also whilst I'm sure it's probably not particularly fun, I can't be the only one that thinks being a chimera sounds kind of cool.
There was a documentary on it: http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=2315693&page=1&singlePage=true
how can someone be their own twin?
got her twins ovaries
normally when two fertile eggs are fertilized at the same time by two different zygotes/sperm cells you get fraternal/non identical twins. In this case the two eggs subsequently fused together inside the womb creating a chimera, essentially a single organism with genes drawn from two different zygotes.
I AM MY OWN TWIN. What?
“I’ve been doing this long enough to recognize when someone is giving birth right in front of you,”
Its it offensive to tell someone they could have a dead twin in their ovaries?
It's a good basis for a hammy horror story this. Unborn chimera-twin happens to be evil, controls their born twin in some way, hilarious consequences.
