    Twins

    Somebody, who will not be named, convinced me to start looking for twins for my Peltiers. Some are easy, Some not so. I've got a group of about 6-8 HTF Peltiers that I've been searching for a twin.

    This pair was completed today. I've had the one on the left for many months, but the one on the right showed up in today's mail. Think I'm going to call them good. Actually closer in hand than in the photos.

    Re: Twins

    Twins are two offspring produced by the same pregnancy.Twins can be either monozygotic ("identical"), meaning that they develop from one zygote, which splits and forms two embryos, or dizygotic ("fraternal"), meaning that they develop from two different eggs. In fraternal twins, each twin is fertilized by its own sperm cell.
    In contrast, a fetus that develops alone in the womb is called a singleton, and the general term for one offspring of a multiple birth is multiple. Non-related look-alikes whose resemblance parallels that of twins are referred to as doppelgangers.

    Doppelgangers seems like a term we should start using.

    Re: Twins

    If one was in worse condition than the other, I'd have to go with "stunt double"....
