That's real nice, but the predictions written down in advance were:
1) I Bruno Marchal will write in my diary "I Bruno Marchal am now in
Washington and only Washington".
2) I Bruno Marchal will write in my diary "I Bruno Marchal am now in Moscow
and only Moscow".
Without making silly assumptions like there can be only one Bruno Marchal
show me how these predictions were wrong from ANY perspective you care to

Even if there is "only one" I they third party outside observer agree with
you, the "1-pov" from the 1-pov view" about your diary entry and it's

If there were 10^100 cities then before the experiment you would write down
10^100 predictions in your diary and after the experiment all 10^100
Brunos would read what they had written in their diary and say "I was
right". So where is this "first person indeterminacy" you keep talking

Yes, they will confirm that they feel exactly as they predicted they would
feel, and there was nothing incompatible in the prediction.

You, Bruno Marchal, are now in Washington and you write in your diary "I
Bruno Marchal am now in Washington and only Washington". Then you, Bruno
Washington, receive a fax from Bruno Moscow and see that he wrote in his
diary "I Bruno Marchal am now in Moscow and only Moscow". Please show me
what was in error in the predictions from ANY point of view.
