How Do You Tell Identical Twins Apart? 

If you end up having twins, Ask Reddit has some ideas on how to tell them apart.

20. Apparently, my sister’s face is more round than mine (mine is more oval-ish), and when we were born my mom just straight up stared at us in the hospital until she could tell us apart.

That was the day I realized I was the idiot twin.
