Being a twin means you don't come into the world alone. From birth to the end of time, there's always going to be someone who was not only born at the same time as you, but will most of the time look like you. Because of this intrinsic link, it means you'll spend the rest of your life having "moments" no one else alive can understand...unless they, too, are a twin.
Reddit user, u/mazimai, wanted twins to take a turn and speak up when they asked:
Who Did You Think You Saw?
Was going down an escalator at a casino. Look across and see my brother! Get the excites and yell HEY BRO! Start waving for his attention!
Was waving to myself in a mirror.
The Link Is Stronger With WitchcraftGiphy
My mom is an identical twin. She and her sister were always dressed alike and hated it so one year for Halloween my grandpa took my mom costume shopping and my grandma took my aunt. When they got home they were so excited to show each other their costumes, but when they came out of their room they were wearing the same thing.
Getting All The Credit You Don't Deserve
My ex was once scrolling through FB and said 'you look really hot in this photo'.
It wasn't me.
Problems Arise When You Both Have The Same Dislikes
My sisters are twins. Their favorite story is when one of their boyfriend's tries to show the wrong twin this weird mole on his butt cheek. Both Sisters are extremely squeamish. So boyfriend thought it was just her being grossed out.
Unfortunately, my dad walked in on him chasing the wrong twin around the kitchen with half of his butt hanging out. My dad just turned around and walked out.
That boyfriend also had a thing for eating raw vegetables like onions, garlic, and potatoes.
No, Not You. Her.
Not embarrassing, but my twin sister is dating a guy that friend zoned me.
I really liked this one guy. Super nice and funny and smart and he was pretty cute too. I confessed that I liked him and got friend zoned. It stun and he stopped talking to me after that, which totally sucked.
A month later or so my sister told me about the same guy and how they both liked it each other. I was pretty sad about it, not gonna lie, but they've been dating for almost 3 months now and they're a cute couple.
It does sting when she tells me how great they're doing and how he is always at our house, but she's happy, so it's okay.nightunderharshlight
Equally Prone To Accidents
Dad's friend is a twin. Lives in Chicago. His twin brother lives in Boston.
On the same day, both twins fell off a ladder and broke the same leg.
They Both Never Skip Squat Day
I was with my twin brother at the supermarket this one time, and judging from this story I'm guessing that obviously we look the same from the back, but not exactly the front because I'm a female.
My brother's girlfriend was shopping at the same store as us that day and comes up behind me and smacks my bottom saying "Hey love" jokingly I turn around and say it back. The look on her face made me regret what I did....
When Clearly Got The Better GeneticsGiphy
Saw my identical male twin naked in high school. His wiener is much larger than mine...no homo but we even compared them once and his was definitely larger. Any other twins have this problem?
I Guess Everyone Handles Grief In Their Own Way?
My twin brother died in a car wreck and my family suggested that I should date his girlfriend because...grief, I guess?
REAL F-CKIN' AWKWARD, MOM
The Ultimate Twin-Up!
This story is so prime and I'm so excited to tell it.
I used to do musicals. Like singing dancing musicals.
My brother came to a performance and was at the greeting line afterwards. He goes up to the lead actress in the show as says "great job, congrats, what a show" to which she responds "oh I wasn't in the show actually it was my twin sister. But you were fantastic" To which my twin brother says "I wasn't in the show either"
And that's when the actual lead actress and I walk up wondering why they both look so damn confused.
I've been laughing about it for years
Being an emergency responder is a high-stress job.
It's a career with long, laborious hours.
There is always a hint of danger. And death is always around the corner.
So we as a society could try to help these people out and not put ourselves in unnecessary danger.
These workers and the world already has enough trouble without my stupid.

I hated science classes.
As soon as I could I ran.
But it follows me.
Because science can be downright disturbing.
That's why I blocked out so many of the details.
"What's the scariest thing that science has proven real?"
As if knowledge isn't scary enough, let's her more...

Well that is the antithesis of comfort. Life is so fun.
Ever since Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope opened on May 25, 1977, a devoted fanbase developed.
And that fanbase has opinions.
Lots and lots of opinions.
Redditor Ebo8000 wanted to know:
"What is your most controversial take on Star Wars?"
"LASERS LOCK DOORS. LASERS OPEN DOORS. LASERS KNOW WHAT YOU WANT THE DOOR TO DO."
"…you shoot the bloody door panel!"
"Why put the door control RIGHT NEXT to the door? Put the door control system in a breaker box."
"Shoot the breaker box, now the whole floor is closed until someone can figure out what happened."
"Almost look like those doors just exist as dramatic elements..."
"Not sure if controversial but they need to take the franchise and yeet it 200 years in the future."
Design Fail? No!
"The Death Stars weren't badly designed they were just badly managed."
"All in all it sounds like a fairly effective defence when you consider the design philosophy."
"The entire universe has a cool factor that outweighs the atrocious storytelling."
"Bro imagine the following movies, but if they were in Star Wars universe."
"Top Gun - But it's you know, Wedge or something"
"Ford versus Ferrari - But it's podracing or swoop racing"
"He was never a character. He was a cool helmet."
"He was a cool jetpack too."
Time for the weather...
"Han is actually older than Obi-Wan due to Time Dilation."
"Time dilation in a universe where every planet and moon has the same gravity and atmosphere?"
"And just 1 biome."
"That way they only need one Weather Channel per planet."
"And over to Klaatu for the Tatooine weather report. Klaatu?"
"It's still sunny."
These are the droids we're looking for.
"Star Wars is actually the life story of C-3PO—think about it."
Fan is short for fanatic.
"Fans ruined the whole franchise."
So, did your controversial Star Wars opinion make the list?
People clarified what actually terrified them most about death
"I don't fear being dead. I fear dying."
"Yeah, that's usually the issue. It's why that quote doesn't mean much, to a lot of people."
Concept Of Loss
People provided an analogy to articulate what ceasing to exist must feel like.
It's About Time
Consciousness Is Life
Like Being Under
"That is very true, but for me, that's the closest amalgamation of what it probably feels like."
When In Deep Sleep
"Yeah in contrast to sleep where you can actually feel like time has passed when you wake up."
Think Line Between Death And Slumber
"As CGPGrey puts it, your bed might very well be a suicide machine."
People opened up about their insecurities around the concept of death.
Fear Of What Comes Next
The Circle Of Death
"But you won’t be able to. You just won’t!"
When Faith Fails You
"what do you mean I'm going to hell?! I was a good person and attended church regularly!"
It was sweet and beautifully done. The 1962 episode was titled, "Nothing in the Dark."
That's how I imagine it to be.
