In yet another example of the internet being bizarre, many women have realised they all have the same freckle in the exact same spot.

It all kicked off when Twitter user Aaryn Whitley posted several photos of women sporting near-identical freckles on their wrists.  

"Ladies... u got a freckle in the middle of your wrist or is this a myth?" she wrote.

Apparently it's not a myth, as the Tweet has racked up over 55,000 likes and almost 10,000 comments from women all comparing their similar wrist freckles.

Many women who posted a picture said they were shocked after discovering the freckle on their wrist.

"Wtf?" one woman captioned her image.

Another circled her freckle in black in case anyone missed it.

Even in the Newshub newsroom, at least five of us had similar freckles.

There may be an easy explanation for the phenomenon. Freckles are small, pigmented spots of melatonin which become darker when exposed to the sun, so this could just be because wrists see a lot of sunlight, especially while driving.

But why it seems to be so common in ladies, who can say?
