    Wasn't there a Arnold Schwarzenegger about this -- giving birth to a twin?
    Or was that "Junior" where he took the medicine and had a baby?
    I'm confused.
    As well as the film where he became pegnant, The Governator did a film where he and Danny de Vito were identical twins - that's what you're thinking of.

    It wasn't a pregnancy, it was a parasitic twin that was surgically removed. Did you read the article?

    Regarding the X-files episode, that wasn't the "crocodile" guy, that was the Enigma, before he had the horns and went entirely blue, playing the role of "The Conundrum". That was the episode with Jim Rose guest starring, too. The parasitic twin in the show actually wasn't trying to hurt anyone, he was trying to find another host, because his brother was an alcoholic. He didn't have the mental capacity to understand that boring into someone's stomach would kill them.

    I get Nerd Points for knowing all that, don't I?

    If the twin was horribly deformed, I can't imagine that he survived much longer after being removed. What a strange case... can you imagine another Human living inside you all those years. It raises loads of questions for me, just in regards to whether or not he had a soul, if he was conscious of anything. I can't imagine he was but it still would be interesting. It reminds me somewhat of that deep water fish that the male fuses with the female and feeds off the female's blood supply in exchange for sperm and what not.

    I am very late to the party on this one...
    But I would like to point out the obvious ethical problems of this case, I mean, where were the right to life people in this instance? The 36 year old fetus would have to be extended at least the same courtesy as Terry Schiavo.

    There is an ethical problem I am half remembering, at any rate, it involves something very similar to this situation, except the "parasite" was a fully developed human and the "host" was an unwilling participant whom is unknowingly drafted into this situation. I would very much like to hear about from the "Pro Life" and the "Pro Choice" groups on this issue. And since this is an entirely dead thread (pokes it with stick) I might repost in the ethics section?
