here's a story about conjoined twins born in bc last year.

it makes me wonder about their situation. as they age, how would their quality of life be? would they suffer any more or less than any other wheelchair-bound child? what does sharing a brain mean? will they have normal verbal communication skills? it'll be interesting if they survive until they are old enough to talk because then then a different range of tests can be done on them to see how their brains are connected and what that means for thoughts, emotions, memories, etc.
  • yeah, i think it's super interesting that they can possibly share vision and maybe thoughts? and it said when one eats the other feels satisfied. bizarre!
    • it's fucked up to think about the vision sharing part.. it's like, how would that WORK? Where on earth do you have 'room' to see out of your eyes and someone elses.. I mean.. I don't know.. you know?

      They're like super hero's!
