Deepak Chopra owns up to earthquake
While the U.S. Geological Survey blamed day-to-day seismological changes for the 7.2 Magnitude earthquake along the U.S.-Mexico border on 4 April, Deepak Chopra, a charlatan who peddles bullshit, claimed to have been responsible.
"Had a powerful meditation just now -- caused an earthquake in Southern California," Chopra wrote on Twitter "Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake," he tweeted. "Sorry about that."
Chopra has made millions from fleecing gullible idiots... sorry, I mean from popularising Transcendental meditation (TM), and from the allied books, DVDs and Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, Calif.
An hour after Chopra's Twitter confession, he vowed to one Twitter user, @WhiteMoon7, "Won't do it again -- promise."
Ah well, I suppose someone who is laughing all the way to the bank from being a charlatan can afford the odd weak joke...
