The identical triplets headed home from a Houston hospital today are being called “one in a million” multiples by doctors. The reason we don’t have more identical triplets running around is very simple—and it probably goes against what you’ve heard about twins (or triplets, for that matter).
It was only open for about five years, but back in the 1990s, there was a restaurant in New York City staffed by dozens of sets of twins.

Do you smell like your twin? One study actually went to the trouble of finding out.
Unlike all other primates, clawed New World Monkeys almost always give birth to twins. But why? It turns out these animals have a unique set of adaptations that make it possible — and could prove useful to humans as well.
Despite having the same genetic makeup, identical twins have their own distinctive personalities. Just how their individuality emerges has remained a bit of a mystery.

Sharing a small space with another person in real life is already difficult, can you imagine sharing space inside a mother's womb? Insane! But twins do it all the time and they seem to get along quite well after too. But it's not exactly happy go peaches, in this video you can see the twins kicking each other for…

Surgeons will spend about nine hours today separating two-year-old conjoined twins at Stanford.
At first glance, there's no good reason why humans would evolve the ability to give birth to twins. Indeed, human reproductive systems make having even one child difficult. But twins are doing a big favor for their siblings' survival chances.
This is one of the most surprising and awesome tales ever told in the history of medicine. These twins are Tatiana and Krista Hogan. Their brains and sensory systems are networked together, but they have separate personalities. Their story defies belief.
So cute, those two and their t-shirts. Mine would say cmd + c and cmd + v, however. [The Daily What]
It could be the best 80s-style comedy you've seen in years. The Acer 3935 and 8935G are about as biologically related as Danny DeVito and the Governator.
China's TechFaith Wireless Communication Company has developed what they are calling the "World's first WCDMA/GSM dual mode phone." The "Twins" phone, as it has been dubbed, allows users the option of loading one WCDMA card and one GSM or loading dual GSM SIM cards. That means it would no longer be necessary to switch…
