Just when you think you've heard it all. Here is a 26 year old woman that went it for brain surgery to have a tumor removed. What they would end up
removing wasn't a tumor, but her 'evil twin'. Hair, teeth, bone and all...Inside her f@^% ing brain!
The term for this is called "teratoma". It happens when the germ cells (which later go on to develop sperm and eggs) abnormally develop.
It never ceases to amaze me what wrenches nature throws our way. She only discovered this after realizing she couldn't understand what was being
said when she was in a room where two people were talking.
Apologies for the lack of substance in this thread. My next thread is going to be great as it's a topic that i've researched greatly and think
about often and is related to this.
Enjoy the new knowledge and try not to freak out too much next time you wander off and can't focus on a conversation that people are having.
There's probably not an evil twin living in your brain.....or maybe there is....cue "Twilight Zone" music.
or stab your self with pencils, or massive flocks of sparrows show up, or maybe a drive a olds toronado, that says one high toned sob on the
see my post above. oh and he didn't kill himself in this book, he killed the absorbed evil twin manifestation. later on in Needful Things and Bag Of
Bones you find out what happened to him and his family then he kills himself.

I didn't see anywhere that stated how large the tumor was. Most of the time with these teratomas (which are not all that uncommon) they are dermoids.
Little cysts or pouches that contain teeth, hair and bone pieces and fragments, not full formed skulls with attached pieces. So think more pouch of
body parts ala Blair Witch Project and less brain cavity fetus.
The woman's struggle is probably far from over. The problem would be the hair folicules. I know a kid who had a part of his esophagus missing at
birth along with other deformity issues. Well he had a lump in his eye that was growing and when he had surgery they found out it was a hair growing
so it was removed, but even though it was taken out, hairs have a nasty habit of regrowing so on top of his problems, he will most likely have
multiple surgeries on his eye throughout his life to keep removing it. This will probably result in blindness in his right eye, but at least he is
alive and doing well. p.s. The doctors did surgery to fix his esophagus immediately after he was born.
