it`s good that they`re not self conscious while they`re in that form and that they agree with each other. i`m just a stupid girl who`s self conscious with a perfectly normal body condition. except my right eye, i`m blind with that one. but that`s not the reason for my depression.

That`s really inspiring to me...Sure it`ll be hard for them when they start dating...But maybe they`ll find twin brothers or something...xP
But yeah they do look like just normal girls, they`re just connected. My mom used to say my former best friend and I were joined at the hip, this gives a whole new perspective on that...

It may have been asked already, but I saw them eating lunch...

I am guessing that they are limited to how much they can eat? Or do they have two stomachs?

I am guessing they would only need the nitrients required for one person not two? Or would they need a little more than that needed for one?

seriously, i think its cool that they are pretty normal and are treated normally by their peers. i might sound messed up when i say this, but looking at them is just un natural to me. my brain perceves them at a 2 headed person. i know they are two people trapped inside one body, but jeeeez dude. thats totally a trip.

"Alright, Overmann, why don`t just go over to them, and ask them, if you may kill them for their own good? That would be the same result! Idiot!"

TomSFox, you`re not understanding the perspective through which I am speaking. At the time period when an abortion is considered optional (obviously we cannot choose to abort them now), we wouldn`t have any knowledge of what they are like now. Therefore, their personalities (or the way they turned out) bear no effect on the decision to abort them. Do you understand that?

What you`re describing is murder, not abortion.

That would be the same result!
Idiot!

C`mon, who`s with me?
You`re all discussing about the "Eww!" but not about the abortion thing?
Talking about it, I didn`t think they are "Eww!"
And I don`t see, what`s "sad" about that, kmuggee!
I think they`re great, and they are cheery!
I would love to meet them!
And I had another thought: In cinemas they would have to pay for only one seat!

"Finding something that`s `not common` weird or revolting, is in fact very much human nature."

Sure, but it`s not human nature if one must seek to justify such reactions, or oneself attributes such reactions to human nature, because that implies some ulterior motive. Capisce?

Finding something that`s `not common` weird or revolting, is in fact very much human nature.

But I wonder how they`re built in the skeletal way; ribcases? spines? And about the 2 heads, 2 breasts: they have only one reproductive system, so that means only 2 breasts.

"Those two are happy! How could you even think about abortion?!?"

Because the parents would be equipped with the knowledge that their children share a body, a great adversity to overcome, and not with the knowledge of their personalities, coping strategies, and so forth. Not knowing how they would turn out, I would abort them as well. I`m glad they turned out well, but if it were me, given the limited information, I would have sought an abortion.

"But I`m going to say it, because you were all thinking it, and I`m not ashamed. It`s human nature. Ahem, `eww!`"

It`s not human nature if you seek to justify your reaction by claiming it`s human nature.

No, actually, I wasn`t thinking that, and I doubt many other people were, either. It`s only your self-centered view of the world that makes you think it`s "human nature" to react that way, and it takes a special kind of narrow-minded bigotry to react to anything strange and different with "eww!"

to Lorah- I WOULD abort them inspite of the fact that I feel strongly that abortion is a form of murder. I guess that means I just basicaly said "yea I would murder them".. regerdless- I think if a parent can spare their child a lifetime of misery, they should. it has to be so insanly hard to live like that today- it`s hard enough to get through life without being a physiological anomaly.

I was wonder how those two were fairing. Still how will they be able to handle getting married? If they choose to do so. Polygamy is not so widely accepted in the States. Or, if they should choose to have children of their own. Who would be the child`s mother? Abby or Britney?

So everyone would quit asking... each girl controls her half of the body and can`t feel the other half. If one touched her sister`s arm, she wouldn`t feel it.

In school, each holds a pen and works separately. They are treated as two people.

Also, since they share so many areas of the body (mainly the lower half) that if one dies, I`m quite certain the other would die too.

To all of you saying the mother should have aborted them, she didn`t know she was having conjoined girls! She thought she was going to have one child and it was a total shock there was an extra head. By this time, she wouldn`t have killed them anyway because (besides the condition of being conjoined) the girls are actually very healthy.

Being born different doesn`t mean you should be killed off. Have a heart people. If you were conjoined to someone or had some kind of "freak of nature" birth, would you want to be killed for it?

Actually, LKJSlain, you are being mean. As one of the girls said several years ago, "I don`t have two heads!"

It`s one body with two heads. Not each girl has two heads... just one shared body.

Wow...that`s amazing. Very cool, too! It`s awesome that they can live such a normal life. Yes, it`s obvious that many things (like marriage) are going to be complicated for them someday, but I can`t help thinking that it would be kind of nice having someone who`s always there...you`d never be lonely. And, since they`re conjoined twins, they`ve been through everything together so they must understand each other better than even the best of friends.

