Ask and you shall receive. My favorite tabloid reporter gave me a tip on 2 twins who think they were Siamese when they were born. Being a twin myself, I was all over this like white on rice.
Me and my twin did all those things you expect twins to do when you're young. We said we were each other to change classes. Attempted (and failed) to convince girls that we were the twin she was in love with. It was always Adam's fault. He was much to geeky even as a child. I was always the cool one (I'm sure Adam would back me up on this if he was here).
We also experienced the other spooky side of the twin thing. When we were 7 or 8 Adam busted his knee wide open trying to climb this tree. I was in the house but I remember falling off the chair I was sitting on and screaming my bloody head off. I was screaming so loud that Mom came to me first and tried desperately to find out what was wrong. It wasn't until Adam came limping through the kitchen door, dripping blood all over the linoleum that she figured out the pain was all in my head.
Freaky huh? And that wasn't the only time something like that happened.
These episodes may have been one of the main reasons that Adam got so interested in the study of the unknown. Being a geek at heart he approached it from a scientific point of view (unlike my shotgun approach to reporting that I use on the website). If you're interested I've preserved his website which contains lots of dry information on the subject. Go visit it and tell me how much cooler mine is.
Cooler maybe but if it wasn't for Adam I might have never gotten interested in the subject. He was the one that gave me my first book on the subject. He was the one that had the first paranormal website(as dull as it might be). I know if he was alive today he'd be looking over freakylinks, shaking his head and grinning. He had a great grin.
