Rare Time Paradox Makes These Twins Both Older Than Each Other

On an early Sunday morning, Emily and Seth Peterson have welcomed two twin boys into their family, Samuel and Ronan. However, what’s insteresting is that although Samuel was born first, according to their birth certificates, Ronan is actually older… Now that’s confusing.

Apparently, it’s all because of the forever tricky Daylight Savings Time. Samuel was born at 1:39 AM on Sunday, November 6th, while Ronan took 31 minutes longer. Now the shift of Daylight Savings Time happens at 2 AM, so instead of 2:10 AM, Ronan’s official time of birth turned into 1:10 AM, making both of the babies older than each other!

As if brothers wouldn’t have enough to argue about already…
