It's easy. The evil one has the goatee.

Done in one. Also listen for the ominous Latin chanting.

Dead for Tax Reasons: those are twins?  they don't even look like they are related


Yeah that's what i was thinking. Not even close to looking like one another.

The article, which I know a lot of people don't read, did mention fraternal twins.

I'm a (fraternal) twin, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies (actually, the article moreso).

Not all twins are inseparable, unlike what the article cutely implies. My mom made damn sure my brother and I were in different classes K-5, so we wouldn't compete or fight; also, it allowed us to develop our own personalities (my brother and I used to stick our tongues out every time we were referred to as a single unit).

i did, but siblings usually look somewhat similar to one another.   you could pick 8 random kids from a class and they'd probably look more related than that group

That would happen in Utah.  There is a strong push in the Mormon religion for married couples to have kids, even if they already have some.  If a married woman hasn't reached thirty five, the question she is most like to hear, if she is not pregnant and already has children is , "so when are you planning to have another one?"  This puts a lot of pressure on women to have kids, even if it is difficult, so they turn to fertility drugs, which increase your chances of having twins.

Utah? Must be even weirder all being half-siblings as well.

Hell, it's possible that fraternal twins have different daddies if their mom's a, uh, successful and attractive serial fornicator?

They would be easier to keep track of if they were Siamese twins.

Clearly the two on the right are the evil ghosts.

All those twins in one place? Don't drink the water, and sanitize that toilet seat before you sit on it.

Yeah, and the only fertility doctor in town is Dr. Mengele.

None of those kids look alike at all.
 
2014-08-31 10:57:21 AM  
Interesting. There were a couple of sets of twins in my elementary school, and the policy was to put them in different classes.

Heh.  I just watched that episode on Netflix the other day, and "Evil Spock" actually wasn't all that evil.  He was merely acting logically given his circumstances.

How long was she in labor for, and were there fertility drugs involved?

abhorrent1: None of those kids look alike at all.


thanks to invitro fertilization, many couples with money will pay to have two or more embryos implanted at a time in the hopes that at least one will "take". what happens most of the time is that both implant and you end up with fraternal twins

And why would she birth them in class. Don't they have hospitals in Utah?

THE TRUTH ABOUT DREW BREES IS REVEALED!!
 
2014-08-31 11:52:14 AM  
From my experience, there is even a way to tell identical twins apart.  In an upcoming 8th grade at our local middle school there is a set of identical twins, and I can tell them apart because one has a small birthmark on his face.  Of course, when I told this to the other one he tried to put a mole on his face with a magic marker.  My son also has identical twins in his grade, and I can tell them apart because one has a little swirl in his hair.
 
2014-08-31 12:06:16 PM  
Big deal. There were 3 sets in my grade from K-5 (one fraternal boy/girl). I think because of this I've always been able to tell twins apart. To me, even the identical ones looked different enough to distinguish. A lot of times I don't ever remember them being with different teachers...

They're Mormon, They're all evil !

/Comments section on KSL is always scary reading:

I had 6 children within 2 years.
 
2014-08-31 01:08:28 PM  
Wouldn't that make them quadruplets? Either way, bravo to this woman for birth eight kids outside a hospital.

Just because you don't have a soul doesn't mean you are evil. The hooker chained in your basement makes you evil.

There's been an explosion of fraternals in the past decade due to in-vitro. Fraternals can also run in families (on the mother's side only) due to some women naturally dropping multiple eggs at one time. Identicals result from an egg splitting and that's still a pretty rare thing. It used to be about a 4% chance of having twins, most of them fraternal, and 4% of that 4% were identicals.

Identical twins are generally assumed to be a weakness of the mother's eggs, usually due to age (we were late 30s), which allows them to split. And at that age, you've got just as good a chance of having a child with down syndrome.

/Father of identical 4 year old girls
//Get asked allllll the time if they're twins, even when they choose the same outfits and have their hair the same
///Then we get asked how we tell them apart (mostly personality and how they carry themselves. it's impossible in photos, so we pick specific outfits and remember who was where)
////Get asked alllll the time if twins run in our family (they don't)
 
2014-08-31 03:24:06 PM  
My fraternal twins don't look anything alike. One looks like me and the other like their father. I think what would be far more weird is if their father and I looked alike, which is what some people in this thread seem to be expecting.

I was evil before she was chained in the basement. Having her there makes me happy.

No, it makes me cheap and lazy. I.e. a typical Walmart shopper.

I read the headline thinking one thing and then I read the article that was not about what I was led on to believe in the headline. I am disappoint.

There was a pair of twins in elementary school. One day I jokingly asked which one was the evil twin. They must get asked that a lot, because they answered in perfect unison, "You're assuming one of us is good."
