last night gav and i were discussing the ramifications of the girl with two heads. (or is that the two girls with one body?)
like, do they need separate ids? cos surely if one of them is over eighteen, so is the twin. how do they control their body, does one head control one half or summat? do they both feel pain from everywhere, or if one head got hit would the other one not feel it?
so many honest questions that are not politically correct, but intriguing none the less. (and i should note, i’m not trying to have a laugh at them, i’m just curious)

then that got me thinking about what if i had two heads, and i had my own sitcom? and one head was evil and kept punching the other one, even though they both got hurt. and when they go out, one gets drunk and the other is the designated driver. that’d be pretty funny. i’d watch it. although i doubt any networks would be brave enough to air such a ground-breaking piece of situation comedy.

anyway, it got me thinking enough to bother photochopping a pic of me to have two heads.

  1. i dont think its possible to have one of them as designated driver.
    exams would be hard, would they do a exam each or just one? ross says they could talk to each other through their veins if they had one and werent allowed to talk….. i reckon the heads could study seperate things so they do orsome as, or just spend less time being bored. wish i had two heads

  3. Winky is right, ’cause they’d share the same blood stream, and would both be drunk.
    I would so watch that show.

  4. Neither of Josh’s heads look to be in a fit state to be the designated driver.

  5. The wiki page answers all the questions:
    “Each of the twins manages one side of their conjoined body, controlling her own arm and leg, and receives no sensation from the other side.”
    “They successfully passed their driver license exam, both the written and driving tests. They had to take the tests twice, once for each twin.”

  6. it seems redundant that they had to take the test twice, given that both of them need to work together to drive. i mean, surely they’d be doing exactly the same thing in each test.
