Oops -- I should've PMed as well.

With respect to cheesehead though, I dont think that his second scenario can reasonably accomodate the "born to the same parents" criterion.
Well, actually I knew that scenario contained a contradiction. I just threw in some wordplay by claiming that the boys' same genetic mother meant they had the same parents but then also claiming (not sincerely) that the separate birth mothers rendered them non-twins. I expected someone to call me on it.

(though he must have a *really* twisted mind to come up with it [this is a intended as a compliment BTW]
