vector proving

Let $\displaystyle \vec{a},\vec{b},\vec{c},\vec{d}$ are four distinct vectors satisfying

$\displaystyle \vec{a}\times\vec{b}=\vec{c}\times\vec{d}$ and $\displaystyle \vec{a}\times\vec{c}=\vec{b}\times\vec{d}$. Then

Show that $\displaystyle \vec{a}.\vec{b}+\vec{c}.\vec{d}\neq\vec{a}.\vec{c} +\vec{b}.\vec{d}$

Contradiction. Two vectors can't be parallel and perpendicular simultaneously.
