I was surprised to hear they have never been known to be born alive. Even before modern separation surgeries, human conjoined twins could survive and live out their lives, not frequently, but there are cases where that happened.

Can I have a cookie now? Still no, huh? Bummer. I guess I’ll still see you in seven.
