It's good to have twins in Chicago. You have a backup kid for when one is murdered.

67 twins/trilets out of 1000....pfff

My high school class had 24 twins out of 220, and those were the days before IVF (dunno about fertility drugs... I'm sure there were some drugs involved with some of their parents).

It's not a record, it's a collection of gullible teachers who fall for the "it wasn't me smoking in the bathroom, that was my twin" excuse. Every. Single. Time.

Yep, wealthy Chicago suburb with that many twins definitely fertility treatments/IVF going on.


Since its Chicago I'm betting there are more baby-daddys than mommas.  Probably 2.5 to 1

Midwest City High had 22 sets of twins when I went but I'm not sure about other multiple births.  It was fun realizing that there really is an evil twin and a good twin.

Fertility treatments are mandated insurance coverage for Illinois.


Granted I'm not familiar with insurance in Illinois. But in my experience with insurance, covered != affordable.
