Even though multiples have become more common over the years with the increased use of fertility medications, there's still something about twins that is fascinating. So just imagine how fascinating Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette, Illinois, is with 24 sets of twins in one grade alone.
The school believes it has set a world record for the most sets of twins in one grade. This was discovered by twins, of course -- Luke and Ryan Novosel, who, according to the Associated Press, were on a mission to find a way into the Guinness Book of World Records. When pogo sticking and burping didn't pan out, they started looking around their school and started noticing there were tons of twins -- all in the fifth grade.
In all, they found three sets of boy-boy twins, 11 sets of girl-girl twins, and 10 sets of boy-girl twins. That made for 24 sets in all, which blew away the current record of 16.
