Well there certainly isn't any hope of that. Just wow, I am suprised they lived beyond birth. Must be wired just right. Who operates the legs? Do they control 1 arm each? If each control 1 arm do they feel the other one if it gets hurt? So many questions you could ask.
You know...it's terrible to think, but all i could think while watching that video is about death. I mean they're normal and sweet girls and i wouldn't flinch at being their friend, ever. But I wonder if they have sepearate hearts/lungs...etc. If so, hoping that they both live a great long life, would one pass away sooner?
Lots of questions I would ask them.

I couldn't even imagine the issues involving a relationship. What if one loves you and the other hates you? Would you be a polygamist if you marry? Would you be cheating? How would you handle jealousy? Who would be the mother if there's a pregnancy?

I saw the show on TV. They each have their own lungs, hearts, stomachs, and kidneys. I think they share the large intestine and colon. They also have two pairs of reproductive organs. Each twin controls her side of the body's limbs. They cannot feel what the other twin feels, there is a definite boundary, but they have learned to walk, ride a bike, and now they each have their own driver's license. They get their own assingments in school and are tested and graded separately. They are being treated as separate individuals and each day bring new questions about how they live their life. They would like a normal life and everything that entails.
