:...there's alternate universe Quantum Superman, who was basically what happened when Clark Kent was the astronaut instead of, um, whoever Captain Atom was before the accident."

Source Code does not deserve to be on this page. Just because it's hard-to-understand doesn't mean it's invalid - what the main character did was in fact a form of Quantum Suicide; by having his life support turned off, he effectively destroyed the possibility of subjectively perceiving himself returning to the "future".

Of course, in an actual QS experiment, the cases of him failing to get his life support turned off would completely dominate the rare event of actually finding himself in the past, but they got the basic idea correct.

Why is "Mass effect" not part of the examples? http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?comic=082211 for awesome reference.

It's basically Quantum Mechanics.

Anyone else think the Hubert Farnsworth Quote from Bender's Game would go well at the beginning?

I came to this discussion page for that exact reason. "But, as Deepak Chopra taught us, Quantum Physics means that anything can happen at any time for no reason!"
