Why when we see two individuals who are look-alike, we become amused and sometimes amazed? What do you think about twins or triplets or quadruplets?

you know, i want to have twin baby, girls or boys, but i'm afraid if it come out a siamese twin. the kids will suffer alot until they're old. i have a sister who's a year older than me, but when we're just little kids, lots of people thought that we're twins, because we're almost look a like, and my mom always bought us same clothes, same shoes, and same things.

I think you are also like your mother because she too might be expecting to have a twin siblings but it did not happened so when she had two daughters she dressed you and your sister with the same clothes, shoes, etcetera, like twins.

i think they are amazing. they are a unique walk of like. i have 4 year old twin cousins and they arent identical but its still cool to see how they act with eachother. they know eachother so well, its weird.

I don't know why people find twins so interesting to look at. I am a twin myself and hate being told how much I look like my sister etc. People are always looking for you similarities rather than your differences and classing you together as if you are only one person and I hate that.

You are right. I too have a twin and whenever new acquiantance sees us they compare us but people who used to know us don't compare us anymore. They can recognize us already even if they don't see us they can recognize our voice.

It's a good question... Identical twins are pretty rare and so I think that is part of the attraction. I have non-identical twins and I don't understand what the fuss is about! When they were just born and I tried to go shopping in WalMart or the grocery store with my double stroller, I would continually get stopped! Yes, they are cute and they are babies, but just because they are the same age (and shared a womb for 8.5 months) doesn't make them any more special... does it? (Of course, **I** think they're special! But sometimes when people first glance they only notice one baby, and say 'Awww... a baby.'. But when they see the 2nd baby, it's: "WHAT! You have TWINS! WOW!" I've always wondered why double the baby gets quadruple the attention. I can't imagine how families with quads could manage!)

That's a good answer too. You notice that twins are rare. You also have the idea that twins who shared the same womb at the same time is amazing and incredible, isn't it?
