Is there an evil, goateed version of you somewhere in the multiverse?

For this week's "Ask a Physicist" io9 answers a question put to them by Annalee Newitz who wants to know:

Do we live in a multiverse or not? And if yes, what is the likelihood that other universes will have versions of us in them, the way they do on Fringe or in Iain Banks' novel Transition?

2. If there are infinite universes there are infinite possibilities.

Wait a minute, that was actually me back in the 1980's. Nevermind. :evilgrin:

9. An infinite number of them do, but another infinite number do not
At any given moment, there are a lot of whiskers being shorn in the 'verse...

11. I'm currently trying to jump multiverses
I don't particularly like this one and am trying to jump to the one where I've won the powerball, or captain of the Enterprise. I'd settle for a universe where the rethuglicans never existed and we all live in an agrarian paradise. Any suggestions besides clicking a pair of ruby slippers?

12. It's like I've always said...
Turtles all the way down...

Incidentally, Tegmark has a 4th level of multiverse in his hierarchy, but the other universes would be even stranger than in Level 2.
