Yes, and the theory that the Earth is solid explains all those experimental
results, and that theory
​that explains it is​
 not weird
​at all ​
which is nice. But if the quantum world behaved in ways that even a child
would say
 obviously should then our experimental results would be very different
from what they actually are.

Many Worlds is far from the only explanation for the discrepancy between
intuition and reality,
Copenhagen, Pilot Wave, Transactional etc)  but every single one of those
explanations is weird. Deciding which explanation is least weird is largely
a matter of taste. I just happen to feel that Many Worlds
 very weird
​, is​
less weird than the alternatives
​, and Copenhagen is the weirdest of all.​
