A honest question but what would you do if something like that happened? Would you go to court and get there names switched? You can't just leave it the way it is because of social security and things like that. Right? That's just all sorts of messed up. Fyl OP, I don't think you deserved that but you should of paid closer attention. Reminds me of spongebob who lost his identity.
170, yes and a social security number is just a series of numbers, can I have yours? You can't break things down like that because a name is also your identity, it has meaning and value behind it. Money is just metal and paper but we put value into it. Houses are just wood, bricks, and other raw materials, yet we spend lots of paper and metal to build/purchase/insure them. The list goes on.
335, actually identical twins have the exact same DNA structure. the only differences there could be are finger and thumb prints which or from movement in the womb or from outside damage like scaring. other than those and hair and clothes everything is usually the same unless it's a rare case. Go and tale your biology class again... and again till you get it right.
I'm sorry to say this about the multiples who did comment, but I think you should only be half mad. yes they did name you one thing but you grew into the other. it might become a problem later with birth certificates, but you won't be able to remember if you were bob instead of rob. speaking for myself is all, but yes I'd be a little angry too
how would finding their birth certificates help distinguish their names?
It probably says on the birth certificates that X was older than Y, whereas they grew up calling the older one Y and the younger one X. i know twins like this who due to many mixups in the hospital STILL (aged 17) don't actually know which twin corresponds to which birth certificate.
well their DNA would test the same, but finger prints would be different even if they are identical Every persons prints are different. the thing is birth certificates don't have prints on them. just date, place , given names, parents names. there is a paper you get with all the other information but it's not the birth certificate.
Fingerprints and physical appearance in general are part of an individual’s phenotype, which arises from the interaction of the individual’s genes and the developmental environment in the uterus. In the case of fingerprints, the genes determine the general characteristics of the patterns that are used for fingerprint classification. As the skin on the fingertip differentiates, it expresses these general characteristics. However, as a surface tissue, it is also in contact with the amniotic fluid in the uterus. The fingertips are also in contact with other parts of the fetus and the uterus, and their position in relation to uterus and the fetal body changes as the fetus moves on its own and in response to positional changes of the mother. Thus the microenvironment of the growing cells on the fingertip is in flux, and is always slightly different from hand to hand and finger to finger. It is this microenvironment that determines the fine detail of the fingerprint structure. I stand corrected I was confused with the DNA aspects my bad
224: technically, everyone has the blue eye gene. eye color is determined by multiple genes. everyone has the blue eye gene and if u have a certain gene it changes blue to hazel or green. if u have the green eye gene, u could have another gene to change it to brown
#240 - uh, NOT everybody has a blue eye gene. You can have two brown eyed genes! Or two green, or two hazel. It depends on the genes your parents carry. If your parents both have a brown eyed gene, then that means you could end up with two brown eyed genes (one from each of your parents). Perfectly normal. Did you do biology in highschool?
280 yes I took biology. I took it this yr in fact. and like I said unlike most traits eye color depends on multiple genes and unless ur albino for that trait u have the blue eye gene. u inherit from ur parents the genes to change it from blue to other colors. if u have brown eyes, u still have the blue eye gene, u just have others as well to add on to it and determine ur eye color
97-My son had blue eyes and dark brown hair when he was born. He is now 3 1/2 and has blonde hair and green eyes. His hair color has changed several times. Dark when he was a baby, super blonde after his dark hair fell out and new hair grew back, then it turned dark again around 1 and has now stayed blonde for about 1 1/2 years. So yes eye color changes in newborns. Sorry to burst your tiny bubble.
so then that's their names now. no sense in telling them now. their 8 and a half
well yes you are right that it's supposed to be they're and not their, but your first sentence is also wrong in a few ways. I'm not a grammar Nazi, I'm only saying something because you think you've corrected all the errors. Should have been 'so then those are their names now'.
what exactly is the point of changing their names now? they are too old to change it now. they have been identified by those names for 8 and a half years. but then again if their parents told them what happened i guess they could choose if they wanted to stick with the names they have now or if they wanted to switch names
haha i have identical twin brothers... but i dont think they look the same :/ weird
Well then they aren't identical twins, they're paternal twins. The difference is that in identical twins, the egg is fertilized and then splits in two. For paternal twins, two eggs are released at the same time and are fertilized at the same time. That would result in the twins being born on the same day but looking like regular siblings.
I don't see how you would find that out from a birth certificate. that is unless they have numbers on them an you tattooed those numbers on the bottom of their feet...
