    to bad their brains were not linked and had the capacity to operate simultaneously under the power of one person, that would be sweet.

    like how you can do something with your left hand and something else with your right hand at the same time(please refrain iab)you could learn something with your left brain and learn something else with your right brain, but use the information in either at will and share the knowledge between brains to be some sort of super human creature. i think if we meet aliens like that we will become their slaves.

    I am not really sure how Siamese twin is politically incorrect. The term comes from Chang and Eng Bunker who were the first two globally famous and studied conjoined twins. The name is synomynous with conjoined twin. While it may be incorrect to call someone a Siamese twin if they are not from Thailand, I do not see how it is an offensive term. Lighten up.

    i thought it was a egg that failed to split apart into 2 identical twins) because if it was two separate eggs they would not look identical because of the differences in the genes from individual sperm and eggs.

    Saying Siamese Twin became more synonymous with freak show than anything else. Besides being politically incorrect, which I generally don`t care about, it`s just plain wrong. I doubt these twins are from Siam, and therefore are just conjoined twins. It`s not about lightening up, it`s about education. Besides we gawk and stare at these people enough without putting freak show titles on them.

    "The term comes from Chang and Eng Bunker who were the first two globally famous and studied conjoined twins."

    Actually they were first "discovered" and given work in a freak show where they were billed as the Siamese Twins. Billing them as such gave them an exotic edge for westerners who imagine the eastern world to be full of anomalies like Chang and Eng, giving them a superiority complex.

    Why not just be accurate?

    hey, bumbleBB.....yeah, not to burst ur bubble but almost everyone knows the politically correct term for this medical condition. I think that if everyone was just a little less pc, everyone would be a little bit happier...geez...Plus, this skeleton looks faked and judging by the size ratio of the skulls and body, this looks like the joined bodies of two small children. the bone sizes are two warped to be the real thing...maybe more than two bodies were used..eh, who really knows?...

    It`s true, PC exists for a reason. Did you even read my comments? I never insinuated that I was educating anyone on what the term was, I was pointing out how blatantly wrong the other term is. It`d be like me going to barbados and calling them africans, because we don`t differentiate up here. It`s just wrong and lazy. Also the skeleton is real. Why would they fake something that is a real condidtion. It`s not like a mermaid fish or something.

    "So wouldn`t she have been two people then?"

    i think so, she has 2 separate spinal cords like the skeleton, so 2 brains, and 2 different personalities in one body, so i guess she would`ve counted as two people

    Oystah, it shouldn`t be a firestorm considering it really comes down to which is logically the right term. Siamese = of Siam, therefore all Siamese Twins are of Siam. If the twins in question are not of Siam, then they are not Siamese Twins.

    Wikipedia is like you said not a reliable example, but from my reading of the article, it merely states that the two terms "came to be used" synonymously, and doesn`t give any insight into the correctness of this use.

    idk, saying that it isn`t correct because it has the word "Siamese" in it doesn`t make sense to me. That`s like saying a china plate made in England isn`t a china plate.

    Whether or not one term is more offensive than the other is another issue intirely

    No it`s not, because the term china to refer to pottery is sort of an homage to where the material came from initially. Siamese twins is just an incorrect attribution altogether, but it is compounded by the fact that it came from it`s use in a side show.

    Couldn`t you say the term pays homage to the first "popular" Siamese twins?

    The "sideshow" aspect just plays into whether or not the term is offensive, not whether or not the term itself is correct.

    No, because that would then imply that they were the way they were due to being Siamese, or that conjoined twins originated in Siam, neither of which is true. Besides, back to the rightness or wrongness of the term, it still came from the title they were given in a freak show to entertain white people, do we really want to pay homage to that? I mean call Chang and Eng the Siamese Twins go ahead I guess, but it`s still incorrect when referring to all other conjoined twins. In fact it would be more accurate to say The Siamese conjoined twins, but that`s above and beyond really.

    ... Yes but people actually using it is how language works, whether you like it or not.

    If you looked up "Siamese twins" in a dictionary or ecyclopedia, you would probably get directed to "conjoined twins", or maybe even vice versa, indicating that they mean pretty much the same thing. Whether or not one term is preferred or makes more "logical" sense really does not matter.

    Fine pui, I`m not going to argue whether or not the term is logically wrong, because it is. I`m not argue that it`s morally defunct, because it doesn`t matter whether I`m offended or not, it only matters if it offends those it applies to. I think though that we should revise our language choices when we are aware that there is something wrong with what we`re saying. Shouldn`t we strive to be accurate?

    I`m not disagreeing that it might be more offensive, because it very well might be because "Siamese twins" suggests the whole side show thing. Because it may be offensive, we probably should use the more PC term of "conjoined twins".

    "WTF is up with the ad before the pic? Another site going down the crapper."

    I didn`t see an ad, but maybe that`s just because of my script blocker. I just saw "Click Back or Next to continue". I figure it`s just there to give the really squeamish IAB users a second chance to ask themselves, "Do I really want to see this?"

    This skeleton looks like its from a toddler.

    Which is what disturbs me, these twins lived for several years like that before death.

    Ya this was from a baby, not a toddler. No teeth is a good clue, but the open anterior fontanelle, the hole at the top of the skull, is a better one.

    They look to be no older than a year old.

    "Ya this was from a baby, not a toddler. No teeth is a good clue, but the open anterior fontanelle, the hole at the top of the skull, is a better one.

    You can see that many of the bones did not have a chance to properly develop and several have yet to fuse properly as you would see after a certain age. But really what you have is an already abnormal body where almost anything is possible. The fact that the body did not properly develop from the start means that a lot of features could be altered from what you would expect to see. Pretty interesting to look at.

    Not a conjoined twin. Not a Siamese twin, even it was born in Siam. (Why you so racist, Fancy?) Not a twin. Like the sign says, it`s a dicephalic, or 2-headed baby. Only one set of extremities.
