Robert and Lewis aren't TWINS, but they ARE brothers. Robert has two twin brothers, the eldest being Lewis. So, obviously, they don't have the same birthday.

Am I close?

Umm, Robert was born on the 28th of February on a non leap year- late at night [] Lewis was born the next morning on the first of March. The current year, when the twins celebrate their birthdays, is a leap year, so there is now one day between them, and lewis is two days younger than Robert? []

No, no and no.

*reposts again for this page*

Robert celebrated his birthday on one day; two days later his older twin brother, Lewis, celebrated his birthday. How could this be?
Robert and Lewis ARE twins.

White Maiden, you are very close... Just remember that Lewis is the elder of the two. []

E: I'm at work, and don't have the answer with me, but it has partially been guessed.

Er, yeah... in the eyes of God, their mother, their GP... nearly everyone.

The answer refers to something that we deal with here in our world-wide community. []

Well it's an accident involving International Date line and a Leap Year. She was travelling near the IDL while giving birth. She gave birth for the elder twin on March 1st, crossed the date line and gave birth on Feb 28th to the younger twin that being a non leap year. And on any leap year, the elder twin will celebrate the birthday two days after the younger one.

Are you sure it wasn't an accident involving a contraceptive and a time machine?

Quite right, Fangorn. [] She was travelling on a boat, according to the place I found the question, and I guess that's really the only way one could have such an experience these days. []

I like this one. The key is in the punctuation....

Sir. I bear a rhyme excelling
In mystic force and magic spelling
Celestial sprites elucidate
All my own striving can't relate

Sorry if we've had this before. []

We all use this sometimes, Arien the most by far - although she uses it in a different context to the rest of us....
