Yep, Siamese twins have always fascinated me. The first two, Chang and Eng were born in the early 1800's and actually were from Siam... They married two American sisters and shared one giant bed. Between them they had about 21 children. The logistics of this has always intrigued me. But, they were joined at the chest, so I guess the wives just took turns. Later in their marriage they needed two houses, when the wives stopped getting along. They supported their families by travelling in freak-shows. They lived into their 70's, when one woke to find the other dead of old age. Obviously he freaked out, and didn't last long after that.
