A Casual Tweet Reveals That Women Around the World Have Almost Identical Freckles on Their Wrists

Twitter users found a strange coincidence — many girls around the world have similar freckles in the middle of their wrists. People are vigorously discussing this mystery, while thousands of women keep proving it by sharing the photos of their wrists.

We at Bright Side feel curious about this phenomenon and we are going to study it more carefully.

It was this Tweet that started the big discussion:

Suddenly many girls found the same freckle and it went viral:

There are actually 2 reasons for this phenomenon:

  • Freckles and moles appear due to the influence of sunlight on open skin areas. Hands, face, and shoulders are more susceptible to ultraviolet radiation than, for example, the hips and belly are. Moreover, wrists are always open.
  • At the same time, there is such a phenomenon as confirmation bias. It includes the ability of a person to see and look for proof of information that suits their point of view. The mass character of this instance confirms this phenomenon: a simple coincidence turns into regularity.

Now it’s time for the main question — do you have this freckle? We’re curious to see the pictures of your wrists in the comments!
