Page protection?[edit]

We've seen quite a bit of persistent vandalism on this page in the last few days. Maybe the page should be protected for a while? Seanette (talk) 18:54, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

The problem is continuing, with one very persistent user (124.148.53.85) insisting on adding their work contact information to the article. IMO, this information is not meant to be publicized and opens the Hensels and their co-workers to a strong likelihood of a lot of undesired attempts at contact from readers of the article. Between the interference with them doing their jobs and simple courtesy to private citizens, I really think this information is not appropriate to post here. It does appear to violate WP:BLPPRIVACY, and my husband commented that even if the information is removed from the article, it will still appear in the edit history for the article.

Since 7 March has passed, Abigail and Brittany are now 24 years old.

Already done: The birth date template on this page automatically adjusts the displayed age on their birthdate. If you're still seeing age 23 you're most likely seeing a cached version of the page - see WP:REFRESH for help fixing that. --ElHef (Meep?) 21:32, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Born in 1990?[edit]

The article says they were born in 1990, and are 24. This is wrong, correct? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.22.139.23 (talk) 18:04, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Sports activities are notable[edit]

Abby and Brittany Hensel played basketball in a documentary seen on TV. The fact that they play various sports is notable but currently missing from the article. "How do they communicate with each other to move…run… ride a bike… play sports…and even piano?" (http://www.advancedmedical.tv/shows/jfl.htm#synapsis). "They were also treated at two individuals when they went to get their driver's license. They had to go through the test twice, once for each twin. They love to play sports, such as volleyball and basketball." (http://conjoinedtwinning.weebly.com/life-conjoined.html). David Spector (talk) 11:36, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

I think an error about Brittany's size conversion[edit]

On the page, we can read: "However, their disparate heights (Abby, 5 ft 2 in (1.57 m), is taller and longer of leg than Brittany, 4 ft 10 in (1.47 m))". That's wrong. 4ft10 = 1.25m, not 1.47m.[1] Abby's size conversion is correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.233.209.89 (talk) 01:45, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

The sizes are correct, 4'10" equals 1.47m. A difference of 32cm would be way too much. I think you had a typo, 1.25m is 4'1". --SlashMe (talk) 19:33, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Well, 4ft10 = 1.25m, that's not a typo. Every site offering conversion says it. There is really a 32cm size difference between Abby and Britty. This difference splits visualy under and above belt: you can see a part of these 32cm comparing their necks + heads, and under the belt comparing their leg length, Brittany having to walk permanently on tiptoe. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.233.209.89 (talk) 20:24, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Assuming good faith, I'm afraid you're mistaken. 4ft10 ≠ 4.10 ft. Rather, 4ft 10in = 58 inches = 1.47 meters. Their height difference is 4 inches (10 cm), not 12.6 inches (32 cm). Hoof Hearted (talk) 18:35, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Practical considerations[edit]

While their physiological aspects are well covered, I think whats missing from the article are mentions of how they navigate the legal/practical side of their lives. Do they have to book two plane tickets? Do they have separate medical records?--Hooperbloob (talk) 19:15, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
