I wish I had a twin

Man I’m angry at my parents. Why couldn’t have I been a twin?

Having a double of yourself comes in mighty handy in a pinch… say, like, when you get caught a with about four-and-a-half pounds of raw opium in a country where drug trafficking carries the death penalty.

From the BBC, with this story from Malaysia:

Malaysian identical twin brothers have escaped hanging for drug trafficking as a court failed to decide which brother was the criminal, and cleared both.

A judge in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, said the case was unique and she could not send the wrong person to his death.

In 2003 police arrested one brother found driving drugs to a house. The second twin arrived soon afterwards and was also arrested.

Neither officers nor a DNA test could identify which twin owned the drugs.

Sathis and Sabarish Raj, 27, cried in court when they heard the judge say that the prosecution had failed to prove which twin had been arrested first with a car containing 166kg of cannabis and almost 2kg of raw opium.

Also, if I were the twin, I’d want to be the evil one.
