I first heard of the Ancient and Honorable Order of Turtles when doing a research project for my high school astronomy class on Wally Schirra. Naturally, the fact that he was a member made its way into my presentation and the entire class had a laugh over it. Afterward, it turned out that my friend’s grandmother was also a card-holding member. I forgot about it for a few years until I was in college one evening and suddenly remembered. I went online and took the test myself and the rest is history.
