    Sunday Nov. 4, first twin born at 1:32 a.m. EDT. 34 minutes later, the other twin is born, at 1:06 a.m. EST.
    Since EDT and EST aren't on birth certificates, the twin that was born second will have a time and date of birth of Nov. 4, 1:06 a.m., while the twin that was born first will have a time and date of birth of Nov. 4, 1:32 a.m., 26 minutes later, despite beign born 34 minutes earlier.

    What do you mean, thank God that didn't happen to you?

    It's an oddity but it's just not a big deal.

    Wow, should be some interesting sibling fights growing up.

    "I was born first!"

    "Uh-uh, I'M the older one!"

    What will be ironic is if in, say, 18 years, one of them loses their virginity at 1:35 a.m. after a night celebrating a birthday, then a half-hour later, ideally in a separate event, the other does the same after the clocks have been turned back. Then it's the same who-first craziness all over again!
