, and with several months between the two experiences--and while folks sometimes got the sisters mixed up, once you got the know the gals, it was impossible to get them confused, except a long distance. Even in photos it was pretty easy to tell who was who, just by body language. Folks who say they can't twins apart aren't paying attention--or they're just spoofing with you.
2002-11-30 04:58:55 PM  
ChadManMn You're not genetically the same as siblings, but you would be much closer than average cousins.
2002-11-30 04:59:05 PM  
Swapping? As in swapping spit, swapping venereal diseases, swapping files? If my brother, who is 4 years older than I had sex with some woman, I'd be pissed if i also had sex with her and we both came down with the clap. Not that such a senario has happened...
2002-11-30 05:01:56 PM  
BTW: I am an identical twin. I've met several other identical twins and I HATE trying to tell them apart.
2002-11-30 05:04:31 PM  
....and still no Olsen twins countdown to legal ticker
2002-11-30 05:06:02 PM  
ROCKSURFER, it's a holiday weekend. We aren't supposed to be thinking about the underage Olsen twins at this time of year, or something.
2002-11-30 05:07:34 PM  
jeez Wh0mprat , I intentionally stated that nothing personal was intended. The sentence structure and meaning just struck me as odd(not like with a Ojibway War Hammer). i.e. 'because one of us...etc' followed by the seemingly condescending sentence:'and I'd like to spare ...etc.'
2002-11-30 05:08:17 PM  

Krap. you're right! I forgot about that. I used to work for a veterinarian who had a twin sister. When I first met her I did that stupid little pause people do when they meet twins AND I'M ONE TOO.

Didn't hurt that they were both pretty. Big dark eyes, beautiful smiles, lean slender builds. Hot damn, I would definitely hit a pair of twins.
2002-11-30 05:10:01 PM  
Things to do before I die:

Hit a pair of twins.
2002-11-30 05:11:03 PM  
Everything's cool, Talat32. I was just farking with you.

I was being condescending toward my brother. He reads these fora, you see, and I thought a little monzygotic flame action might be a lot of fun. farker hasn't shown up, though...
