Junior twins not so identical

At first glance, juniors Sam and Will Guy seem to have a lot in common. Both are 6-foot tall and between 150 and 170 pounds. The two share many interests and activities. For example, they both take AP Chemistry and run for the varsity cross country team. Both walk with a little bit of swagger to their step.
They are, after all, fraternal twins. But besides the obvious similarities in physical appearance, not a whole lot accompanies the twin bond in terms of their personalities and preferences. When both twins were asked to take a quiz testing their knowledge of the other, the results drew unclear conclusions.
The first aspect of the quiz, which grilled the twins on their favorites, showed that while the twins shared certain favorites, they apparently weren’t aware of it. Will and Sam’s vacation destinations of choice are both Virginia, although Sam was of the understanding that Will would prefer singing and swinging in Hawaii instead.
In terms of movies, however, both knew of the other’s affinity of the Lord of the Rings series. They also knew that they both were soccer aficionados.
Along with sharing favorites, the twin brothers succeeded in guessing a few of their differences. Will correctly guessed Sam’s favorite food as steak, while Sam knew that Will prefers to stuff his face with spaghetti.
Perhaps the most amusing results of the quiz were derived from a section regarding aspirations, as Sam’s answers were consistently more outrageous while Will’s answers were more reasonable. For example, if Sam could break one law, he would partake in public nudity, while Will would prefer to quietly accelerate past the speed limit. Before he dies, Sam wants to elaborately retaliate against Dick Cheney by staging an unfortunate rifle-related accident during a hunting trip; Will only wants to climb Mount Everest.
With a million dollars, Sam would go ahead and “blow 200 grand on a Ferrari,” as Will would put it. Will, on the other hand, would choose to buy a “good house.”
While the brothers have striking differences in these interests, they share certain similarities as well. Will and Sam are living proof that while the twin bond is powerful, each twin is his or her own individual.
However, one answer to the quiz summed up the entire ordeal: The one thing Sam would bring if he were to be stranded on an island?
“My brother,” Sam said.
