Look at your brother.
He got the same 46 chromosomes from the same parents you did but, well – look at him. He eats this, goes there, and sees nothing wrong with going out in public and doing that.
Despite being about 50 per cent genetically identical, siblings can seem like strangers linked only by a common bunkbed.
Whether it’s Michael leaving the Jackson Five, Roman Emperor Caracalla murdering his younger brother or Tommy Smothers bickering with Dick, the root of that sibling unease can be reduced to five words: “Mom always liked you best.”
