Can You Work Out How BOTH Of These Twins Are The Oldest?

If you are a fan of puzzles, try this one on for size.

Seth and Emily Peterson recently became the proud parents of not one, but two beautiful little boys, Samuel and Ronan who are BOTH the oldest twin. Impossible you might say but it happened at Cape Cod Hospital and is clearly documented.

Still stumped? Here’s the answer:

Samuel the first twin was born at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, making him the first born and therefore the oldest. Ronan was born 31 minutes later at 2:10 a.m. However because daylight savings time had ended for the year, the clocks were set back an hour at 2:00 a.m. which made Ronan’s official time of birth 1:10 a.m making him the oldest.

Their father, Seth was quoted as saying:

I said earlier that night that they were either going to be born on two different days or the time change was going to come into play.
