And true. Even identical twins are not identical.

This quote hooked me on that line - "There is no one alive who is Youer than You."

About identical twins, I had to Google that one because I know that they are 100% identical genetically. So here's some study on that topic. The general answer seems to be, "From birth, yes they should be 100% genetically identical. However, they aren't necessarily genetically identical as life progresses."

There were paternal twins living next door to us once, little girls. The dad told us the only way he can be sure which is which is that one of them has a mole on the back of her neck. And I've seen paternal twins who were nearly identical in appearance, but one had a slightly longer face, which I thought made the other one just a little prettier.

You started the topic of twins, Mary, and so I want to show you these amazing sisters, who talk along with each other and finish each others sentences. Very interesting.

Wow on that video Nancy - those twins are a cross between wow and creepy. I would have to include rude as I think they probably shouldn't talk together like that. I found it confusing. Beautiful young ladies and I wish them well.

I always found stories of twins separated and adopted at birth interesting. Many have similar jobs, careers, choices without being aware of each other's existence.

Yes, I've seen "reunion" stories that show that to be true. It's pretty amazing. I always wanted to be a twin, when I was young. I used to pretend I was. I had a sister who was 7 years older than I, so we were not close. I was jealous of twins.

In my school years there was one set of twins who looked as opposite as it was possible to look. One blonde, the other brunette. The blonde was very fair complected, and the brunette was not. Yet they had the same parents. At least we assumed so.

Those would have been fraternal twins.
