Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics

Which interpretation of QM do you favor and why? What do you think of Wolfgang Smith's views?

I would think this experiment would falsify his interpretation, because a "coporeal" object is supposedly put into a quantum superposition:

But maybe I am being too hasty here. Who among you do think his interpretation workable?

Transactional interpretation. Because it isn't as stupid as the Copenhagen interpretation. I closest I could get to figuring out the Copenhagen interpretation is "the particles are very shy so they put on a mask and become classical whenever someone peeps at them for too long and they get embarrassed."

Interesting. How do you resolve the ontological issue of backwards time?
