Some people have a hard time getting their heads around the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics which basically states that at every moment our universe is split into many universes. Thus if at any moment we are confronted with many choices we actually do make all of these choices but in different universes. If it is still confusing then have no fear there is no Super Mario who can help you understand what is going on. Appearently someone superimposed many runs of a hacked version of Mario. Here is the link via BoingBoing. The name for this and related series of videos in Japanese is 自作の改造マリオ（スーパーマリオワールド）を友人にプレイさせる is “Making my friend play through my own Mario(Super Mario World) hack.”
So may be there are many universes out there, in one of them Suroor is Her Royal Highness the Queen of Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland and Northern Brittany.

I just saw this in the Wired Magazine. If you thought that centipedes are scary then think about Arthropleura armata an 8 feet long extinct relative of the centipedes that lived more than 300 million years ago. Here is a picture from the BBC documentary, Walking with Monsters. Charming creature, isn’t it? And aren’t you glad that its extinct.
