Video Of The Week - An Innovative Solution To Tell Apart Identical Siblings

Having identical twins is hard enough for most families, so you can only imagine what the parents of these quadruplets in China must have had to face. Not only did they look alike, they also, had identical mannerisms.

Things got only worse when the four recently began school and the teachers had an ever harder time telling them apart. That's when their mother decided to take action. She took the six-year-old boys to a barber who cut out numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 onto sheets of paper, stuck them onto their heads and cut their hair around them.

Now, the four are simply known by their respective numbers and everyone seems to be happy - At least so far!

        I wonder what happened before the numbers were on their heads… If their parent called one of them, would they all go over? I wouldn't like a number on my head…

          maybe they're like, let's say, Bob, they can say, Bob 1, over here! Okay, I admit that's a little mean.
