Has anyone ever wondered how the Cullens manage to keep living on and on through the years/centuries, maintaining their names and constantly updating birth certificates to re-enroll in school in different places without being suspicious (it's a federally-involved thing, you know) and how Carlisle manages a resume for each new job that doesn't say he's 400 years old...and somehow has a pretty recent medical degree always listed (and checkable?) from some university (because he doesn't look more than 30)... How do they do it? Are they masters of forgery? Do they have connections who are? It just occurs to me that, even with good forgeries, this would take some doing. I mean, how many different doctors can there be across the generations named "Carlisle Cullen"? (Not exactly a really common name.) And the school thing with the kids all from the same family enrolling in high school multiple places in the country and re-graduating...any ideas how they might pull this off?
I have actually thought about this as well. It seems to me at least Carlisle would have to change his name from time to time. I think they do have forgery experts at their disposal, but still it would be quite a job.
