    Mine have done everything possible to be different from each other since they were born, including going to different high schools. Here we are almost 30 years later and:

    2 BS/Physics, 2 BSEE, 2 MSEE, 2 pursuing PhDs in applied physics, and (yes! FINALLY A DIFFERENCE!) research topics in different types of lasers.
