We know about identical twins, where a fertilized egg splits in two; half-identical twins, where an unfertilized egg splits in two and is fertilized after the split; and fraternal twins where two distinct eggs are dropped at once and fertilized separately. A newly discovered phenomenon is superfecundity, where a second egg drops a day to a week after the first, and is they are fertilized separately. This also allows the possibility of being fertilized by two separate fathers. This would explain how the young lady who got drunk at two separate frat parties found herself pregnant with twins who were of different races and body types. The boys had to figure out how to navigate their lives together as twin brothers.
