[edit] Woe

This article is woefully insufficient for one of the richest living piles of bull to walk the earth.--cm2 02:51, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

[edit] fucking hilarious- thumbs up!

Chopra sells something called ayurvedic medicine, which is apparently traditional Indian medicine filtered through the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and mixed with bad physics in order to treat dangerously low levels of money in Chopra's wallet.

[edit] Dosha -> flatbread

Are you sure this isn't referring to "Dosa", which is an Indian pancake? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 08:33, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Deepak Chopra, chemist

For realz. :D--ZooGuard (talk) 18:50, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm going to find a way to legitimately cite this. Scarlet A.pngbominationModerator 00:56, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
It would have been better if he were a quantum physicist. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 01:48, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

[edit] For someone who touts ego death,

he seems to have an awfully advanced ego. How else can he tout such bullshit all the time? EddieMonah (talk) 15:15, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

[edit] The quote is not real

The article uses this quote: "We are each a localized field of energy and information with cybernetic feedback loops interacting within a nonlocal field..." - Deepak Chopra.

However, this isn't an actual quote. RationalWiki should strive to use accurate information. I'm sure someone could find a comparably ridiculous quote that he actually said.

Yes. This needs to be changed. How about "Birth and death are space-time events in the continuum of life. So the opposite of life is not death. The opposite of death is birth. And the opposite of birth is death. And life is the continuum of birth and death, which goes on and on." Furo ergo sum (talk) 08:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
People are using this quotation all over as fact when it comes from a rather hilarious piece appearing at The Guardian

http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/shortcuts/2012/jan/18/oprah-winfrey-deepak-chopra

RationalWiki should not be part of spreading false information even if they are about an unrepentant liar and expounder of gibberish indistinguishable from the satire. Removed.

[edit] Name collision

Should we have a hatnote mentioning this guy has nothing to do with the current Canada Post CEO of the same name? Compro01 (talk) 05:12, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Maybe I'm overly optimistic, but I find it difficult to consider a case in which the two would be confused. Mind you, I suppose it doesn't hurt, given that it's a single line (I doubt anyone would throw a fit over it either way). - GrantC (talk) 05:15, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
I mention it because I was having a serious case of "Huh? Why the fuck is that idiot running Canada Post?" before I figured out they were different guys. Compro01 (talk) 00:13, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Admittedly, I would probably be a bit surprised if I had seen that in a news story somewhere... Mind you, I think Deepak Chopra is more notable than the current CEO of Canada Post, so I don't think a hatnote would be terribly necessary. If this article were about the CEO (or if we had such an article), then I would be inclined to think otherwise. - GrantC (talk) 00:35, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
There is also a Deepak Chopra that is the CEO of OSI Systems. I saw that and freaked out momentarily. TGW 00:41, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Edit summaries are not the talk page.

Could you two having an edit war out there in mainspace make it more clear what your dispute is, please? ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 18:39, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm not disputing anything. I'm being obedient to the dictates. And then enforcing them.
Why, yes, I am grudgily irritated. Why do you ask? ;) --Castaigne (talk) 18:42, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Castaigne, the joke was bad; I removed it. The rest of the humor was fine and underscored our points. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 18:45, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
You always think the jokes are bad. And then you create a bunch of one sentence paragraphs. --Castaigne (talk) 18:49, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
There's like 50 other jokes in the article that are funny. ><_><
Yeah, I do. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 18:54, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
A paragraph should be, grammatically speaking, a minimum of three sentences.
And I have determined, in light of your view of funny, that everything else is unfunny. Thus, removed. --Castaigne (talk) 18:57, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
omfg NOBODY WANTS HUMORLESS RATIONALWIKI. stop passive-aggressively removing the funny shit just cuz I pissed you off ʇυzzγɔɒтqoтɒтo (talk/stalk) 18:59, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Passive-aggressive nothing. I make sure I do things in the most blatant method possible. Now be a good potato and be obedient. --Castaigne (talk) 19:05, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. FuzzyCatPotato just wants to let you know you did something silly.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! TROUT! VICTORY IS MINE!
OK, grudge over. Oh, someone has reverted it back already. Well, never mind. --Castaigne (talk) 19:08, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] added warning

This has gotten ridiculous ive added an edit warring warning Bubba41102Taste the shortness 19:09, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Goddammit, that was not what I meant to do.
-manually edits-
Better. See above conversation. --Castaigne (talk) 19:11, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

I also wanted an excuse to use the trout. Bubba41102Taste the shortness 19:16, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
