I don’t really have much of a challenge this time. Every one should get one set right, and the other set includes the answer in the data but I’m including it since readers might find it interesting. We’ll comment in the next issue since we’re out of space in this one.
The set on which you can guess includes twin boys born on July 5, 1964 in Chandigarh, India, 30 N 34 and 76 E 47. One was born at 9:20, the other at 9:25; both India standard time, 5.5 hours east of Greenwich. One is doing very well while the other seems to have identity problems and has dropped out of school and is floundering.
The other set was born on March 4, 1976 in Vancouver, Canada, at 49 N 16, 123 W 07; a female at 11:21 and a male at 11:25, both A.M. PST. The mother’s original doctor had noted that there might be twins, but the mother came to Vancouver to have the babies, and the doctor there did not expect a multiple birth. After the girl was born, a drug was injected to bring the placenta and it caused brain damage to the boy. A recent suit resulted in a large sum of money being awarded for the care of the boy who is seriously defective.
