First of all, the classic identical twin prank:
Some 30 years ago left-handed Auguste Piccard, gangling, mischievous Munich student, had a barber-shop shave, bet the barber that "his whiskers grew faster than any others in the world." Shortly after "he" reappeared at the barber's with an eighth-inch beard. The flabbergasted barber shaved, learned later that "he" was Jean, Auguste's right-handed twin.Auguste Piccard grew up to be a professor, and a stratosphere balloonist, and was quite a celebrity at the time, so anything he had to say was taken seriously.
On January 10th 1933 the Deseret News declared:
LEFT HANDED PERSONS DECLARED TO BE SURVIVING HALVES OF IDENTICAL TWINS.
Jean Piccard (the right handed twin) said:
"It is a well-known fact that usually one of two identical twins is left-handed while the other one is righthanded. It is well known also that there are many more left-handed persons who never had any twin.
"We may, therefore, either assume that there are two entirely different kinds of left-handedness with two entirely different causes or that all the left-handed people are—originally—twins. The other twin may have died in infancy or may have been still born.
"In the latter case the mother will often not even have knowledge of the fact that she ought to have had twins. We have evidence, however, that in many more cases the twin has died during the earliest stages of his embryonic life. . . .
