    Conjoined twins

    This is Lydia Fairchild, and she is one of the rare people in the world known as human chimeras. When a fertilized egg meets another fertilized egg in the womb it has 2 choices: develop separately into fraternal twins, or absorb the competition. Chimeras occur when the twin is absorbed but doesn't die, instead continuing to live in your body. Thus one person carries 2 different set of genes, with random organs having your twin's DNA. Anyone could be a chimera without knowing it.

Tillet was born in 1903, and as a teenager he manifested a rare disease called acromegaly, which caused his bones to grow uncontrollably. As a result his body was disfigured, and he turned into what people back then referred to as “freak show”; He took advantage of his condition, turning into a pro wrestler called the “freak ogre of the ring”.

    Myrtle Corbin was unable to use the extra two limbs for walking, and she had an even more difficult time getting around as she was also born with a clubbed foot. Technically, the ‘Four-Legged Woman’ only had one good, usable leg. Myrtle was a popular attraction with P.T. Barnum, and later with Ringling Bros. and Coney Island. Her popularity was likely linked to her showmanship – she would often dress the extra limbs with socks and shoes which all matched her outfit.

    In December of 2010, a nature photographer checked on a trail camera he'd set up to film wild animals in a reserve in Morgan City, Louisiana. The camera was smashed, but its SIM card survived. When the photographer uploaded the camera's final images he was shocked at what he found. Instead of a wild animal, his camera caught the image of a ghostly, near-transparent humanoid figure.
