I remember a movie... Moving Day? They had twins who convinced the school they were one person.

Now they'll enroll in law school.  There's a CSB behind this but that's the punchline the both doctor lawyer twins did.

The judge never should have allowed such a bullshiat, psychological testimony to be presented to the jury. Identical twins do not have any special sort of woo woo telepathic connection. Judges are supposed to be gatekeepers. You keep out, non-scientific evidence, and the judge in this case completely advocated that responsibility.

This is kind of hilarious to me because I have older brothers who are identical twins. When I was in grade school, a kid in their class was doing a science fair experiment to test people for telepathy. It involved cards with shapes and colors on them. my brothers cheated on the test and made everybody think that they could read each other's minds. In reality, they just went into it with a plan about the order and which one of them would pick cards for the other one to guess.

Huh so people with the same genetics same upbringing same behavior same everything developed the same quirks.

My 3 brothers and I are not at all the same and I keep a good 1.2k mile barrier from em but even we share a lot of the same traits and quirks in public or at least mimicry each other subconsciously if we get together now.

The judgement was laughable low.
After attorney fees, they may have enough to pay off their law school loans, and possibly have a few dollars extra for celebratory drinks.

I read the headline and probably about halfway through, and there was nothing that contradicted the headline.

I went back and it wasn't until the end that it got into the substance.

Forgive me for not reading the entirety of a poorly written article with a misleading headline

I teach a class that has twins Tim and Tom. One of their classmates just noticed, after three semesters and who knows how many classes together, that there are two people with similar names in the class. God help him if he ever actually sees the two of them!

I didn't RTFA. I just wanted to talk about me.

When our identical twins were younger they would always finish each others sentences. Now they are grown women and still like the same type of music, activities,clothes, hair styles, food etc.

In summer camp I had the wonderful experience of accidentally losing the clip to a guys snorkel.

One day it was "don't worry about it, it's all good" and the next week was "dude, why'd you break my snorkel"?

On the last day of camp were we were all assembled for goodbyes, one guy was looking at me as to offer a handshake while the other guy had folded arms and looked like he wanted to punch me.

And that when it dawned on me that they were clones.

/looking back on it I never actually have any good twin encounters in my youth.
//and the triplets, were a whole 'nother story.

The article made the mistake of putting their picture at the top of the article. Once the "is she/are they hot?" question is answered, there's no point reading on.

I read it through, what an awful website. First a series of sub-headlines a la Daily Mail. Then maybe some things that were ads, and then the article, which was okay, but written by a tenth grader who will likely improve with practice, and do well in college. And then beneath that there were these things that I guess are also advertisements; odd and possibly overly intimate illustrations of body parts I didn't want to look at too long to figure out.

Anyway, the only "proof" was the same answers on one test. Trashing two academic careers because of that sounds like complete idiocy, and whoever was involved should be shamed the way the overly filtered twins were. And don't we need more doctors more than we need more lawyers?

Who cares? They're both cute ;)
 
2022-12-03 9:39:58 AM  
The only thing really shady about this is that a medical school let twins in in the same year.

Med school is extremely difficult to get into.

Good job MUSC.


Yeah, and only $1.5m judgment to compensate for upending their medical career ambitions, destroying their social lives and essentially driving them out of their school as pariahs over BS quackery from administrators in their supposed "medical school"

Frankly, this is just another example of why South Carolina should be avoided at all costs

I saw a short documentary about twins trying to pass a test in school, never did make it to the end to see what happened.
 
2022-12-03 10:03:49 AM  
The article says "Medical University of Southern Carolina".  There is "South Carolina" and there is "Southern California".  There is no "Medical University of Southern Carolina".
 
2022-12-03 10:12:59 AM  
There was a really simple solution to all of this that none of the geniuses involved seemed to catch.  Put each woman in a different building, give them identical tests with the order of the questions randomized, and then see what happens.  If they still get identical results, congratulations, Wonder Twin powers activate.  If not, now you have some solid evidence that they've probably been playing everyone for years.

You mean Groucho. Lucille Ball dressed up as Harpo for that bit, but the original was Harpo dressed up as Groucho.

I've always found it interesting that even though they're genetically identical, I've never yet seen a pair of identical twins I couldn't tell apart from each other.

Moroning: Butt, did they get to kick the professor in the balls?   THAT should be the punishment for wrongful accusation.


What exactly did the professor do wrong?  Students are extremely clever when it comes to cheating.  When I was in school, people would write answers on the rim of their baseball caps, slip notes up their sleeves, or pull the headphones trick where they pretended to listen to music while someone fed them the answers.  Two students who know each other very well coming up with some kind of secret communication system is hardly the wildest scheme students tried.  The professor saw something suspicious, asked the proctor to monitor the situation, and the proctor saw something that raised the alarm.  That's what they're supposed to do.  On top of that, you would expect the variability in the students answers to be random.  When you see two answer sets match up too closely, it's a classic sign of plagiarism.

So again, the solution is to break them up and administer the tests in a controlled environment where cheating is impossible and then see if their answers still mesh.

Yes, the old "Their answers match too much to be chance!" claim.

I remember in high school when I and another student were accused of cheating. We were two people who didn't talk to each other, didn't share social circles, and sat on opposite sides of the room during a test. The teacher was absolutely convinced because we got the same answers correct that we were cheating. What a stupid idea.

Wow, a bunch of med students used a bullshiat accusation to ostracize a couple of their classmates. They left, "at the recommendation of the dean, because of how hostile it had become."

I'm really hoping there weren't any damage caps on this one.
