Aha! now I see & understand!
I prefer Terrapins myself, much more cute IMHO.
I seem to remember a thread on this list ages & ages
ago about Which Animal? should O'Reiily use for some future O'Reilly Safari book, which
would formally make REBOL "recognized officially" as a language.
Would it be a turtle? I can't remember which animal, if anything, was selected?
Anybody else got a better memory?
PS If this debate wasn't settled then by all means lets start it all up again!

Prominent scientist gives a lecture on the space program.
Little old lady comes up afterwards to speak with him.
LOL: That was all very interesting, but it's nonsense.
Everybody knows that the earth is flat and rests on
the back of a giant turtle.
PS [humoring her]: Well, what does that turtle stand on?
LOL: Each of his feet is on the back of another giant turtle.
PS: Well, what do THEY stand on?
LOL: Now, young man, you can't trick me. From there, it's
turtles all the way down!
Somehow it seemed appropriate in the context of
Solid state circuitry
It's turtles all the way down!
