An interesting phenomenon is that of so called time twins. In theory, these are people who aren’t related but who were born on the same date, at the same time and in the same place as each other. The chances of meeting up with a true time twin are extremely rare, but near misses do happen, and they can be very interesting.
I once met a woman who was an hour-and-a-half older than me, and she’d been born about fifteen miles from my birthplace, but as I was only able to spend a short time with her, I wasn’t able to delve deeply into her life, but we did discover that our outlook on life and the events of our lives were extremely similar. Indeed at the time, we’d both recently had major operations, and these had taken place in the same hospital, with hers an hour-and-a-half before mine! But what has this got to do with Robert De Niro?
