The U.S. Geological Survey is blaming day-to-day seismological changes for Sunday's 7.2 earthquake along the U.S.-Mexico border. But Deepak Chopra, the famed alternative-medicine practitioner and transcendental meditation guru, is pretty sure he knows what really happened.

"Had a powerful meditation just now -- caused an earthquake in Southern California," Chopra wrote to his nearly 179,000 Twitter followers shortly after the quake.

And then, to clarify: "Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake," he tweeted. "Sorry about that." ... Link (http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/chopra-blames-own-meditation-for-baja-quake/19426755)

lol the guy is hilarious

Even our taste in humor is completely different. "Hilarious" suggests to me a belly laugh. I can manage no more than a "who farted?" expression when I listen to this moron.

Once while meditating I increased the temperature inside of the pagoda cell I was in.

Generated a lot of heat.

Inappropriate laughter at decidedly non-funny material is a problem.:cool:

TM people have been claiming all kinds of "powers" for years now but there's no documentation for it. I mean, these people are claiming they can fly (and now cause earthquakes).

The most they can do is hop into the air from a seated position. It's not even as impressive as it sounds. :D
