thank you.  I was hoping this would turn into a hot twin thread.  I was sadly mistaken.

book holder attention whores consigning themselves to a lifetime of domination/pacifity while exploiting an accident of birth sounds like a career builder for any psychiatrist willing to write the book that is dumbed down to appeal to the masses.

I would nail the doors shut and burn that house down.  Who the hell thought that was a good idea?  That is way way beyond creepy.

RminusQ: James!: JohnAnnArbor: James!: JohnAnnArbor: There were two sets of identical twins in the US who did this kind of thing--and were two married couples, living in the same house.

I bet the amount of "Oops I thought you were my wife/husband" in that house is reaching pornographic levels.

They were clear that their were strict protocols of making sure you know who you're talking to before starting conversations.

"I am Dave, are you my wife Carol?"
"Yes Dave I am your wife, Carol."
"Excellent, I Dave would like to initiate some sweet farking with you, Carol."
"I, Carol, would also enjoy that, Dave."
***Sweet farking***
"HAHA Carol, I am not in fact Dave, but Daniel!"
"HO HO Daniel, for I am in fact Karen!"
"Oops, I farked my wife!"

I wonder if they play games of blindfolded "Guess Who?" You know, for science!


I would think (hope) that at least the guys have a number of differing scars adn scar tissue patches. I'd think the elbows, knees, hips, knuckles, wrist, just about anything that sticks out should differ slightly.

\maybe it's just a problem cyclists have.

We had some super hot german exchange twins my junior year of high school who dressed exactly alike, and looked more alike than any twins I have ever seen. The only way to tell them apart was that they parted their hair on different sides, which is creepy because it makes you think they might not use mirrors to get ready, instead they stared at each other and mimed movements like a Marx brothers routine.

Cyberluddite: There are (or were--one of them died a few months ago of Alzheimers, in her mid-80s) a pair of twins who were a near-daily site in downtown San Francisco for as long as anybody can remember--many decades, at least.  Here's what they looked like on a typical day:

[ww2.hdnux.com image 327x471]

They were always together, two 5' tall, 100 lb old ladies, and always dressed exactly the same, same makeup, wigs, and accessories, virtually always wearing something flamboyent, usually walking arm-in-arm.  I do remember one time several years ago, though, when I saw them walking down the street after they had apparently had an argument and were pissed at each other--although they were still dressed the same and heading in the same direction, one was walking on one side of Market Street, and the other was walking "with" her all the way across the other side of the street.


Loved those ladies - all the bellmen & everybody in downtown SF knew them. they would pose for pictures with tourists..
 
2013-05-06 12:59:58 PM

Girl Pants: At least they're not doing that passive-aggressive thing of dressing and acting the same and then getting mad all the time when people somehow can't tell them apart.

(note: I have only seen this in fiction, I hope real people would have better things to do)


Like England and Australia?

if you've ever known identical twins, you'd also know that they are easy to tell apart (once you get to know them).  no matter how identical science says they are, they always look different.

if that was the case, why would the married twins (apparently) need a strict communication protocol. I can believe that applies to 95% of twins, but not all.

Sharksfan: We have twin girls.

For many reasons relating to their own self esteem and identity I am glad they are not identical.  Other than being born within seconds of each other they are very different.

Their ability to trash the house in under 5 minutes however is shared.  And legendary.

I'm waiting for my ultrasound to see if one or two are floating around inside me (twins run in both our families). It better be one.   If it is two, then I hope they're fraternal twins. Otherwise, until their personalities are apparent, I'd be terrified that I had switched them and started calling Twin B by Twin A's name.

I was worried about that too but it became apparent pretty early on that identical twins aren't THAT identical. Their hair is different and one has been 1/4 to 1/2 inch taller and 1-2 pounds heavier since birth. They even cried differently (though that might have been my imagination). 4.5 years later, I can still get them wrong on a quick glance but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it.

Hm, had friends from HS that were idential twins, but not entirely creepy about it - they did admit to changing classes a couple of times just for laughs, but as one poster above noted, if you get to know a pair of identicals, on the inside they are different - plus these two sounded different - I could call their house and know which one answered the phone by the time they said "hello" - no kidding.

It's easy to copy the superficial stuff.
 
2013-05-06 01:42:22 PM
I find them quiet elegant.  And their hair in the Vespa shot is awesome, like they are Irish Ronettes.

There were two couples in northern Alberta that were two sets of identical twins. All four were born on the same day (not day of the year - the exact same day), were married at the same time, and each dressed like their twin. All the time. If they were still alive they've be in their 80s by now, but at least one of each pair had died last I heard (could be as much as 10 years ago).

They were really creepy to be around. I absolutely couldn't tell each pair apart. All four were French Canadian, and the women spoke extremely softly while mumbling with a strong accent. Pretty much impossible to figure what they were saying. The men were easier to understand; you only had the accent to deal with.

I have 15-month-old identical girls.  You bet your ass we kept those hospital bracelets on as long as possible.  Once they started chaffing, we cut them off and painted one of their toenails red.

Also - FYI - only fraternal twins are hereditary.  Identicals are a lightning strike.

There's a set of guy twins that hang around in my area of downtown Toronto (College Park) who are in their 40's or so who do this. Same clothing, same walk, same accessories and everything. It's interesting when they're wearing old, worn down clothes, which are also worn down in almost exactly the same way, which of course means that not only are they wearing the same clothes today, but they've worn these same jackets (or whatever) the same amount of times and cared for them the same way since they were new in the '80s.

Trippy when you see them.
 
2013-05-06 02:28:12 PM
I had fraternal, boy/girl, twins. Though different sexes, they shared several traits, finished their sib's sentences, and even had their own language for a while. I can see the problems with identicals, and the families' push to dress and treat them alike. It's fine for the first year, but the parents have to allow the personalities to grow and accept the differences there.

I learned that 'the pill' can cause twins. After a women stops taking them, as part of the decision to have a baby, she ovulates more than one egg for the first few periods. A perfectly-timed poke can hit two at once. They'd be, essentially, be two siblings conceived together. They really ain't that much more work than just one.

As someone dating a twin, I'm getting a kick out of these replies, etc.

Seriously though, other than the fact that they look the same, they're pretty different girls and would never dress the same or do pretty much any of the standard cliche "look at us, we're twins!" attention-whore moves. Funny thing is that they're both pretty popular and know tons of people, so whenever we walk into a bar or restaurant around town, someone will inevitably ask her, "Are you [twin sister's name]?" or "which one are you?" since they recognize her, but aren't 100% sure which one she is.

They were in National Geographic a while back.

The mind fark is that those kids are genetically indistinguishable from siblings.

The living together thing is actually not so weird, if you figure that identical twins must be almost the closest-bonding siblings ever (surpassed only by conjoined identical twins).  Think of how easy it is for these guys to line up a babysitter they can trust.

Must be hard to back away from the "do you think my sister is hot" question.