You`ve really got to admire how well they`ve handled what life has given them.

Gimpit, Immersion...
You don`t learn to be homosexual. There are many people who live in very strict, straight families and are homosexual. It can be affected by the enviroment, yes, but almost everything can, and not by much.
It has something to do with the make up of your brain, which, in turn, has to do with genetics. No, there is no one gene that decides whether you`re gay or not, but it does have to do with DNA.
I`d explain it, but I`ve forgotten most of the explanation I was given. I`ll ask later and give it to you, if you want me to.

It would be awesome to be conjoined. Unless they each have to take different tests in school, they only need to memorize half of the facts.

Of course, that`s one positive point amongst a world of negative factors. I respect them, and if I were conjoined, I would honestly not be able to get that far.

"(And if one were gay and the other straight, it`d be hell for them.)" They share the same DNA. That probably could never happen.
I want to know if they can each feel every part of their body. Like, if you were to touch the arm on one side of their body, would the other feel it? Do they both feel every part of their body or is it split between them like their ability to control different parts of their body.
I would hate to live like that. I really couldn`t stand being around someone 24/7.

I checked out their myspace. I found this sentence.

"add us as a freind, as long as you dont look creppy, we will add you."

I`m sure many people here would find this highly ironic. Hmm...there`s this too:

"I hate it when people take pictures of me and my sister, me and Brittany arent that diffrent from everyone eles."

Yeah, because everyone has two heads.

Not that I don`t like them or anything, I just find these statements kinda funny. They`re coping really well with it though, considering just how awkward that must be.

(And if one were gay and the other straight, it`d be hell for them.)

Incredibly awesome! I can honestly say I look up to them. As far as identical appearances are concerned, I should think conjoined twins might be subject to the mirror-imaging effect of late-separating twins. My mirror twin has the same dna sequence, but certain alleles seem to be at work in difference. All of it owing due to late divergence during early gestation. 9-12 days, as opposed two 2-3 days for more identical twins. It should therefore be more likely there should be even more pronounced distinction between these rather late separating monozygotic twins.

I Sort of agree.. in this case theyr`e coping well enough for now, but if I had the choice wether or not to give birth to conjoined twins I`d probably go with abortion, it seems like such a berdain for someone to live that way, I wouldn`t want to have a conjoined twin. you can`t determine in advance wether or not the children would be alright living that way.
Theyr`e doing well and i`m super happy for em, I think theyr`e also very pretty (how old are they?) although they don`t have identicle faces do they?

mxchick, I don`t think their parents knew they were going to have conjoined twins. Anyways, I don`t see much of a problem with it.

It would somehow be cool to have a twin on your side, one could study, the other can copy off of the tests!
Wish I had friends cool like that.

I really don`t think parents should let their kids grow up like this. I mean yea, I am happy that they seem to be living a normal life but come on really, do you realise how many people laugh and stare at them cause they are odd and different. I truly believe that if I was pregnant and something like this was acurring inside of me, I wouldn`t want to have it. I wouldn`t want my kid or kids growing up in that situation. This especially goes for the twins that are attached by the heads that they have had on tv that is messed up. Sorry to all of you that totally disagree with me there.

Question Answers: (I`ve seen them before.) Each one controls the limbs on her side of the body... so each gets one hand and one leg. As far as I recall, they can`t hear each other`s thoughts. Chemicals are released through both systems (such as one taking the medication and it`ll help them both if they`re sick) and thus, so does the body`s chemicals work in the same way. They won`t subject themselves to medical study, only checkups as needed, so no one really has `all` the answers to things like how exactly the two systems combine, but they obviously do.
I think they`re too young, yet, for sex. :P I have to wonder if they`d be subject to dating (marrying?) one person or two? I would.. assume.. well, I guess I can`t assume either way. That`s where it gets -really- complicated. Ha.
As far as things like running and that, they`re just -so used- to each other, it`s like doing a three-legged race.. all your life!

I wonder who controls what leg and if one of them controls each leg, how the hell can they run? Ive seen a show about them when they were younger and they were playing basketball.
I remember them saying that one of them has bad reactions to antibiotics and medicines and stuff so the other one takes it when she`s feeling sick and it goes through their blood.

Just a few questions.

Marriage?
Bodily Control?
Death? (Excusing things like cardiovascular shock. If one goes braindead, will the other?)
Thoughts and feelings? Can they literally know what the other is thinking? Lets say that one twins brain emits(sp?) a certain chemical, dopomine or whatnot. Will both feel the affects?

Still, this is pretty amazing how they have lead a normal life. Its going to be hard finding a husband for them. xD
