    I'm surprised the airline doesn't make them buy two tickets.

    Not because they need them but because it's an airline.

    I was surprised they don't get two seats because of their shoulder width -- I would think that they might be more comfortable if they could flip up the armrest and have a little more space.

    On the other hand, then you'd have two seats and one bag between them, which might raise all sorts of security red flags.

    I have to say, though, I can't think of any other girls I'd rather have as seat-mates on a flight. I'd love to talk to them about London (I've never been), and their time teaching.

    And which one feels it? Or do they both? :confused:

    Alright. You talked me into it. I'm gonna check it out. I passed on it initially assuming it was going to be an exploitation piece. Glad to hear I was wrong. :)

    I've only seen two episodes so far -- the show where they go to London, and their 22 birthday bash.

    Several episodes are being replayed next Tuesday (before the new eps Tuesday night).

    People's...
    After the first episode, I've gotten used to their condition. Aside from that they lead normal lives. Don't think they'd ever agree on likeing the same boy tho, they're so different from each other.

    Who says they would have to marry one boy? Some conjoined twins have married siblings. They could fall in love with other twins -- you never know.

    Just imagine what the cross-over episode of Abby and Brittany's show and "Say Yes to the Dress" would be like.

    Would they go to Kleinfeld (New York), or is Bridals by Lori (Atlanta) more their style? ;)

    If the twins were still 7 years old, they could have done a crossover with Toddlers and Tiaras. :)

    They mentioned on one episode that they paid 1 1/2 tuition's. The job they were offered will pay a single wage at first then after review they will negotiate into a double salary.
    They also each have taken their own drivers test and both have a seperate license.

    What happens if one of them becomes unconscious? Can the other still manage to move the body around?

    As far as having a job, even though they are technically two people, with a single body they can only do one task at a time just like everybody else, right?
    How does that warrant getting a double salary?

    I suppose one could read while the other uses the computer. One handed typing is slow but not impossible.

    No contest there. Abby and Brittany have more personality than any of the kids who have appeared on Toddlers and Tiaras.

    And MUCH better manners, too. :p

    I am thinking that one can not be the designated driver for the other.

    "How much have you had to drink?"
    "None! My sister on the other hand..."

    I found this painfully boring and stopped watching after the first episode. The girls are great but the point of the show is to show that they are just as ordinary as everyone else and ordinary is not interesting.

    I wonder if the twin on our right is ever like "just let me get a damned sentence out!"

    It'd be terrible to be conjoined and dislike each other.

    In the Spring Break episode, they were interviewing for jobs.

    Their degree is in elementary education and they concentrate in math.

    They can do more things than one teacher could, because one of them could be monitoring the kids while the other is teaching. However, they understand that they're newbies, so they expect to only get one salary until they've shown what they could do.

    Obviously they couldn't be assigned to two different positions, so it seems sensible for them to get something in between -- 1 1/2 salaries -- just as their college charged them 1 1/2 the regular tuition.

    According to Wikipedia, they only have one liver.

    All joking aside, I feel for them. Relationships are going to be a nightmare. And if one likes a guy the other one doesn't, that's got to be terrible, sexually.

    I just feel sad for that part of their existence. They're such awesome girls, they deserve everything life has to offer.
