Jim Holt's article about the idea of parallel universes (an article we starting to try to summarize but got very confused...read it for yourself) struck a chord in Gothamist because we constantly wonder "What if" and "There's got to be another version of us out there doing worse." While an early instance of wondering about another life one could live is A Christmas Carol, it's also very Choose Your Own Adventure. That's probably why we like the Bizarro Jerry episode of Seinfeld. Or any number of films that offer other possibilities: Sliding Doors, The Double Life of Veronique, and one of Gothamist's favorites, Groundhog Day.

We imagine in the Bizarro Gothamist World, we're writing about L.A.
