Numerical haircuts solve the 'which quadruplet is which' problem9/7/2012
The upside to being an identical quadruplet: orchestrating excellent pranks. The downside to being an identical quadruplet: going to school with your hair shaved into a number. A couple in Shenzhen, China, were so concerned that teachers wouldn't be able to tell their 6-year-old quadruplets apart that they hauled them off to a barber, who gave them these creative numerical crew cuts. "My sons are identical, even to me," their mother says. "Even now, their father can't tell which one is which." Schoolteachers are reportedly thrilled with the solution. Guess no one's worried about footing those therapy bills down the road. [Source]
