Deepak Chopra is a peddler of nonsense, woo, and alt-med garbage. I'm not a fan -- duh -- so I missed his tweet which is causing a minor stir on the intertoobz:

Had a powerful meditation just now - caused an earthquake in Southern California.

Reading his tweets is like trying to read a book whirling around in a blender, but it does appear that he thinks he caused the earthquake in Baja the other day. However, in a later tweet he said:

Some people were upset at my remarks re earthquake. Sorry about that. I was actually meditating when it happenned [sic] and thougt [sic]" Whoaaa!"

So either he was joking, and haha if he was, or he was serious. So if it's the latter, y'know what I'd love to see? A class action suit against him. That's right, the people of Mexico and southern California should sue Chopra because he caused a major earthquake! If you win, he goes bankrupt and we'll never hear his quantum enmangled word salad again. And if you lose, it's because he's a charlatan. I don't see a downside here, frankly.
