> Analysis by an international team of scientists has mapped the movements of hawksbill turtles as they swam from their nesting grounds in the Chagos Archipelago to foraging sites also in the Indian Ocean.

They're not lost. They are searching for the ancient continent of Lemuria where lemurs and humans first evolved. However it sunk beneath the waves ages ago and there is a British-American military base on Diego Garcia whose mission is to see that Lemuria stays sunk.

The motto on the territory shield says In Tutela Nostra Limuria ("Limuria is in our trust")

"Migrating Turtles Don't Know Where They're Going"?

I've often suspected this about Great A'tuin.

As for McConnell, he may or may not know where he's going.  In any case, the rest of us resent being dragged along for the ride.

Now, *Gamera* - *That* dude definitely knows where he's going.  Which is really impressive the way he spins!

(Tippy can go back to his annoying little Japanese brat.)
