It’s a trivial little contest from JetBlue — it does require that you give them your contact information, which may be more than you want to surrender…but you can win fabulous prizes! Look at what you can get:
A vacation in the Dominican Republic!
A vacation in Costa Rica!
A vacation in the Sonoran Desert!
A Vespa scooter (they’re giving away 10 each week)!
The Grand Prize: A complete kitchen makeover with a set of appliances from Amana, and a $5000 gift card!
And that’s not all! There’s an ULTIMATE PRIZE. Looking at that list of pricey luxury items, you know this has got to be good. It’s got to be the kind of stunning I-can’t-believe-they’re-giving-that-away kind of prize that make the rest look paltry. Brace yourself for it, this has got to blow you away…
The ULTIMATE PRIZE is…
The prize that has to be better than 10 grand worth of appliances is…
The one thing that will send you running to that page to enter is…
…a meeting with Deepak Chopra?!?? Seriously?
Win a one-on-one meeting with the renowned author and mind-body expert, Deepak Chopra, M.D. and rejuvenate your spirit with his Seduction of Spirit Retreat at the Chopra Center. Dr. Chopra is a global force in the field of human empowerment and the prolific author of fourteen bestsellers on mind-body health, quantum mechanics, spirituality and peace. Time Magazine heralds Dr. Chopra as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century and credits him as “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.”
They have got to be kidding. The very worst prize in their whole list is what they’re calling the “ultimate” prize? It’s a good thing they didn’t push it any further and offer a mega-super-duper-colossal prize, which at this rate would involve a hot date with a starving, rabid wolverine.
I entered anyway for the tiny shot at howling at Chopra face-to-face for a little while. Maybe that’s the logic behind this “ultimate” prize — it’s more like getting to confront Chopra with a rabid wolverine. One thing that would be almost as satisfying as winning that myself would be if some other skeptic won — so spread the word, get lots of woo-critics to enter the sweepstakes. Let’s make Chopra sweat a bit over this one, by worrying that he’ll get someone who won’t bend over and take his quantum nonsense compliantly.
