Jake Wallman says he was born in another millennium than his twin (December 31). But of course it wasn’t: December 31, 1999 and January 1, 2000 are both safe in the second millennium AD, which ended at midnight on December 31, 2000. It exists without any doubt the unknown twins for whom the quoted words are true!
